FIFM - Mechanical & Electrical

Dovetail Group successfully tendered for the Mechanical & Electrical contract, encompassing all non-tenanted space within the building and its surrounding area.
  • FIFM - Friars House, Coventry
  • Friars House is a prominent, 11 storey comprehensively refurbished office building in the heart of Coventry City Centre & adjacent to the Friargate Development, a 1.5 billion re-generation scheme which provides more than 3 million square feet of offed led mixed-use developments. The development now links Coventry Train Station to the City Centre and provides large open public spaces and landscaped areas creating a modern and functional environment to live and work.

    The building consists of 13,760 sqm2 of available office space, and is currently under the management of our client, FIFM.

    In 2019, Dovetail Group successfully tendered for the Mechanical & Electrical contract, encompassing all non-tenanted space within the building and its surrounding area.
  • ‏‏‎ ‎
  • Structuring the contract with a mixture of self-delivered and sub-contracted M&E works, over the last 12 months we have been able to achieve a marked increase in building compliance and work closely with FIFM with the planning and implementation of other upgrades to the building.

    Our Reactive & Building Maintenance dept also offer a 24/7 emergency response service for all non-contracted maintenance needs.

    The works were completed to schedule, with fantastic results, & we have since been awarded an additional and far more extensive programme which is due to commence in March 2020.
