SES wins £23m South London hospital MEP package
SES Engineering Services is set to save 8,000 labour hours by using offsite to deliver £23m of works at the Springfield Hospital redevelopment in Tooting, South London.
Working alongside main contractor Sir Robert McAlpine, SES will provide all mechanical, electrical and plumbing works for a mental health centre set across two new buildings.
Targeted towards a BREEAM rating of ‘Excellent’, the builds will be delivered next to Springfield Hospital’s existing Grade II listed main site on Glenburnie Rd.
SES will use its offsite manufacturing facility, Prism to deliver a significant part of the works for the BIM level 2 project, including 150 corridor and riser modules bringing big labour savings.
The new hospital project is part of a wider regeneration of the former Springfield University Hospital site that will also include the development of more than 800 new homes, a 32 acre park and a new primary school, all of which is set to be delivered by 2024.
Other consultants on the project include architects CF Moller, Arup and EA-RS.
Steve Joyce, SES’ managing director, said: “The building has to be delivered by the end of next year so we had to consider any staffing or material issues that could arise due to the potential challenges of Covid and Brexit, so introducing as much offsite as possible allowed us to really challenge and protect the programme.”
