SES Engineering Services (SES) is set to deliver £23m of works at the Springfield Hospital redevelopment in Tooting, South London.

The hospital project is being carried out as part of a regeneration of the former Springfield University Hospital site.

As part of the redevelopment, the company will provide all mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) works for a mental health centre set across two new buildings, in collaboration with main contractor Sir Robert McAlpine.

This will include ventilation and heating systems, VRF cooling and domestic services.

Other works are related to specialist electrical systems including nurse call alarms, security, a large image data package and car charging points.

The buildings, which are planned to be delivered next to Springfield Hospital’s existing Grade II listed main site on Glenburnie Rd, are targeted towards a BREEAM rating of ‘Excellent’.

Main hospital reception, various wards, outpatient departments and training facilities are part of the new three-storey non-forensic building. The neighbouring building will have four secure wards and a facility management workshop.

To deliver a significant portion of the works for the BIM level 2 project, SES will use its offsite manufacturing facility, Prism. The works will include 150 corridor and riser modules.

As part of the regeneration, more than 800 new homes, a 32-acre park and a new primary school will also be developed. All of them are expected to be delivered by 2024.

Architect CF Moller, Arup and EA-RS are the other consultants working on the project.

Construction work of the project is slated for completion at the end of this year.

SES Engineering Services managing director Steve Joyce said: “The building has to be delivered by the end of next year so we had to consider any staffing or material issues that could arise due to the potential challenges of Covid and Brexit, so introducing as much offsite as possible allowed us to really challenge and protect the programme.”
