Built Environment Consulting (BEC) is celebrating after bowling over the competition to win a £3.2m construction value contract for the mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) work for Derbyshire County Cricket Club’s new Media Centre.
BEC has been chosen by the Club to provide the building services design to RIBA Stage 3.
The firm has been retained Client side to undertake Client side duties such as checking on contractor’s proposals, site inspection and witness testing on the brand new four-story Media Centre.
This is the second phase of development at the cricket ground following the redevelopment of the 3aaa Pavilion and Elite Performance Centre, a project that BEC successfully won through a tender process two years ago and completed in 2015.
Carl Ackers, Director at Built Environment Consulting, said: “We are delighted to be involved in such a landmark development, not only for the club but also for the city, as it has helped the club achieve their ambition to be a host city for the 2017 ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup.“
The overall development will include the Media Centre, an extended Conference, Events and Business Centre and upgraded facilities for Members, spectators and players, in a project that the club hopes will develop a venue capable of hosting international cricket, concerts and community events.
Carl added: “Both phases of the development have been successful and we are looking forward to finishing the Media Centre in July.
“As an 1870 Business Club partner at Derbyshire County Cricket Club, we are delighted that the new facilities should help take the club to the next level.“
