SES wins Manchester Circle Square MEP contract
SES Engineering Services has won a multi-million pound contract to provide Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP) services for student accommodation at Manchester’s new Circle Square.
Appointed by main contractor Wates Construction and developer Select Property Group, the national engineering specialist will deliver all MEP services for the 716 apartments on the development.
The build will form part of the transformative £750m mixed-use Circle Square development on the site of the former BBC headquarters on Oxford Road.
Once complete, the scheme - which will operate under Select’s award-winning Vita Student brand - will offer office, retail, serviced apartments and private residential accommodation as well as communal spaces that will be open to members of the public.
SES is currently working with Select Property Group on the Vita Student Village in York to deliver 517 apartments on the first purpose-built private campus in the UK and they have also completed the Vita Student, Westgate residence, to deliver 264 ‘high quality’ apartments in the centre of Newcastle.
Robert Doherty, SES regional director, North West says his team is proud to be working on this prestigious flagship site in Manchester.
“Circle Square is already a famous development site in Manchester due to its unique offer and superb location.
“The timeframe and logistical challenges on this stand-out development require skill, efficiency and flair so it’s an honour to have been singled out.
“Our team has a fantastic track record in the North West and we are extremely proud to be part of this major project to deliver brand new outstanding accommodation facilities fit to inspire the city’s future generations of students.”
