ECG’s stellar reputation for quality service delivery and our organisation’s extensive team of highly qualified and competent Water Hygiene personnel operating throughout Glasgow, giving the University of Glasgow the confidence to select ECG to carry out these highly important Legionella prevention works throughout their campuses.
