SES picked for M&E at Galliford Try student digs scheme

28 Feb 17 SES Engineering Services has won a £9.2m mechanical and electrical (M&E) contract on a project to build new student accommodation at Coventry University.

It will work alongside main contractor Galliford Try for end client Regents on the Godiva Place development, which will provide accommodation for more than 750 students.

This £47.5m project will transform a brownfield site into a landscaped area with 76 cluster flats and 99 studio apartments for students attending the university.

SES will design and deliver full M&E services for five residential towers, including lift safety, security, heating, ventilation, drainage and energy-efficient lighting and control.

SES was previously Shepherd Engineering Services until it was acquired by Wates in 2015. This is its second project won this month where it will be working alongside Galliford Try (link opens in new tab).

There is restricted site access and so SES’ dedicated offsite manufacturing facility, Prism, is seen as key part of the project delivery. SES said that it should bring a saving of 14,000 working man-hours on site as well as additional benefits including improved health and safety, improved quality, as well as improved programme assurance. 

Work is due to begin on site this month.
