SES Engineering Services delivers £25m of complex smart technologies to create Helical’s most sustainable building

33 Charterhouse Street installation.

SES Engineering Services (SES), has completed £25m worth of engineering services at The JJ Mack Building, commercial developer Helical’s flagship scheme for sustainability.

Working closely and collaboratively with Principal Contractor Mace, SES has delivered full mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) services for the 200,450 sq ft, ten-storey block in the heart of Farringdon, London – originally referred to as 33 Charterhouse Street. This includes a Category A office fit-out with the latest in integrated building services to make the building ‘smart’ and ultimately, more energy efficient.

Smart technology includes making variables like heating, lighting, and security accessible on one network, giving the end user real-time updates of usage, and allowing them to control the entire building using just one platform.

It has been designed with sustainability as a priority from its conception, to support the developer’s ambitions of having all new build Net Zero Carbon in operation by 2025.

The scheme prioritises end-user operations. SES worked closely with all delivery partners and stakeholders to ensure all services were integrated correctly, while an extensive digital twin model was used to ensure seamless assimilation.

Offsite construction was vital to construction with the company’s bespoke offsite manufacturing facility, PRISM being utilised to help design, build and deliver pumps skids, floor service modules, duct work riser modules and the largest and most complex mechanical risers that the facility has built to date.
