SPIE UK has been awarded a contract for the mechanical, electrical, public health and fire engineering services for the redevelopment of the Regent’s Crescent, which was originally built by famed architect John Nash for the Prince Regent in 1820. The works are valued at over £20m and will be completed over an 86-week period, which began in June.
Given the history of Regent’s Crescent and the prestigious nature of the redevelopment, it is imperative that all works on the 63 new luxury residential apartments and 9 mews properties, with prices starting from £3.95m to £18m, are completed to the highest standard.
SPIE is responsible for the installation of the mechanical, electrical and public health infrastructure at Regent’s Crescent, including security, lighting control, combined heat and power and Building Management and Energy Management systems, in line with SPIE’s smart solutions offerings.
