SES secures M&E works on landmark university project

SES Engineering Services will design and deliver mechanical and engineering (M&E) services for University of Strathclyde’s new Sports, Health and Wellbeing Centre in Glasgow city centre.

The £3.9 million contract marks the firm’s first Scottish collaboration with Graham Construction. This new building is part of a wider investment by the university, with the centre set to provide training facilities and advanced teaching provision for sports coaches, PE teachers and fitness professionals. Features include a six-lane 25 metre swimming pool, a fitness suite for up to 180 people, squash courts and a multi-use sports hall.

Colin Walker, SES’ business director Scotland said, “Following previous successful collaborations with Graham Construction in the north west of England, SES is thrilled to work with them again on this landmark higher education project for the city of Glasgow. This proven partnership will be instrumental in achieving the planned project completion of June 2018.

“Central to securing this project was our focus on pre-construction activities and our ability to take ownership of the design process, and our expert team looks forward to working with the client team to deliver the best end result.”

SES’ offsite manufacturing facility, Prism, will be used on the project to reduce on-site production time.
