NG Bailey, HE Simm, SES Engineering Services and Briggs & Forrester will work collaboratively to deliver a £100m package of works.
St. John’s is Manchester’s newest city centre neighbourhood comprising of commercial, leisure and residential spaces.
Piling and basement excavation works are presently underway for major elements of the site including the Manchester Goods Yard and tower 1 of the Nickle and Dime twin 36-storey build to rent towers.
The MEP framework contractors are being engaged early to drive value into the vast project.
Together they will plan out and agree common installation methods, a collective approach to BIM and design.
The first project that forms part of the MEP framework will commence over the coming months.
Paul Briars, regional director North West at NG Bailey, said: “We have a strong portfolio of Manchester-based projects and we look forward to building on our extensive experience, integrating our offsite manufacture capabilities, as well as offering a true end-to-end solution through the inclusion of our services division.”
Tony Hulbert, regional preconstruction manager at Briggs & Forrester Group said: “We are proud to work alongside our fellow MEP providers to deliver these essential services to the ambitious scheme over the next 4 to 5 years.”
Greg Simm, operations director at HE Simm, said: “Our focus will lie on providing MEP services for both commercial and residential elements within the scheme, which will include the Nickel & Dime residential towers.”
Glen Hardman, North West operations director at SES Engineering Services, said: “Being involved in such a project also presents an opportunity for SES to demonstrate its BIM Level 2 and offsite manufacturing expertise to great effect, as well as working in collaboration with the other appointed framework partners to support the local community and skills training initiatives this scheme can offer.”
