NG Bailey has been awarded a contract worth £12.5m to provide the mechanical and electrical services for an undergraduate teaching facility at the University of Sheffield’s Faculty of Engineering.
The independent engineering, IT and facilities services business will help develop the landmark building on the university’s Jessop East site.
The six-storey facility will include lecture theatres, laboratories and various flexible teaching rooms.
Working alongside main contractor Balfour Beatty, NG Bailey will be responsible for all M&E services, including ventilation and cooling systems, offsite-manufactured risers and pipework skid modules within the plant rooms.
NG Bailey’s Engineering division joint managing director Mike Darlington said: “It will be a brilliant new facility for the university and will support the increasing demand from students for engineering places.
“Sheffield has a great reputation for its engineering courses, and the new building will really enhance the teaching and learning environment.
“Our proactive design approach and our ability to integrate the latest technology and materials into the scheme will ensure the whole-life cost of plant and equipment is reduced.
”It’s also really fantastic to be involved in a project that will help young talent realise their dreams in the world of engineering – fresh talent that our industry so desperately needs.”
