Work is continuing well at the site of the new Council offices in Northampton. The installation of the high level modules is complete; these modules include LTHW, CHW and domestic pipework as well as electrical containment. The low level modules will be installed shortly. It was a sunny day when the trench heating and cooling units were delivered recently so they will start to be installed shortly too. Activity on every floor, from the roof to the basement!
Congrats to the Consultants team at the recent Cambridge Construction Industry Charity Rugby match. Unfortunately Stephen Green from Briggs and Forrester Engineering Services was on the losing Contractors team, but as he said afterwards, “It was a good day with some good rugby, supporting a great cause – and we enjoyed a few post-match beers too!” The event raised over £5,000 for Alzheimer’s Research UK, so well done everyone who supported.
Briggs & Forrester has been selected as principal contractor by The Almac Group for the development of their analytical testing and formulation development facilities at Charnwood Campus, a world-class science and technology enterprise park in Loughborough.
Councillor Jim Harker, leader of Northamptonshire County Council, marked a significant stage in the construction of the council’s new Northampton HQ yesterday, with the ‘topping out’ of the Project Angel building. He was one of around 40 dignitaries and guests invited to tour the site.
Briggs and Forrester is designing and delivering the installation of the mechanical and electrical systems, working together on the project with Galliford Try.
Competitive spirits refused to be dampened by some wild weather yesterday at Catton Hall for a Clay Pigeon Shooting event, organised by Briggs and Forrester’s Warrington office.
The shoot was an ideal opportunity for our Northern team to build and develop relationships with our invited guests from Beijing Construction Engineering Group, Interserve, Gleeds, Bouygues UK, Graham Construction, Balfour Beatty, DSSR and FHP.
There’s a lot happening at the new bioscience facility in the centre of Nottingham. We’ve been on site since mid-March and first fix M&E services, including multiservice modules within the corridors, are being installed. All primary plant for the heating and domestic services is installed, the LV panel has been positioned and tested and the pipework installation within the plantroom is currently ongoing. We’re working with Willmott Dixon to create this new space for science.
Briggs and Forrester is supporting the Cambridge Construction Industry Charity Rugby match on Friday 29th April. The teams are made up of representatives from a variety of different businesses across the local area, predominantly in construction. Our own Stephen Green from Engineering Services will be playing at outside centre so we wish him the best of luck!
All funds will go to Alzheimer’s Research UK - plus there’s a fantastic raffle with some great prizes. Gates open at CURUFC, Grange Road, Cambridge at 2.30 with kick-off at 3pm.
Briggs and Forrester was presented with the Outstanding Contribution to the Industry Award at the H&V News Awards in London recently. More than 1,100 attendees from across the HVAC and building services industry attended.

Works are progressing well on our project with Seddon at the new Rocester School in Staffordshire. We’ve been onsite for about four weeks and ductwork and sprinkler works are currently being installed, and the electrical contractor has commenced on site working along the ground floor corridor. As you can see from the photo the external plant room is coming along nicely too!
