Contract wins mark milestone for SES in Scotland


SES Engineering Services has secured two contracts worth around £10 million to provide mechanical and engineering (M&E) services at projects near Edinburgh.

Working with main contractor Morrison Construction and end-client Midlothian Council, SES will deliver M&E services for both the Loanhead Centre and the Newbattle Community Campus in Dalkeith, the latter of which is being delivered through the Council’s development partner, hub South East Scotland.

The Newbattle Community Campus project includes a community centre, sports hall and swimming pool.  The £34 million campus is due to open next  year, with the secondary school housing around 1,200 students.

The Loanhead Centre is part of a £15.4 million community facility comprising a leisure centre, library and health centre, a new primary school and an enlargement of the existing Paradykes Primary, currently located across the road.

SES described the wins as a “major milestone” for its Scottish operation. The firm’s offsite manufacturing facility, Prism, will be used on the projects, with 177 prefabricated modules set to be installed on site.

Colin Walker, SES’ business director Scotland and major projects said, “The successful collaboration between Morrison Construction and SES was vital to secure this second project for Midlothian Council, which is striving to improve and expand community facilities in the area.

“This continued partnership will greatly contribute to the goal of achieving project completion and delivering stand-out new schools and community centres for the people of Loanhead and Dalkeith.

“These projects represent two of a number of public sector and education projects that we are currently working on in Scotland as we expand our operations here and we are proud to be making a difference delivering buildings that will have a real impact on people’s lives.”
