SES scores £45m M&E university contract

SES Engineering Services (SES), part of the Wates Group, has announced a £45 million M&E contract win for its York office, at Leeds Beckett University’s new sports hub.

Working alongside main contractor, Galliford Try, SES has been appointed to design and install a full range of building services on Leeds Beckett University’s new build state-of-the-art Carnegie Teaching and Research Building, which will house its world-leading Carnegie School of Sport, at its Headingley campus.

As one of the largest providers of sport in UK higher education, The Carnegie School of Sport will allow the university to unite its specialised teaching and research laboratories as well as deliver a hub for elite athletes and sports and industry partners.

The building, which is the first to be constructed on the site for over 40-years, will also include a hypoxic laboratory, a health and wellbeing studio, an indoor 60m sprint track for performance training and analysis, a roof walker track and terrace, and an enhanced strength and conditioning space as well as changing and recovery facilities.

SES secured the contract due to its ability to work in tandem with main contractors during the bidding stages and work to BIM Level 2. SES clearly set out its strategy for project delivery as well as developing designs for the full range of building services it will install once on site.

SES’ Business Director North and Scotland, Steve Joyce, said: “Having recently had the privilege of working with Galliford Try on a number of complex higher education facilities, such as the award-winning refurbishment of the University of Leeds’ world-class School of Chemical and Process Engineering, we have amassed a great deal of knowledge and experience of the sector.

“To be involved with such an innovative building as the Carnegie Teaching and Research Building further cements our excellent working relationship with the contractor. It also presents a further opportunity for SES to demonstrate its BIM Level 2 experience to great effect.”

Construction of the teaching and research facility is due for completion in Autumn 2019.
