Leading national engineering specialist, SES Engineering Services, has scooped a major prize at the 2016 Offsite Awards, recognising its outstanding use of mechanical and electrical (M&E) pre-fabrication on a pivotal Leeds regeneration scheme.
More than 200 leaders and innovators gathered to celebrate offsite construction at the NEC, Birmingham where SES was presented with its Best Use of MEP Prefabrication award on the main stage at UK Construction Week.
Showcasing innovation, celebrating best practice and recognising overall expertise in offsite construction, the awards featured a shortlist of exceptional landmark projects, influential people and material and manufacturing excellence in the dynamic arena that is offsite construction.
SES won the prestigious industry award following its industry-leading engineering work on the project to deliver 5-6 Wellington Place, at the heart of a vibrant, new corporate district in Leeds city centre alongside the River Aire.
The dual Wellington Place commercial developments are critical to a joint public and private sector campaign to herald a prosperous new chapter for the city’s business scene.
Taking on this logistically challenging and time-sensitive project, SES and its specialist offsite pre-fabrication facility SES PRISM delivered a bespoke, market-leading offsite solution while delivering market-changing efficiency savings.
Dave Mason, SES Executive Business Director, commented: “The Offsite Awards celebrate outstanding examples of pre-fabrication and factory-based methods, products, systems, individuals and disciplines that increasingly strive to develop a sustainable, streamlined and cost-effective way to deliver a better built environment.
“This is the kind of recognition that we want, and we should be extremely proud of our achievements, this is an absolute testament to the inspirational and talented people in our business.”
In addition to its MEP award, SES’ Operations Manager for London and South East, Will Newman was highly commended in the Offsite Professional of the Year category for his pioneering work in championing the use of SES’ PRISM pre-fabrication facility based in York on three projects at the heart of the landmark King’s Cross regeneration project in London. The scheme is the largest area in central London to be developed under a single ownership in the past 150 years.
Will’s hands-on commitment to spearheading and pushing for factory-level innovation, his unwavering focus on delivering cost and efficiency savings, complemented by an ability to inspire board level engagement and buy-in to pre-fabrication techniques, truly set Will apart from his peers as an offsite champion.
Awards host, and head of the judging panel, Darren Richards of Cogent Consulting said of the night:
“I have been overwhelmed with the breadth and quality of entries received in the second year of the awards. It is great to see the sector growing so rapidly and to witness so many boundaries being surpassed by these inspiring and innovation projects.
“The depth of expertise across all categories was impressive and the exceptional number of entries is proof of how offsite construction is not just for one off niche developments. The entries clearly demonstrate the upturn in the industry and the Offsite Construction Awards are now regarded as a highlight of the annual construction events calendar.”
