REL Electrical has secured a £1.5m electrical contract at a new £65m educational and residential scheme in central London.

Designed by Sheppard Robson and being built by Bouygues UK, the development combines educational facilities and an 11-storey residential tower on the site of the former Ebury Bridge Centre on Sutherland Street, close to Sloane Square, Pimlico and Victoria underground stations.

The educational element comprises a 56,000sq ft University Technical College (UTC), including engineering workshops, gym and sports facilities and a large outdoor terrace. It will sit alongside 47 residential units recently purchased by Taylor Wimpey Central London.

Kershaw Mechanical Services awarded REL the contract, which will see the team install power, lighting, PV on the roof, security systems and access control across the scheme.

Toby Buckley, Managing Director of REL said: “We’ll be working to a tight schedule that must be completed by September 2017 ready for the UTC’s new students.

“Having successfully worked with Bouygues before, including on a large secondary school, they can be assured that we have the experience, resources and knowledge to complete the project to the highest standard and within the time constraints.”

The residential tower is set to complete in 2018.
