Engineering firm secures multi-million pound North East regeneration contract win

The North East office of a national engineering specialist has secured a multi-million pound contract for a regeneration scheme in County Durham.

SES Engineering Services has won a deal to deliver mechanical, electrical and plumbing services on Phase One of regeneration scheme Milburngate in Durham city centre, on behalf of developer Tolent.

The 450 sq m landmark scheme currently under development is set to transform a six-acre site on the historic city’s riverside into a mixed-use site, including 60,000 sq ft of retail and leisure space, 5,000 sq m of speculative office accommodation and 153 luxury build-to-rent apartments.

SES’ business director North and Scotland, Steve Joyce, commented: “Durham is an exciting place to work in now with a number of high-profile schemes underway.

“Milburngate is a significant regeneration project for the City and the wider community and I’m delighted that SES will play a key part in Phase One of its delivery.

“Whilst we are currently working on early design and development solutions, I anticipate commencing work on site in August 2020 and very much look forward to working on behalf of Tolent and alongside the wider project team.”

Tolent’s CEO, Andy McLeod added: “It’s always a privilege to be involved in such transformational projects, and the vision for Milburngate is one we’re committed to delivering for our client, the Arlington Richardson Development Partnership and the wider community within Durham City.

“Our appointment, coupled with our choice of SES, a well-respected building services contractor, is testament to the breadth of experience and depth of local resources both companies can demonstrate.”
