The amenities contract for one of London’s biggest build-to-rent luxury developments has been awarded to J S Wright.
The deal, worth more than £1.6 million, will involve providing the mechanical services for the amenity spaces within two buildings (Blocks B and D) at Nine Elms Parkside in Battersea.
The development is being built by Telford Homes for global rental housing developer Greystar, and its amenities will include receptions and office space, together with residents’ gyms, lounges, bars, dining rooms and libraries.
Already working for the developer on a separate £20m mechanical services package for all 894 buy-to-let apartments within the two buildings, JSW will also provide two years of planned maintenance cover through its facilities management company, Wright Maintenance, as part of the package.
J S Wright will fit out the amenity spaces with 4-pipe low temperature heating and chilled water fan coil units, trench heating and comfort cooling (DX) air conditioning systems. Supply and extract ventilation via heat recovery units will also be installed.
The company will also install domestic hot and cold-water services, soil and waste, and sanitaryware installations. In addition, the company will connect all the mechanical services to a building management system (BMS).
Work on the 80-week project is set to begin on site this month (June).
Managing Director Phil Leech said: “We are delighted that the expertise we have already been demonstrating on our first-ever residential project for Telford Homes has now led to being awarded the amenities package.”
Nine Elms Parkside is part of a new neighbourhood stretching from Battersea to Vauxhall that will eventually contain 20,000 homes as well as cultural, retail and business facilities.
