SES Engineering Services (SES) has been awarded a £42m contract with Sir Robert McAlpine for a mixed-use build to rent scheme in Leeds
SES has been appointed to provide mechanical, electrical and plumbing design and installation services on Mustard Wharf. The build to rent scheme is currently under construction for developer, Legal and General.
Designed by Leeds-based architect, Enjoy Design, the 8,640 sq m build to rent scheme will be located at Granary Wharf. The area is an established retail, leisure and residential area in the city.
It will create 247 one, two and three-bedroom apartments with communal areas, a gym and covered parking spaces. In addition to the apartments, the development will also feature retail and leisure units at ground floor level.
To overcome the challenges associated with working closely to an established residential and commercial area, SES will work to its tried and tested ‘room in a box’ strategy whilst utilising Prism.
Prism is the company’s offsite manufacturing facility to prefabricate plant room equipment and a portion of the building services, ahead of arrival on site.
This approach will also have a positive impact on waste reduction and build programming. SES’ role is expected to take 70 weeks to complete.
SES’ business director for North and Scotland, Steve Joyce, said: “SES is well-versed in delivering major residential schemes of this calibre, including both student and build to rent accommodation across Yorkshire and elsewhere in the UK.
“I believe it is this experience that makes us best placed to work hand in hand with Sir Robert McAlpine and the wider design team on the design and construction of Mustard Wharf.
“We pride ourselves on creating energy conscious spaces and delivering innovative building services design and installations that as a minimum, we match but more often exceed, client expectations.”
