The business, which recently completed its multi-million pound Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP) project on the iconic Queensferry Crossing, has established itself as a key provider of on-site innovation, offsite manufacturing and digital engineering north of the Border.
Established in 1961, SES has a track record of delivering critical and innovative M&E projects right across the UK. The business first established a Scottish base of operations in Glasgow seven years ago recognising the scale, importance and complexity of projects across the border.
SES continues to expand its portfolio of stand-out projects, and recently provided full M&E services on the University of Edinburgh’s £25 million project to establish a world-leading Data Technology Institute as well as on the multi-million pound Edinburgh Gateway railway station and interchange.
Last month, SES and its specialist prefabrication and offsite manufacturing facility, Prism was shortlisted in the prestigious Construction News Specialist Awards Project of the Year category, in recognition of its innovative work on the standout £1.35 billion Queensferry Crossing. The replacement road bridge over the Firth of Forth is Scotland’s largest infrastructure investment in a generation.
The shortlisting is testament to the company’s reputation for delivering innovative, cost and time saving offsite manufacturing and Building Information Modelling (BIM) solutions to UK critical projects.
Colin Walker, business director Scotland, said: “The opening of our Edinburgh office is built on the strong foundation of the work we have completed and have secured with our partners across the whole of Scotland.
“This new office brings even more opportunities for our people, and the communities in which we work.
“Supplementing our Glasgow team base with our new Edinburgh office, represents our ongoing commitment to Scotland, our success here has been made possible by the ever-increasing number of exciting projects bringing critical investment into the country.
“We continue to provide time and cost-saving innovative solutions on and off site, across Scotland’s most outstanding infrastructure, education and science & research projects. In line with SES’ national growth strategy, we’re looking ahead to another outstanding seven years.”
