Fullcircle Total Facilities Management, are a National FM company whose HQ is based in Cwmbran, South Wales, won the complete 3m mechanical and electrical contract from Kier & Balfour Beatty to sub-contract various projects.

Electrical Contracts Manager, Neil Jenkins, said; “This is another milestone in FullCircle’s ever-expanding portfolio. We currently have over 30 full time engineers on site at Lyneham, alongside CAD designers and senior supervisors.

Gary Smith, Business Development Manager, added; “FullCircle offer a vast variety of complete service solutions and are already looking ahead to some large mechanical and electrical projects in and around the UK. Daryl Moss [Managing Director] and I are already in discussions surrounding similar works. Gary added; “all departments, from electrical, construction, heating, ventilation and air conditioning can work independently or, on a project like this, it gives opportunity for the departments to join forces. Even the ventilation ducting for the project has been manufactured at FullCircle’s fabrication unit – it’s great selling services for a company so self-sufficient. Bespoke service offering are one of FullCircle’s key selling points”.
