J S Wright has secured a contract valued at more than £9 million to install the engineering infrastructure systems for the third and largest phase of one of London’s biggest regeneration projects.
The mechanical and electrical package will serve 620 apartments at Hallsville Quarter, a new £600 million town centre scheme which is being developed by Bouygues UK for Canning Town in the east London borough of Newham.
The mix of private rented, shared ownership, affordable and extra care units, spread across the eight buildings constituting Phase Three, are part of ambitious plans to create a thriving community and establish a legacy for Canning Town.
J S Wright will provide a heating distribution network to circulate low temperature hot water from an energy centre to the apartments, along with the pipework systems from plantrooms to distribute mains and boosted cold water.
The mechanical works will also include installing above ground drainage in landlord areas and internal rainwater harvesting systems.
In addition, J S Wright will install variable refrigerant flow heating and cooling services and domestic services for the extra care units. It will also provide domestic services for a management suite and a Shop Mobility facility.
The electrical works will involve fitting a low voltage power distribution network, fire detection, suppression and containment systems, landlord lighting and power services, and external lighting.
Work on site has already started on the project which is scheduled for completion in late 2023.
J S Wright is already working with Bouygues UK on another contract to fit out the M&E services for Castle Park View, a 375-unit private housing scheme in Bristol and the first to be connected to Bristol City Council’s heat network.
Managing Director Phil Leech commented: “We are delighted that such a prestigious developer has turned again to our mechanical and electrical expertise to help transform the lives of residents in a rapidly developing area of London.”
