Balfour Beatty Engineering Services (BBES) has been awarded two schools contracts within the Oldham Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme, valued at £10.5m.

The services comprise CHP systems, natural and mechanical ventilation systems, domestic hot and cold water systems, above ground drainage systems, a fully interactive BMS system, modular wiring systems, fire alarm, security and access control systems.

Bespoke multi-service modules to suit the buildings steel frame structure have been designed with preformed openings to enable M&E services to be routed through. Project teams were involved in early design reviews to enable innovation to be driven out at an early stage of the design, with any health, safety and environmental issues addressed at design stage.

Sustainable aspects to the project include rainwater harvesting systems and an interactive BMS system capable of lighting system zonal control. The schools are also fully energy metered via the BMS, which has the capability to convert consumption to cost and provide out of profile alarms for all systems metered.
