With our knowledge of critical power, cooling solutions, infrastructure and power monitoring and our technical understanding of building standards for the data centre industry, we are best placed to deliver on refurbishment or new build projects, providing true turnkey options; on walls, floors, ceilings, sub-structure and super-structure. We use our expertise to provide the correct solutions with the optimum return on investment in mind at all times.
We have over 20 years of operation, gained a healthy respect from our peers, customers and suppliers of delivering engineering services to a broad spectrum of industries, institutions and authorities, including environmental engineering, offsite manufacture, rail, IT and facilities services.
Our focus is led by the drive to keep costs down and quality up, which are key requirements to our customers and why they engage with us early in the project concept allowing our design and technical employees to use innovative techniques that normal procurement routes exclude.
We understand that IT infrastructure is critical to every business, especially when it is your business and therefore design and build systems, that have dual redundancies, as well as investing heavily in temporary and mobile equipment.
Finally, we believe that to continue to grow the relationship with our customers, it should always be with integrity, being part of their team, and at the heart of their business.
We believe as a company, it is our responsibility to continue our focus on being an exceptional place to work. We achieve this by our continued investment in not only our people, but to work tirelessly in raising the profile of our health and safety from our employees, to our whole supply chain.
We remain determined that FEL Group’s great reputation is passed on to our future generations of staff employees and to treat everyone as part of the FEL Group family. We are a people business, and we believe that our staff are the most important element to FEL Group’s success. This is why we provide training and career enhancement opportunities to everyone where this can be applied. We also run successful apprenticeship and graduate programmes to enhance the qualifications of both our technical and administration employees. We believe that you should invest in a person to enable them to leave, but treat them well enough so they don’t want to!
