J S Wright has secured a deal worth more than £1.5 million to fit heating and utilities in a affordable homes development in East London.
The company will fit out all 70 flats and communal spaces at Jolles House on Bromley High Street in Tower Hamlets.
The one to three-bed all-affordable scheme is being developed within two linked six-storey buildings by Essex-based housebuilder Hill to help meet a growing local need for affordable accommodation.
J S Wright will design and build the heating, hot and cold water, drainage and ventilation services for the landscaped development on the site of the previously demolished Jolles House and Blue Anchor public house.
The energy-efficient and carbon-reducing systems and services will include a low-pressure hot water heating system with distribution pipework to feed radiators in all the apartments, as well as a cold-water plant room to deliver boosted cold water as part of the domestic hot and cold-water services.
The company will supply and install a heat interface unit in each flat as a bridge to deliver instant hot water on demand and hot water to the radiators at low return temperatures. The installation of sanitary ware, above-ground drainage and internal rainwater systems are also part of the commission.
It will also fit a mechanical ventilation heat recovery system, which recovers outgoing air from each flat to heat incoming fresh air, and dry risers and domestic sprinklers for fire protection as well as building management controls, including a prepayment billing system for each flat's energy use, and 12 months' maintenance.
Work on the 12-month project is scheduled to start this month.
