Contract wins signal growth for ESE

ESE, a division of Chess Storage and Interiors, one of the UK’s leading providers of storage and interiors solutions, has secured new contracts totalling £1.2 million within the last 6 months for work in the public sector.

The new contracts include the supply and installation of new partitioning and ceilings for Carillion Building Services at HM Young Offender Institution Polmont, and high profile interior refurbishment projects for the Scottish Government.

The company’s activity for Carillion involved the formation of new management offices, a secure closed-visits area and agent’s offices over three floors of the Institution.

Robert Kennedy director of ESE said: -Although on the surface this appears to be a straightforward project, the fact that the partitioning system was for use in closed visitation areas meant it was required to be completely soundproof, as well as providing high levels of security and excellent visibility through the use of glass.

-By working closely with the design team, including the architect, the contractor and the client, we were able to ensure that all aspects of the design criteria in this challenging area of the project were met. High levels of security, visibility and sound performance were achieved, along with being an aesthetically pleasing and cost effective solution.

The contracts with the Scottish Government comprised two interior refurbishment projects. The first, involved the strip out and re-wiring of the ground floor of Cameron House; one of the Scottish Government buildings in Oban. A new heating system was also installed, along with partitioning, lighting, ceilings and floor coverings.

The project was delivered by the ESE team on time and within budget and resulted in a second contract, for similar work within a building in Galashiels, being awarded.

ESE is part of the CSI (Chess Storage and Interiors) Group which is composed of: ESE operating from Glasgow and Livingston, Aberdeen-based Modul8, Dundee-based Strathtay, Newgate operating from premises in the North East of England and CSI Products, an online store whereby over 9,000 of the company’s industrial and commercial equipment products are available to buy from anywhere in the UK. The Group employs approximately 65 staff.
