NG Bailey secures library contract

NG Bailey has secured a £9.2m mechanical & electrical (M&E) contract as part of £42m Birmingham Uni New Library redevelopment

Working collaboratively with main contractor, Carillion, the company’s engineering division’s M&E offering will include the installation and new build design of the library, which will cover six storeys over a 16,000 sqm floor area. 

The project – which is due for completion in September 2016 – will also provide the University with a gallery space in which they can showcase research outcomes to the local community. The building is being designed in such a way that it will provide a more efficient use of space, energy and resource for staff, students and researchers. 

Mike Darlington, managing director for NG Bailey’s Engineering division, said: “This is a great win for us and demonstrates the strength of our offering. We have over 40 years’ experience working in Birmingham, so this is testament to our long-term success in the midlands region. 

“We carried out all the building modelling and as a result, were able to understand, influence and control the design parameters, helping to provide a more intelligent building.” 

Students will benefit from a variety of learning spaces and flexible, technology-rich training rooms where they can receive academic skills support offered by library services staff.
