Firstco adapt universal best practice solutions to each specific sector’s project requirements.

Although we aim to solve similar challenges with similar solutions, each sector has its own authorities, statutory requirements, standards and work processes such as GRIP for rail and RIBA for buildings. To deliver the right solution we ensure that we understand the business drivers of each sector.



We have worked on many different airport projects, both airside and landside, including:

  • Terminal construction – security, building, information and air operational systems
  • Integrated control and equipment rooms
  • Control and monitoring of airport utilities such as electricity, air and water
  • Airfield communication and radio networks
  • Monitoring of lifts, escalators and passenger boarding bridges
  • Energy metering

Combined with our rail expertise we are ideally placed to support inter-modal transport projects where air meets, road, rail, metro, trams, people movers or driverless pod.



We have worked on multiple rail projects, including:  trackside, back of house and passenger facing, these encompass:

  • Station construction projects – security, building, information and rail operational systems
  • Line and station control and equipment rooms
  • Line and station management systems
  • Passenger information such as public address and train information displays
  • Communications and radio networks, particularly underground
  • Tunnel ventilation control systems
  • Traction power control
  • Innovative level crossing communications

As well as heavy rail and metro systems we have experience in trams, people movers and driverless pods.



Our core competency is our process control capability, including design & build of:

  • SCADA, BMS and PLC control systems
  • Data communication networks
  • Motor control centres
