Fortel Sectors


'We bring teams to you and hit the ground digging, so we're more productive'

Fortel offers a safe pair of hands, routinely working with major names and in high-pressure situations.
We've successfully delivered projects in a wide range of environments around the country, with particular experience in a number of key sectors.


Roads & Motorways

We have particular strength in transport, and regularly work with leading contractors such as Balfour Beatty, Birse, Osborne and Volker Fitzpatrick. The major projects we've recently delivered include the £2.2m, central reservation works at the Junction 4 of the M5, and the crossover work at M1, Junction 23A, which we completed significantly ahead of the 12 week programme by working days and nights.



Our experience covers all kinds of transport networks, and we're specialists in rail, where recent work includes a major improvement programme in Leeds for the Buckingham Group. Our concreting specialists achieved a tight, 12-week deadline on an Ilkley-based scheme that demanded concrete panels to be cast and installed between embankment kingposts.



We've built up our expertise in large-scale retail and have delivered some substantial projects around the UK, particularly with McLaren Construction. For Morrison in Bridgewater, our £1.8m groundworks package was delivered in under four months and included drainage, petrol interceptors and attenuation tanks. At Waitrose in Stratford-upon-Avon, a package worth close to £1m also included a sewage treatment plant and external yard concreting.



We're totally comfortable and qualified to work in highly secure defence environments. At MOOG Aircraft Group in Wolverhampton, we helped deliver a new factory for this civil and military aerospace control specialist, including 278 separate works valued at £1.8m.



We're capable of taking on major commercial developments and delivering them successfully on time and to budget. Our £3m programme to help GSE Group create its new distribution and storage centre in Rugeley, West Midlands, is just one example. We've also been at the heart of a number of projects for regeneration specialist St Modwen on the £150m redevelopment of the former Goodyear plant in Wolverhampton, including a crucial groundworks package on the old tyre storage area, which we achieved in three weeks.



We have been working for over five years with major power clients including Alstom, Bam Nuttall, Clugston, Kier and Vinci, and we currently have more than 300 people dedicated to the power industry. Recent projects include supplying up to 125 personnel each for Energy Recovery Facilities in Leeds and Wilton, and supplying labour to diverse and geographically widespread projects including the Hinkley Point C nuclear power station in Somerset and the Tilbury wind farm in Sussex.



Our long history of working in the water industry has developed strong and productive relationships. As a result of these we currently supply AMP 5 contractors working with Anglia Water, Thames Water, Severn Trent Water, Yorkshire Water and United Utilities. Our specialist and fully trained water industry operatives are supported by our ISO 9001-compliant IMS and a qualified trainer able to provide new and updated worker certificates.


Hotel & Leisure

Our strong track record in hotels and leisure facilities has been based on our ability to deliver high quality accommodation and great value for money. Over the years, our projects have embraced, health, fitness, sports and country clubs, sports centres and swimming pools, holiday parks, lodges and hotels.
