Mechanical and Electrical (M&E)

Mechanical and Electrical (M&E) Services

Factotum delivers mechanical and electrical engineering contracts for commercial properties that need assistance at varying stages of the implementation process, from the initial audit through to project design and system installation.

Our M&E services are built entirely around you. Whether you need us to produce a small but flexible service line agreement, or you’re searching for a completely integrated hard FM solution, we’ll adapt our way of working to suit the needs of your project.


You can call on our team to not only maintain the fabric and infrastructure of your building, but also provide advice on additional systems that will enhance the safety and functional aspects of your commercial environment, including fire alarms, security installations, data networks and HVAC units. Our specialist mechanical and electrical contractors are trained and accredited to high standards and are highly adept at working in tandem with other trades to ensure a smooth path to completion.


Expertly designed, carefully maintained plumbing systems play a central role in any business premises. We deliver complete commercial plumbing services to keep your facilities performing at their best and your operations in full flow at all times. Our plumbers will collaborate with our drainage specialists to ensure sewerage provisions are taken into account. 


Our electrical services encompass an extraordinary range of disciplines and components, from full commercial electrical and distribution network installations to the development of external lighting systems that utilise the latest in energy efficient LED technologies. All our electrical projects are overseen by our dedicated project managers and carried out by NICEIC certified contractors.

Fire safety

Factotum can help you design, install and maintain fire alarm and smoke ventilation systems that conform to The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 – the legislation governing fire safety in commercial buildings – and the UK’s core fire safety standard, BS 5839-1. Our accredited engineers can then be instructed to visit your premises at regular intervals, as part of an ongoing maintenance plan, to check all components are working correctly.


When it comes to keeping your staff and visitors safe, cutting corners isn’t an option. We’ll help you explore various means of controlling who enters and leaves your building; our commercial security specialists can install all manner of surveillance tech, from door entry systems and visitor intercoms through to comprehensive CCTV camera networks that span the length and breadth of your property.


Our dedicated team of data engineers deliver powerful, discreet and fully integrated data systems, designed to optimise connectivity and minimise downtime through degradation or unscheduled outages. We are also specialists in installing high performance data networks with Cat5e-Cat8 cables and Nexans standard products.


Today’s commercial heating and cooling systems can be configured to cover sites with varying environmental requirements. We have plenty of practical experience in designing, implementing and maintaining HVAC setups that meet the needs of commercial or industrial buildings with more complex needs than the average workplace.

Commercial gas installations

Factotum has been fitting, repairing and maintaining gasworks in commercial spaces for many years. We can undertake jobs of all sizes; you’ll often find our engineers adding new pipework to new builds, moving components to accommodate new design requirements, and testing gas equipment to ensure it meets current standards, including BS 6891:2015.
