SES Engineering secures Edinburgh Gateway M&E contract

Edinburgh Gateway railway station and interchange 1SES Engineering Services has landed a substantial mechanical and electrical (M&E) role on the new Edinburgh Gateway railway station and interchange.

Working alongside main contractor Balfour Beatty, SES will provide full M&E services to the new station, including lighting, heating, ventilation and the Station Information and Surveillance System (SISS).

Located 9km to the west of Edinburgh and 4.8km from Edinburgh International Airport, Edinburgh Gateway is part of the Edinburgh to Glasgow Improvement Programme (EGIP), a major Scottish transport project involving infrastructure improvements and the electrification of most railway lines between Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Edinburgh Gateway railway station and interchange 2Colin Walker, regional director for Scotland at SES, said: “We are proud to be an integral part of the delivery of this iconic new railway station, which will support the future growth of Scotland’s businesses and communities.

“Having already worked on similar projects at Haymarket and Waverley, our expert teams have extensive experience in the rail sector under their belt and we are well placed to take on this innovative new project.”

Edinburgh Gateway is scheduled to open by December 2016 and will be served by Abellio ScotRail and Edinburgh Trams.

A specialist in offsite manufacture, SES recently became the first mechanical, electrical and public health services contractor (MEP) to achieve BRE Accredited BIM Level 2 Certification, one month ahead of the government’s public sector project compliance deadline.
