Mechanical and electrical building services contractor J S Wright has won a £3 million contract from developer Hill and housing association Peabody for the third and final phase of an estate regeneration in London's Docklands.
The contractor will supply and install mechanical services for 165 one, two and three-bedroom private and affordable apartments at Neptune Wharf in Fish Island Village, Hackney Wick.
The contract covers the installation of a low-temperature hot water heating system to supply the flats with power from an energy centre already built by J S Wright in the basement car park for phases 1 and 2 of the development.
Low-temperature hot water will be delivered through pipework to heat interface units that will also feed the apartments' under-floor heating. A boosted cold water system will be fitted for the domestic hot and cold water supply.
The company will also install energy-efficient mechanical ventilation heat recovery systems to use outgoing air from the flats to heat incoming fresh air, and to equip flats and communal areas with dry risers and domestic sprinklers for fire protection.
It will also fit sanitaryware, an internal rainwater system and all above-ground drainage.
J S Wright is due to start work on site later this month with completion scheduled for May next year.
Phil Leech, managing director of J S Wright, said: "We are thrilled that our excellent work on the first two phases of Neptune Wharf has resulted in fitting out the full complement of energy-efficient homes in a development that should sustain a vibrant canalside community and reflect a rich industrial heritage."
