NG Bailey’s Engineering division has won a contract to install mechanical and electrical services at Sheffield University’s new AMRC Training Centre.
Working alongside main contractor, Willmott Dixon, NG Bailey will design and install mechanical and electrical services to the building, currently under construction on the Advanced Manufacturing Park at Catcliffe
Installation work includes an electrically-driven heating and cooling system to maximise the use of the wind turbine which powers the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre itself and its sister Nuclear AMRC.
NG Bailey’s IT Services division has also won a contract to install the telecommunications cabling in the building
Engineering division joint managing director, Mike Darlington, said: “This is an exciting and challenging project and one which allows us to demonstrate our skills and expertise in building services.
“Our ability to work collaboratively and provide a wide range of services, sets us apart from the rest and makes us the ideal provider for jobs of this nature.
“We are thrilled to have been awarded this contract and look forward to working with Willmott Dixon and the University of Sheffield.”
The building is due to be completed in December, after which it will provide training from apprenticeship through to doctorate and MBA level in the skills that manufacturing companies need to compete globally.
Rolls-Royce says it is close to completing work on the Advanced Blade Casting Facility it is building on the Advanced Manufacturing Park in Rotherham. The 150,000 sq ft factory will be the most advanced blade casting facility in the world.
