SES Engineering Services wins £9.2m M&E student accommodation contract
SES Engineering Services has been chosen to deliver mechanical and electrical (M&E) on student accommodation at Coventry's Godiva Place.
Working alongside main contractor Galliford Try, the £9.2 million deal will see the consultancy design and carry out full M&E services for five residential towers, including lift safety, security, heating, ventilation, drainage and energy efficient lighting and control for end client Regent.
Work on the £47.5 million project, which will transform a brownfield site into a landscaped area with 76 cluster flats and 99 studio apartments for more than 750 Coventry University students, is due to begin on site this month.
Due to the restricted site access, SES’ dedicated offsite manufacturing facility, Prism, will be a key part of the project delivery, with a proposed saving of 14,000 working man hours on site. The Prism solution will also bring additional benefits to the project including improved health and safety, improved quality, as well as improved programme assurance.
David Mason, SES executive business director, said: “As a specialist in both offsite manufacture and the student accommodation sector, we are pleased to be able to bring our skills and expertise to work with Galliford Try on this landmark project in Coventry.
“Coventry is the birthplace of the British motor industry and the historical heart of UK manufacturing with Coventry University internationally recognised as a centre for engineering education excellence. So we’re thrilled to be involved in creating a stunning new home for the university’s students who will be studying hard to continue the city’s proud engineering heritage.“
