April 23 2018

Kershaw Mechanical Services have scooped another contract within the educational sector in the form of the mechanical and electrical works for “Building 60” for the University of East Anglia (UEA). 

Awarded the project by lead contractors R G Carter, the development, which includes a state-of-the-art teaching and learning space, will provide a comprehensive range of lecture and seminar rooms for students across all disciplines.

Following the work that was undertaken during the design process, by JSH Consulting and the UEA, Kershaw Mechanical Services collaborated with them on the final design and will be responsible for the mechanical and electrical installation for the new building.

As part of the project, the existing district heating main, which was installed by Kershaw Mechanical Services during the construction of the Thomas Paine Study Centre, is being extended to Building 60, enabling the future connection of other buildings along the route to the system and take advantage of a highly efficient and sustainable source of heating and hot water.

Designed by FBMArchitects, Building 60, which is based on Chancellors Drive, will provide a key teaching and learning space to support the growing numbers of students. With general teaching spaces and labs in the same building, it will encourage cross-departmental integration and knowledge-share.

Ian Greenstock, Sales and Estimating Director, Kershaw Mechanical Services “We are delighted to have been awarded the mechanical and electrical works for Building 60.” He continued “We have an ever-growing portfolio of education projects, enabling us to draw on our experience and knowledge, to enable the smooth running of the project.”

Work on Building 60 is due to start early Q1 of 2018 and span over a 70 week period.
