Mechanical and electrical building services specialist J S Wright has won a £20 million fit-out and maintenance contract at Nine Elms Parkside regeneration in Battersea, south-west London.
The company, which has offices in London and Birmingham, will install the mechanical services for all 894 apartments in two buildings at the development on the south side of the River Thames.
All the works will receive two years of planned maintenance cover carried out by Wright Maintenance, J S Wright’s FM company. Work has begun on-site with completion due in the third quarter of 2022.
J S Wright will fit out the one, two and three-bedroom apartments with underfloor heating systems, along with fan coil units for comfort cooling. The company will also equip the kitchens and bathrooms with hot and cold-water services, soil and wastewater disposal systems, sanitaryware and mechanical extract ventilation systems, as well as install above-ground drainage services and fire sprinklers for both buildings.
The build-to-rent scheme is being built by Telford Homes as the main contractor for global rental housing developer Greystar as part of the Nine Elms regeneration project – a new neighbourhood stretching from Battersea to Vauxhall that will eventually contain 20,000 homes plus cultural, retail and business facilities.
Phil Leech, managing director of J S Wright, said it was the company’s first contract with Telford Homes “to fit out what amounts to the largest number of apartments in our history at one of the UK’s biggest regeneration projects”.
