The investment will provide the University with a state of the art, sustainable energy solution that can support its energy, emission and environmental targets and provide robust power and heating solutions across its estate.
The project will be undertaken by the MUS district heating team and will include the construction and commissioning of an extension to the University’s existing district heating network, as well as its steam mains. The programme of works will include all civils and mechanical installation, as well as connections to both new and existing faculty buildings. Work is scheduled for completion in June 2019.
Diana Hampson, director of estates and facilities at The University of Manchester, said: “This is a key infrastructure project for The University of Manchester and we are pleased to have appointed Morrison Utility Services to deliver the contract for us.
“We look forward to the delivery of this next stage, which will play an important role in our Campus Masterplan creating world-class facilities for staff, students and visitors.”
Morrison Utility Services executive director Mike Harrison commented: “Our presence in the district heating market continues to grow and we are delighted to have been appointed as the principal contractor on this complex and demanding infrastructure project. This is an important investment that will provide a reliable and secure low-carbon energy solution and embed sustainability within the University’s estate. Meticulous planning will be essential and our project team will work closely with a number of the University’s faculties to ensure disruption to students and staff is kept to a minimum.”
