NG Bailey clinch £4.5m deal in scheme to boost Reading’s bid for “‘city status”

Yorkshire-based NG Bailey’s Engineering division has secured a £4.5m mechanical and electrical (M&E) installation contract as part of the £25m Chatham Place development in Reading.

Working alongside main contractor, Galliford Try, NG Bailey will deliver 178,200 sq. ft. of residential and retail floor space across the nine and 19 storey constructions.

This is phase two of the contract with completion due in spring 2015.

Chatham Place is a £100m mixed-use scheme from Muse Developments.

The project, in partnership with Reading Borough Council, is at the western end of Reading town centre. It will link the high street to the west of the town centre and the regeneration is a major part of the Reading City 2020 vision.

By the year 2020, Reading plans to be established as a City, the capital of the Thames Valley and a gateway between Europe and the United Kingdom.

It will provide the highest quality range of shops, leisure, educational, cultural and sporting facilities for all its residents, businesses and visitors.

Mike Darlington, managing director of the Engineering division, said:

“This is a great win for us and demonstrates the strength of our offering.

“We have a long standing working relationship with Galliford Try and we are delighted to be delivering services that will further strengthen that relationship.

“Our success comes from adopting a collaborative approach during the tender period and helping engineer an innovative solution for the client.”
