Skanska UK’s SRW goes on location with Pinewood Studios contract win

Skanska UK’s engineering services arm is taking to the movie business with its latest contract to carry out fit-out work for new sound stages at Pinewood Studios.

SRW Engineering Services won the contract after competitive tender. It will see the team install primary services and undertake the fit-out of five new, large sound stages for Sir Robert McAlpine, on behalf of Pinewood Studios Group.

The contract, due to complete in June 2016, will see the team delivering many services, including: provision of all primary services; installation of all back of house lighting and power requirements within the studios; and installation of all telecommunications requirements.

The SRW team is working with Sir Robert McAlpine, the primary contractor, to deliver the demanding project, which includes the construction of five full-sized studios that, on completion, will be used by film TV and film companies.

Mike Bole, Operations Manager, is leading the SRW engineering services site team. He said: “It’s a great project to be working on in a location that has such incredible history regarding the film and television industry.”
