Wates-owned SES Engineering Services has secured a £43m contract on the £300m Defence and National Rehabilitation Centre at the Stanford Hall estate, near Loughborough.

Working alongside main contractor Interserve, SES is providing full mechanical and electrical services to deliver a purpose-built clinical facility for the Armed Forces when it becomes operational in 2018.

The project, for BS Stanford, involves building a new 380,000 sq ft specialist clinical facility together with the alteration and refurbishment of the Grade II listed Stanford Hall.

David Mason, executive business director, SES said: “We have delivered numerous projects with Interserve over many years and have formed an inclusive and collaborative working relationship with them to ensure the delivery of a truly world-class facility.

“The project involves highly complex site logistics, based around the refurbishment of the grade 2* listed Stanford Hall with over 20 separate new builds in close proximity and up to 1,000 workers on site at any given time.”

SES is also working with the Career Transition Partnership, which helps to resettle ex-military personnel into new employment roles, to provide employment opportunities to former servicemen and women during the project.
