Wirral Met College Campus

Wirral Met College Campus

Project Summary


M&E Design


£1.4 million


Quartzelec’s Manchester operations secured, via construction and infrastructure company Morgan Sindall, a £1.4 Million M&E design project for the new Wirral Met College Campus at Wirral Waters. 

Being constructed on two floors to provide over 4300sq metres of educational and administration space, the college building is set on the Bank of the River Mersey, part of the largest regeneration area of the UK.  The campus aims to set new design standards and make the engineering a real life learning experience for students, staff and visitors, so particular attention to detail is required.

The Project

Quartzelec’s remit covers the design, installation, testing and commissioning of the full Mechanical and Electrical installations on the project with up to 20 qualified Quartzelec engineers working on the project at any given time, working in parallel with other contractors. It is also envisaged that the project should achieve a BREEAM Excellent rating and some of the technologies being used include LED lighting, a CHP unit, heat recovery units and under floor heating.

The new Wirral Met College Campus at Wirral Waters is part of a long term vision by Peel Group to transform 500 acres of Birkenhead dockland, part of the Mersey Waters Enterprise Zone and will be a dedicated Built Environment, Skills and Enterprise Centre that provides young adults with relevant skills aligned to local industries.
