SES will start work this summer alongside main contractor Mace to provide full mechanical, electrical and plumbing services at the 200,000 sq ft 10-storey block in the heart of Farringdon.
It will involve a Category A office fit-out, with integrated building services to make the building ‘smart’ and more energy efficient.
Offsite technology is playing a large part in the work with components built and tested at its offsite manufacturing centre, Prism, while an extensive digital twin model has also been created to ensure seamless assimilation.
Steve Joyce, SES managing director, said: “Regardless of the challenges thrown at the commercial sector this year, the future of office developments is moving towards a more digital, integrated and sustainable approach and 33 Charterhouse Street will be a fantastic example of this shift.
“We’ve worked with Helical before and their forward-thinking approach matches our own. The client has tasked us, as well as the rest of its delivery partners, with supporting an ambitious, but necessary goal in regard to becoming carbon neutral, and we’re proud to support them in achieving it.
“Integrating so many building systems is an incredibly complex task and early collaboration between ourselves and all stakeholders is vital, as well as the ability to manufacture a large amount offsite.
“This will save an estimated 14,669 labour hours on site – helping improve efficiency at its central London location, and support arrangements to reduce personnel on site wherever possible in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.”
