Building services provider J S Wright has secured a £3.5m contract to help transform a former industrial area of north London to a luxury residential suburb. The company is to install the mechanical services for 227 new homes on the site of a former telephone and electric works building at Sarena House (pictured) in Colindale for Galliard Homes.
J S Wright will equip 191 apartments and town houses, as well as 36 affordable flats, set in luxury courtyards and gardens. The work includes installation of a central energy centre with a combined heat and power boiler for the properties, which include six individual apartment buildings with terraces or balconies and six houses with private gardens.
The company will also equip each apartment with a heating interface unit to deliver domestic water services, and a mechanical extraction ventilation (MEV) system, which will provide continuous energy efficient ventilation without the need for extractor fans.
J S Wright will also install above-ground drainage, gas services, building management system controls, sanitary services and dry risers throughout the scheme. The company began work on site this month (August) with completion scheduled for March 2018.
