Wates M&E arm bags £30m-plus London double



Wates-owned SES Engineering Services has picked up the mechanical, electrical and plumbing packages on two big London projects worth together more than £30m.

The dual wins represent a major milestone for the firm’s London and south east operations and will see extensive use of off-site manufacturing to win cost and time savings.

SES has been appointed to deliver mechanical, electrical and plumbing services on the 12-storey office building for Google as part of the King’s Cross regeneration as well as being awarded an £18.6m MEP contract to deliver Barts Square Phase One, a £110m luxury residential development in the St Bart’s Hospital area in Farringdon.

SES will continue its long-standing relationship with client Argent and main contractor Carillion on the commercial King’s Cross project – and will be working with Carillion and client Helical Plc for the first time to deliver 144 apartments with a selection of one, two and three-bedroom apartments and penthouses located in seven property blocks.

Tim Cunningham, SES London and south east director said: “This is a truly exciting time for our London and South East operation and the growth of our business is down to our teams’ exemplary work and innovative off-site approach.”

SES was the first M&E contractor to achieve the BRE BIM Level 2 Certification – required by Government to work on Whitehall-procured projects from April.

Multiplex tipped for offices on £750m Galliard Shoreditch scheme



Multiplex is understood to be in line to take a key construction job on the major mixed-use development called the Stage in East London, which is to built above the remains of a Shakespearean theatre.

Galliard Homes, part of the developer joint venture behind the £750m development in Shoreditch, is expected to deliver a 37-floor residential tower on the scheme.

It is also delivering site-wide enabling works. But the Enquirer understands that Multiplex is now likely to take the 250,000 sq ft major office element on the project after a procurement rethink.

A source told the Enquirer: “Galliard have been delivering the preconstruction work and now the word is Multiplex are set to take the commercial side.”

Multiplex is presently working on the neighbouring Principal Place project where it has just completed the office element and has now moved on to the second-phase residential tower.

Sellar submits new plan for £775m Paddington Cube

Developer Irvine Sellar has submitted revised plans for his new £775m Paddington Quarter scheme in West London.

The 14-storey cube-shaped office building replaces earlier plans for a landmark 72-storey residential tower, nicknamed the ‘Paddington Pole’, which was abandoned after running into fierce opposition.

Great Western Developments and development partner Sellar Paddington submitted the revised plans yesterday for the former Royal Mail sorting and post office site adjacent to Paddington Station.

It is now hoped Westminster City Council will approve the proposals in December.

Designed by Renzo Piano Building Workshop, the 360,000 sq ft Paddington Cube would sit 12m above 1.35 acres of newly created public realm.

Irvine Sellar, Chairman of SPL, said: “We are pleased to submit our revised plans for Paddington after months of public consultation. RPBW is a world-class architect and the design provides a commercially viable building that will deliver real change for the area.

“Paddington serves as an international gateway to London and our scheme provides both an elegant building and much needed new public space that will become a destination in its own right. ”

The Paddington Quarter development will accommodate more than 4,000 new jobs for Paddington and include 80,000 sq ft of retail and restaurant space over five levels, including a rooftop restaurant.

I remember a year or so ago there was a building being proposed that looked literally like a turd, it might even have got planning permission i can't quite remember. Does anyone know the current status of it?
