Grant Prior 2 years ago Ameon

Building services engineering specialist Ameon has been awarded the £10m mechanical and electrical contract on the Upperbanks development in Rochdale, Greater Manchester by main contractor Willmott Dixon.

Ameon’s contract will include responsibility for design and installation of all building services infrastructure, serving a development of 242 apartments and a 146-bedroom Hampton by Hilton Hotel.

The apartment development will be the first phase of Ameon’s involvement, although sister company, Ameon Utilities has already completed a separate contract to install utilities infrastructure, in a package worth £800,000.

The utilities contract includes installation of two 800kVA substations for the east and west apartment blocks, a dedicated substation from the 6.6kV network and new mains and services for water, together with a ducted network for BT and Comms.

Ameon’s pre-construction director, Mark Court said: “Having played our part in the regeneration of Manchester city centre over the past decade, we are delighted to be involved in such a significant scheme that will help to shape the landscape of Rochdale town centre for generations to come.

“This is our first contract for Willmott Dixon, and we look forward to collaborating with the company, in conjunction with Rochdale Development Agency on behalf of Rochdale Borough Council, on this landmark regeneration development which will add to the burgeoning town centre amenities.”

Richard Wright, operations manager at Willmott Dixon, said: “The local pride in Rochdale and the level of inward investment being attracted to exciting developments such as
Upperbanks, make it a blueprint for town centre regeneration across the UK.

“We have recently completed the concrete frames to the apartment blocks, with the hotel due to be finished shortly. Works on site now focus on completing the envelope and
commencing the internal fit out of all three buildings.

“We are working with all our supply chain partners to create sustainable employment opportunities and a lasting positive legacy in Rochdale.”
