J S Wright is to equip the first phase of a new housing development at Lambeth in south London. 

The company will provide the mechanical services for 16 energy efficient apartments in a new five-storey building at Knight’s Walk.

The contract, valued at more than £600,000, with housebuilder Hill also includes one year of planned service maintenance cover provided by J S Wright’s residential maintenance company Wright Maintenance.

J S Wright will install a communal heating and hot water system with distribution from a central energy centre to apartment radiators. 

The company will also equip all the apartments with an MVHR heat recovery ventilation system, sanitaryware, and soil and wastewater services, as well as provide the building with above-ground acoustic drainage services and a rainwater harvesting system.

The commission also involves providing a pre-payment energy billing system linked into a computer-controlled building management system (BMS) and controls, and plantroom ventilation. 

Work on site has already started with completion scheduled for August 2021.

Managing Director Phil Leech commented: “We are delighted to be able to team up again with a leading housebuilder in helping to provide comfortable energy efficient new homes in south London.”
