FDS Contracting Shortlisted for Construction News Specialist Contractor Award
FDS Contracting’ business achievements, development and innovative approach to fire safety system design have seen it shortlisted for a major construction industry award.
Selected by an expert panel of judges, FDS Contracting (FDS) is joined by seven other companies hoping to receive the title of Specialist Contractor of the Year in the Construction News Awards 2015.
The decision takes into account FDS’ business accomplishments in 2014, a year which saw the company achieve the highest annual turnover in its history, as well as bringing 26 new clients on board while retaining 70% of its existing customer base.
Key to reaching these milestone figures is FDS’ excellent turnkey service which includes design, installation, commissioning and maintenance.
The judges also considered FDS’ work on one of its largest projects to date, Galliard Construction’s New Capital Quay development, which saw the company design and deliver mechanical smoke venting systems and corridor environmental systems for all 12 blocks on site.
In addition, the project saw one of the first installations of FDS’ innovative BS 5839 compliant FireSmart control panel, demonstrating the company’s commitment to developing new systems and processes to meet its customers’ needs. By taking this approach and working closely with the end client, FDS was able to complete the project within the required timescales, despite the introduction of a number of unexpected variations.
The winner of the Construction News Awards’ Specialist Contractor of the Year category will be announced on the 30th of June 2015.
