Construction News Image
REL Building Services has landed a contract to deliver M&E works on a new £34 million teaching block at Richmond upon Thames College (RuTC) in Twickenham.

The five storey-development, led by ISG, spans around 161,000 sq ft and will include business incubation space, a 160-seat theatre, art gallery, restaurant, spa and wellness centre as well as advanced learning environments, featuring TV studios, a 3D prototyping fabrication laboratory and a digital golf studio.

When complete, it will accommodate 3,000 students.

Toby Buckley, managing director of REL said: "This is a flagship building for RuTC which requires a vast range of building services that have to drive efficiencies, not only in terms of cost but environmental performance.

"Our early engagement in the scheme, including extensive BIM modelling, was crucial as it enabled us to work closely with the project team to design an M&E solution which could meet all aspects of the brief.

"Being an ISG supply chain partner we have worked on several other large prestigious projects, we're delighted to be working with the team again to deliver this high-profile, state-of-the-art scheme."

This scheme was awarded via the Pagabo framework, which drives efficiencies and best value across public sector procurement. 

Richard White – Project Director at ISG added: "REL has forged a strong reputation for the design and installation of building services for the education sector. Their input and technical expertise throughout the pre-construction stage has resulted in an M&E solution which will deliver significant benefits to the project."

The new learning environment will open in early 2020.
