A £5m contract for the mechanical and electrical (M&E) services at Kirklees Council’s new flagship leisure centre in Huddersfield has been awarded to NG Bailey’s Engineering division.
The new multi-million pound leisure centre – which will be owned by Kirklees Council and managed by Kirklees Active Leisure – opens to the public in 2015 and will include a 25-metre, eight lane swimming pool, as well as a large sports hall and an air-conditioned fitness suite with 120 fitness stations.
Working for main contractor BAM Construction, Ilkley-based NG Bailey will install all low-voltage (LV) distribution, lighting, security systems, water services and cooling systems.
NG Bailey’s Offsite Manufacture division is creating corridor service modules, while its IT Services division will provide voice and data solutions, as well as a full security system.
Due to the corrosive environment from chlorine in the wet areas, NG Bailey has had to carefully consider suitable plant, equipment & fixing selection.
Mike Darlington, joint managing director of NG Bailey’s Engineering division, said:
“We’re delighted to have been awarded this contract and our unified approach means our divisions can work together seamlessly to drive efficiency and provide integrated solutions that deliver real value.
“Our truly integrated approach sets us apart from our competitors and makes us the obvious choice for a job of this nature.”
