Shepherd Engineering using BIM on 2 major new contracts

Shepherd Engineering Services (SES) have won two major contracts, with their excellent Building Information Modelling portfolio playing a large role in their successful bids.

Worth a combined £13m, SES will carry out mechanical and electrical services on Newcastle’s Stephenson Quarter and will also carry out similar work in the Consett Academy and Leisure Centre, reports Specification Online.


SES’ integrated BIM team will deliver an array of “innovative off-site solutions” which will reduce time on-site and building and labour costs whilst also ensuring the working environment is a safer one.


In regards to the Stephenson Quarter project, SES’ North East Regional Director Steve Joyce said: “The co-ordination of the M&E services, such as the installation of tight bedroom risers, is extremely complex so we’re involving our industry leading BIM experts on the hotel to overcome these problems and the associated challenges linked to working within a confined and densely populated city-centre space. Having an experienced BIM expert within the team helped us to foresee any potential challenges we would need to contend with and our approach has been tailored accordingly.”


Carillion, who are the main contractor to the Consett Academy and Leisure Centre project also commented on their new partnership with SES. Project Manager Michael Rutherford stated: “On such complex projects, it is absolutely critical that we work with solutions-driven partners who have the expertise and experience to deliver on-time and on-budget. The holistic approach offered by SES, combined with its pioneering use of BIM, made SES the natural choice, and because they understand our needs entirely, they are able to offer an enviably seamless and inclusive working partnership.”
