National engineering expert SES Engineering Services has won a 5 million mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) contract on Edinburgh Universitys 25m project for the establishment of a world-leading Data Technology Institute.
SES will work closely with chief contractor McLaughlin and Harvey, to provide full M&E services including lighting, heating, ventilation and an underfloor services interface on the pioneering development designed to position Edinburgh as a world leader in data.
Positioned at the heart of the University campus, the 7-storey 9,000 sqm building, will serve as the hub supporting the development of data technologies, data intensive research and data analytics in education across Scotland and worldwide.
Regional director for Scotland at SES, Colin Walker, said: "On a restricted site like this, the use of our off-site Prism facility to deliver ready-made service modules and risers will be critical. Any 'live-site' such as a bustling university campus presents its own challenges and we will be working closely with our project partners and the university to ensure logistical issues are resolved. A key part of this is our time and space-efficient 'just in time" approach to deliveries which ensures the site is kept as clear and safe as possible."
Walker added, "Having already worked on similar projects across the UK, our expert teams have extensive experience in the education sector under their belt and this means we know exactly what Edinburgh University require from the outset. As the UK's very first M&E contractor to achieve the BRE BIM Level 2 Certification the standard required by Government to work on Whitehall-procured projects were proud to be at the forefront of how data is changing the engineering industry. Helping to deliver a world-leading Data Technology Institute is a very exciting and fitting project for us."
