At 1.2 million square feet, Birmingham’s Bullring is a powerhouse in British retailing. With 160 stores, this iconic destination draws millions of visitors every year. But it also draws a lot of power.* That’s why the developers needed a robust, economic solution for its utilities infrastructure.
Bullring is one of the largest shopping centres in the UK. On opening day, over 275,000 eager shoppers thronged through its malls looking for bargains. But the centre’s developers were also seeking a better deal when contracting for utilities. SSE Enterprise has the scale and skills to build and operate multi-utility networks. For larger projects in and around most major UK cities, we also have the freedom to fund the development of utilities infrastructure. As a developer, this gives you the best of both worlds: the technical backing of a major national organisation, and potential for substantial savings.
* Bullring’s power grid is built on five 11kV rings with 30 distribution sub-stations.
