SES Engineering Services delivered full M&E services across the development’s five residential blocks including heating, ventilation, domestic water services, drainage, electrical systems, fire safety, security and energy-efficient lighting and heating controls.
The £47.5m project has made use of a brownfield site near Lower Ford Street, to create 76 cluster flats and 99 studio apartments across five multi-storey blocks. Construction began in October 2016 with SES working alongside main contractor Galliford Try.
SES’ market-leading digital engineering expertise was fundamental to delivering this BIM Level 2 project successfully using the latest Building Information Modelling (BIM) technology.
Offsite products were delivered via SES’ dedicated offsite manufacturing facility, Prism and also via the supply chain. These products played a vital role in maintaining programme and involved manufacturing 925 2D pipe modules and six major plant skids for the project.
“Utilising offsite manufacturing techniques lends itself perfectly to time-sensitive builds in education, and increasing our order book with these schemes forms a key part of our business strategy.
“Godiva Place is a significant development – not just for the university, but for the city of Coventry – and we’re proud to have contributed to its build. The quality of the finished scheme is a credit to the skills and expertise of our team and we look forward to the students of Coventry enjoying the benefits of this accommodation.”
