Birmingham-based J S Wright has won a £3.5 million contract to fit out a major residential development including a 27-storey tower in central London.
The mechanical services company’s first-ever deal with the London division of Barratt Homes involves a total of 283 new-build properties that make up the final phase of the Canada Water development close to the River Thames in Southwark.
Canada Water Sites A3 and A4 comprise a series of apartment blocks from four to eight storeys in addition to the tower block close to Canada Water Jubilee line station.
J S Wright, which recently launched a London office at Trafalgar Square, will be providing co-ordinated installation drawings before installing the direct heating system for the scheme, which will run off an existing energy centre.
The company will be fitting heating interface units within each apartment, along with hot water storage, hot and cold water services, heat recovery and sanitation.
Work will begin on site in July on the mix of affordable and private accommodation to be known as Quebec House and Canada Point. They will eventually form part of a canal-side community of 2,000 homes across the Canada Water basin, which are being developed in association with Southwark Council.
Marcus Aniol, J S Wright managing director, said: “We are delighted to have been awarded our first contract with such a prestigious company as Barratt Homes for one of London’s most exciting new residential developments.
“London now accounts for more than 70 per cent of our business.”
J S Wright, founded in 1890, is a specialist provider of mechanical building services to the residential, hotel, student, social housing, leisure and commercial sectors.
