Birmingham-based JS Wright has won a £4.5-million contract to fit out a new £46-million regeneration scheme in London.
The company is to design and install the mechanical services for 274 new apartments including 104 affordable units at Central Street near the Barbican for residential developer and contractor Mount Anvil.
JS Wright is set to start work in September on the two-acre site, which comprises a mix of one- to three-bed apartments in seven blocks of between five to ten storeys.
The scheme, funded by Allied Irish Bank and Lloyds TSB Corporate Markets, also includes 4,500 sq ft of commercial space that the company will also be fitting out.
One Housing Group, which manages more than 12,000 properties across London, will own and manage the affordable housing at the scheme, which is scheduled for completion in July 2012 with phased handovers beginning in the summer of 2011.
The project is JS Wright’s largest for Mount Anvil and brings to six the total number of contracts that it has been awarded by the developer in the past four years alone.
Marcus Aniol, JS Wright managing director, said: “We are delighted to be playing such a major role in London’s regeneration by winning our biggest-ever contract with one of London’s top developers.”
