Located 9km to the west of Edinburgh and 4.8km from Edinburgh International Airport, Edinburgh Gateway is part of the Edinburgh to Glasgow Improvement Programme (EGIP), a major Scottish transport project involving infrastructure improvements and the electrification of most railway lines between Glasgow and Edinburgh.
SES Engineering Services, appointed by main contractor Balfour Beatty provided full M&E services to the newly completed Edinburgh station, including lighting, heating, ventilation and the Station Information and Surveillance System (SISS) along with a fully lit pedestrian underpass tunnel between the station and the nearby Gyle shopping centre, SES also provided electrical services for a new tram stop for Edinburgh Trams.
Steve Joyce, Business Director North and Scotland, SES said:
“We are proud to have played an integral part in the delivery of this iconic new railway station, which will support the future growth of Scotland’s businesses and communities.
“Having already delivered similar projects at Haymarket and Waverley, our teams have demonstrated SES has extensive experience in the infrastructure sector under their belt.”
