Main contractor Interserve has handed SES Engineering Services a £43m mechanical & electrical subcontract on the new £300m Defence & National Rehabilitation Centre (DNRC).
The new clinical facility is being built for the armed forces at the Stanford Hall estate near Loughborough.
The DNRC will be operated by the Ministry of Defence and is scheduled to open in 2018.
SES director David Mason said: “We have delivered numerous projects with Interserve over many years and have formed an inclusive and collaborative working relationship with them to ensure the delivery of a truly world-class facility.
“The project involves highly complex site logistics, based around the refurbishment of the Grade II* listed Stanford Hall with over 20 separate new builds in close proximity and up to 1,000 workers on site at any given time. It also lies in registered parkland where there are numerous restrictions and planning conditions that must be adhered to. All of this requires a managed and considerate approach to the installation of new M&E services.
“By using our market-leading off-site manufacturing facilities at SES PRISM extensively on this project, we are able to move as much activity off site as possible meaning that we can make significant time and cost savings as well as create a much safer working environment.”
SES is also working with the Career Transition Partnership, which helps to resettle ex-military personnel into new employment roles, to provide employment opportunities to former servicemen and women during the project.
