Why FE&C

Safety Record

FE&C has a demonstrated history of safe work performance on some of the most hazardous and complex work in the country.  In 2010, we celebrated our first million man-hours without a lost-time safety incident, and for the year 2011, our EMR rating is only 0.6094.  And we have had no releases, uptakes, radiological contaminations, spills, or environmental damage – ever.

We owe this success to our serious implementation of the Integrated Safety Management System (ISMS) principles and our carefully crafted safety culture

Corporate Governance

Small Business with Big Business Accountability.
  We may be classified as a small business, but our board of directors is anything but small.  Our robust board, made up of well-known business and government leaders, provide governance to our rapidly growing small business. Each person brings a unique perspective and exceptional expertise including management, construction, engineering, and environmental clean-up in governmental, energy, mining, transportation and commercial markets.  FE&C has unmatched executive leadership from across the government agency complex as well as from government and commercial clients from around the world.  In addition, FE&C’s board packs political punch, with a former US and State Congressmen and former State cabinet members, providing influential access to political leaders from all parties.

Meet our board of directors and see for yourself.

 

Expertise

At FE&C, we’ve demonstrated time and again that we can provide in-depth services to government agencies and large commercial complexes.  FE&C has been doing dangerous work for a decade, and our team members have been doing it longer than that.  Our corporate officers, project managers, and superintendents each have over 25 years of hands-on experience in planning work from conceptual design through completion, and we maintain a core of highly skilled and trained project personnel – from management to trade.  FE&C’s 200 employees have a high level of employee satisfaction, so we have a very low turnover rate and we can keep our intellectual assets. As a result, we have the confidence it takes to look at a problem and know instantly how to proceed, both safely and efficiently.

Because we have a deep breadth of experience, we feel comfortable doing the work ourselves versus farming it out to subcontractors.  FE&C usually self-performs greater than 90% of the work on its projects.  This saves our clients time and money, and we can best control our quality and safety in this way.

 

Customer Satisfaction

FE&C has a strong history of customer satisfaction.  We have implemented a customer survey program, and have achieved exceptional ratings in our feedback from these surveys.  In addition, our customer satisfaction is demonstrated through repeat business.  95% of our clients have repeated business with us and we have long-standing business relationships with many large and well-known corprorations.  We are proud of our long, happy and successful relationship with our clients.

 

Equipment

Many construction companies rely on rental equipment to get the job done.  Not at FE&C.  Because we own over $10 Million in “yellow iron” inventory, our rental needs are low and our operation is nimble.  We can mobilize for a job very quickly, which translates into a shorter project timeline.

Our equipment fleet is younger and well-maintained than most contractors.  We have an extensive fleet of mostly very large mining-type equipment including excavators, wheel-loaders, backhoes, graders, pickups, semi trucks, forklifts and cranes.  All equipment is available for lease when not in use.  Below is a small sampling of equipment owned and operated by FE&C.
