Engineering specialist SES Engineering Services' (SES) has been awarded another contract in the student accommodation sector.

The company will work on behalf of the main contractor and part investor, GARAHM, with SES appointed to provide a full range of MEP design and installation services on 730 student bedrooms at the University of York's £130m Heslington East Campus.

The accommodation is currently under construction and is located on the North side of the campus. The project forms part of a wider investment the university is making across the whole campus as it looks to increase the volume of student accommodation on offer.

SES has already installed services for 8,000 student beds over the last six years, with the latest project marking the second time the two contractors have worked together.

Steve Joyce, SES' business director North and Scotland, said: "We are delighted to have the opportunity to build on our previous success with GRAHAM and to be working on such a key accommodation scheme for the university."

"SES has a proven track record in the sector with over 8,000 student bedrooms delivered to date by offices in the North."

"We look forward to supporting the university as it continues to develop the Heslington East Campus."
