Although our company is based in Jeddah and we have a strong client base in the Western Region, over the years almost half of our work has been in the Central Region and all the way up to Hail Our focus is on industrial projects in the private sector. Factories, process plants, warehouses, service facilities, large scale agri-business projects. Typically our customers are very concerned about quality and specification and there is always a pressure to occupy the space as quickly as possible. Our customers are growing their businesses and they need to get their new, or enlarged, or renovated facilities up-and-running – yesterday!
FTC has turn-key capability and it is normal for us to do all the civil, electrical, mechanical and finishing work. In many instances, we have installed process machinery and other specialized equipment in conjunction with the clients selected suppliers.
People are at the heart of any business and our team has many years experience, successfully completing difficult and complex projects.
At Head Office, we have a multidiscipline team of civil, electrical and mechanical engineers. They are supported by our in-house team of AutoCAD draughtsmen and an architect.
With almost 200 full-time site staff, we have a solid core of foremen, equipment operators and skilled trades people to mobilize and progress the project very quickly indeed.
Our people are supported by a significant investment in plant and equipment, from cranes to excavators to wheel loaders, skid steer loaders to generators to pick-ups and buses. These resources are backed-up by a team of specialist sub-contractors who have worked with us for many years and who understand and accept our quality standards.
To bring everything together, on time and on budget we use modern construction management tools such as Primavera and MS Project which are linked to our core estimation and costing packages, Candy and Build Smart.
We are constantly investing in equipment, people, systems, training and efficiency enabling us to continue to be competitive and to deliver the service our clients demand.
