NG Bailey has won a £15 million contract to provide M&E and IT services to Birmingham City University’s new Institute of Art and Design.
Working alongside main contractor Willmott Dixon, NG Bailey will provide a full M&E package to the new 18,000m2 building, along with an extensive IT package, which will be completed by the company’s specialist IT Services division.
The project will use Building Information Modelling (BIM) from concept to completion - employing three-dimensional, real-time building modelling software which produces data aimed at increasing productivity in the design and construction stages of a project.
Steve Briggs, managing director for NG Bailey’s engineering south division, said: “This is a fantastic win for the company as it demonstrates that we provide a truly integrated service.
“We hope to use this build as an example to the industry of how BIM can improve the efficiency and accuracy of a project and how it should be a standard element of the construction process.”
NG Bailey commences work onsite in May 2012 and completion is expected in September 2013.
