Birmingham contractor lands £20m deal for London regeneration scheme
Birmingham-based mechanical and electrical building services specialist J S Wright has secured a £20m contract to support one of the UK’s biggest regeneration projects.
The company, which has its headquarters on Portland Street in Aston and an office in central London, is to fit out the mechanical services for all 894 apartments – the largest number in the company’s 130-year history – in two buildings at Nine Elms Parkside in Battersea on the south side of the River Thames in London.
The build-to-rent development is being built by Telford Homes as main contractor for global rental housing developer Greystar as part of the Nine Elms regeneration project – a new neighbourhood stretching from Battersea to Vauxhall that will eventually contain 20,000 homes as well as cultural, retail and business facilities.
All the works will receive two years of planned maintenance cover carried out by Wright Maintenance, J S Wright’s facilities management company.
J S Wright has just begun work on site with completion due in the third quarter of 2022.
Phil Leech, managing director of J S Wright, said: “We are delighted to have been awarded our first contract with Telford Homes to fit out what amounts to the largest number of apartments in our history at one of the UK’s biggest regeneration projects.”
