Building services specialist J S Wright has secured a £1.6m-plus contract to fit out the amenities for one of London’s biggest build-to-rent luxury developments.
The mechanical and electrical services contractor will provide the mechanical services for the amenity spaces within two buildings (Blocks B and D) at Nine Elms Parkside in Battersea.
The amenities for the development, which is being built by Telford Homes for global rental housing developer Greystar, will include receptions and office space, together with residents’ gyms, lounges, bars, dining rooms and libraries.
J S Wright, which is already working on a separate £20 million mechanical services package for all 894 buy-to-let apartments within the two buildings for Telford Homes, will also provide two years of planned maintenance cover through its facilities management company, Wright Maintenance, as part of the package.
The 131-year-old contractor 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.
J S Wright will also install domestic hot and cold-water services, soil and waste, and sanitaryware installations. The company will also connect all the mechanical services to a building management system (BMS).
Work on the 80-week project is set to begin on site in June 2021.
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.
