SES installs major plan for Middlesbrough Digital City
As part of SES’s £3.75 building-services contract for two new buildings at the University of Teesside a chiller weighting 3.5 t is craned into position by a specialist 100 t crane. Over two days, the crane hoisted into position four Carrier chillers, four air-handling units and prefabricated modules onto the roofs of the new buildings for the Institute of Digital Imagery and the Centre for Creative Technologies. This work is the first phase in Middlesbrough’s Digital City project. Worth £22 million, it will see the building of an Institute of Digital Innovation and a Centre for Creative Technologies. SES is working with principal contractor HBG to complete the development for the start of the 2007/08 academic year.
