It’s a winning conversion for the contractor as building work completes on the home of rugby’s new South Stand

SES has been responsible for the design, supply, installation and testing of all m&e services at Twickenham Stadium’s new South Stand.

This includes three new gas boilers, 34 air-handling units, eight cold-water storage tanks and a Trend BMS control system to the new plant – one of 21 plant rooms in the new stand.

SES project manager Paul Todd says: “ I am a rugby fan, and working at the home of English rugby can only be described as an idyllic place to work. Being on the top tier of the new South Stand looking down on the pitch, you can imagine the 82 000- strong crowd roar when England take to the field against their rivals.”

But, with feet back on solid ground, what challenges have Paul and his team had to face? “We thought the main challenge was going to be co-ordinating with the other main contractors, who each have their own subcontractors, on site.

“But communication has been a key part of this project. We’ve held regular progress meetings with other trade contractors, together with monthly project meetings with the client. This has definitely helped to keep the job on schedule and on budget.”
