JS Wright land £8m infrastructure contract for London Docklands scheme
JS Wright has won a contract worth more than £8 million to provide the engineering infrastructure systems for a high-rise development in London’s Docklands.
The building services specialist will supply and install the shell and core services for Galliard Homes' Harbour Central scheme at Canary Wharf.
The two-year contract, which is scheduled for completion in March 2019, will support the construction of 642 luxury private apartments across five buildings -including the 41-storey Maine Tower which will contain apartments ranging from studios to penthouses with panoramic city views.
JS Wright, which has offices in Birmingham, Bristol and London, will provide low pressure hot water heating and chilled water cooling systems, served by a combined heat and power energy centre installed on the 467ft high roof of the landmark tower.
The company will also equip the scheme with above ground drainage and rainwater harvesting systems, gas services, and domestic hot and cold water services including boosted cold water, along with wet risers, sprinklers, car park and smoke ventilation, and irrigation systems.
The contract follows the completion of J S Wright’s fit out of nearby Capital Towers, another luxury residential development comprising the 34-level Sky View Tower and 14-level City Wall Tower, for Galliard Homes.
Marcus Aniol, managing director of JS Wright, who recently led a senior management buyout of the company following the retirement of the previous owners, said: “We are delighted that our proven skills and expertise in equipping luxury high-rise developments have been rewarded with another commission from a developer with whom we have built a highly successful working relationship.”
