SES wins £15m deal under Miller PFI venture

Building engineer SES has been awarded a £15 million contract from Miller Construction for four new build facilities for Avon and Somerset Police.

Blue Light Partnership, a PFI consortium led by Bilfinger Berger Project Investments, Miller Construction andCofely FM, was awarded a £116m Avon & Somerset Police PFI deal in January.

The Shepherd Group subsidiary has been appointed to provide associated mechanical, electrical and public health engineering services on a multi-site project for Avon and Somerset Police.

The project brief comprises construction of four new build facilities in Bridgwater, Patchway, Keynsham and Portishead.  

Three of the buildings will incorporate custody facilities along with supporting investigative functions and administrative services. The Bridgwater facility will create an operational base, housing some 550 officers and police staff.

A fourth facility which is to be built in a disused aggregate quarry, will house a tri-force indoor firearms training facility which will contain staff offices, tactical training facilities, class rooms and other related services.

SES managing director, Peter G Lewis said: “Having developed what I consider to be a robust work winning strategy, we continue to enjoy sustainable growth across all our regional offices and it is extremely pleasing to be able to announce such a significant contract win for the South West office.

“We look forward to working closely with Miller Construction and our project partners on the scheme which will see our teams working across the four sites throughout 2013 into early 2014.”

SES expects to commence work on the first building in late January of next year.
