Civil Engineering and Construction
Commercial civil engineering services
With an extensive team of construction specialists to hand – not to mention many years’ experience in coordinating civil engineering works for some of the biggest commercial builds in the UK – Factotum should always be your first choice for complex or large scale construction projects.
We provide a full suite of building solutions, from the initial groundworks through to the erection of partition walls, mezzanine floors, bus stops, smoking areas and other facilities needed to improve the functionality of your space.
Our civil engineers and contractors will work tirelessly to ensure your site is safe, structurally sound and immaculately presented prior to completion date. Our project managers will liaise with third party structural engineers to ensure all works progress smoothly, and work with local authorities to obtain all the relevant planning permissions and ensure all commercial construction works take place in line with building control regulations.
Our groundwork specialists will prepare all sub-surfaces with care, precision, and with all relevant health and safety standards in mind to ensure strong foundations have been laid for the rest of the build.
After initial investigations have taken place, our team will draw up plans for a comprehensive drainage system. Drains, soakaways, inspection chambers and all the associated pipework can be supplied on a permanent or temporary basis, depending on the needs of the site.
From initial design through to fabrication and installation, Factotum can supply all manner of concrete formations for walls, floors, hardstandings and service areas. We can also source accompanying steel fixings and expansion joints where necessary.
Whether you require a simple surface level facility or a multi-storey structure with sub-ground level construction considerations, you can rely on Factotum to deliver a smartly designed space that meets the needs of your staff, contractors and visitors.
We can use a variety of materials – including tarmac, block pavers, and soil – to develop a practical yet aesthetically pleasing landscape that complements your commercial vision. Alongside brand new surfaces, we can provide renovations to transform your existing outdoor facilities.
Where structures or surfaces need to be removed, our team will adopt a diligent, methodical approach to the project to make sure all demolition works are carried out in accordance with best practices.
Once all the necessary groundworks have been completed, we will turn our attention to the construction phase. From essential bricklaying, cladding and roofing services to fabricating unique partition walls, mezzanine floors and bespoke metal pieces, our contractors can take care of all your commercial civil engineering needs with speed, agility and incredible attention to detail.
Brick and block work
Factotum excels in modern masonry construction. Together with our concrete specialists, we will create a solid framework for your build using traditional brick and block methods, resulting in a safe, robust and well insulated shell that’s ready for all first fix installations.
We will work with you to provide quality cladding designs that will complement your building’s overall design. There are plenty of materials and finishes to choose from, including our popular insulated composite panels and a plethora of steel, aluminium, plastic and timber options.
Our commercial roof installations won’t just enhance the look of your build – they will be carefully developed to ensure enhanced insulation and sound proofing properties for quieter and more eco-efficient operations.
Maximise your floor space with dividers and partitions crafted from steel, glass or mesh caging. Our sliding and movable walls offer enhanced flexibility in multi-use areas. Fire walls and specialist hygienic partition panels can also be incorporated into your interior designs.
Whether you require raised access flooring for extra storage, temporary structures for use during the construction phase, or more robust compartments to house data centres or industrial equipment, Factotum can design and install mezzanines for any purpose.
Smoking & bus shelters
We can place, design and construct supplementary smoking areas and bus shelters that meet your site’s access requirements and satisfy strict building control regulations. We can incorporate the use of vandal resistant materials into your build for extra longevity.
Bespoke metal fabrication
From staircases, balustrades, balconies and large feature walls to smaller practical items like stainless steel splashbacks and server cage enclosures, our fabricators can produce all manner of metalwork to your exacting specifications.
