Why Fews?

Temporary structure installation

Fast Installation

Time is sometimes of the essence and regardless of careful planning, quick reaction times can be vital to keeping a production on schedule.  Fews’ project management team can plan and execute a build at very short notice where this is necessary. Our processes are clear and audited to ensure that everything is on site when it needs to be there.

Therefore, if your requirement is urgent, we can design, schedule, and assemble structures very quickly.  To achieve this, we hold significant inventory and will advise on the turnaround time in each case.

Turnkey Solutions

We are experts in the temporary buildings industry, and we can offer full turnkey solutions for a variety of applications.

In many cases, your team will want to arrive on location to find everything ready to go and Fews’ project managers are experts in detailed planning; making sure all the right questions are asked to ensure a very smooth handover.

Specialist services for site scanning, ground works are available, and we can assist with planning permission through dedicated partners.

Our team of experienced project managers, site managers, foremen and installation crews are focussed on making sure everything is ready to go from day one.

Over the years, Fews has built up a strong network of trusted suppliers, and are able to tap into a deep well of experience to solve any unexpected on-site problems.

Beyond the building, we can include specialist flooring, lighting, heating, air conditioning and power distribution if required.

Service

Fews offer an exceptional service and will strive to find the perfect structure for your project with our proactive and personal approach. Each request is led from enquiry to build by one of our expertly trained project managers ensuring continuity and a seamless process.

We understand the need to react quickly in some situations, so our processes allow the fast turnaround of projects.

We have nationwide coverage and beyond if required, so our structures are available to hire or purchase anywhere in the UK and mainland Europe.

Our service means certainty for our customers; certainty in the accuracy of our pricing – no hidden charges, certainty that we will meet our delivery commitments, and certainty that our products are of the highest quality.

Each project is allocated a team headed by a project manager and including an operations manager, CAD designer, foreman, rigging team leader and crew.  All site staff receive regular training such as “Structure Safe” manual handling, use of machinery and health and safety.

Site visits are essential, free and without obligation.

Safety

In conjunction with independent industry specific consultants, we have created robust and detailed documented safe systems. From our overall policies to method statements for different building types, risk assessments for hazardous activities and documented inspection systems of our equipment, you can be sure that our tried and tested systems can be relied upon.

In addition, our crews are trained in H&S procedures and wear appropriate PPE at all times. All of our buildings can have site specific structural engineering calculations.

Over the period of the pandemic we have adopted specific Covid-safe practices to reduce risk of spreading  the virus.

Environmental

Fews, through our sustainability arm Fews Green, are committed to environmental sustainability and throughout our business we look for ways to adopt green working practices, including recycling goods consumed in the process of running the business. From office paper to print cartridges and marquee carpet to board floor, we make every attempt to minimise waste and ensure used products re-enter the process to be converted in secondary goods.

Our carpets for example are converted into pellets, used in the production of moulded plastic goods and our old PVC marquee walls go to making protective bags for new PVC and linings.

Our heating is generated by Biomass and recently, we further extended our commitment to the environment by introducing solar power to generate electricity.
