Building services provider J S Wright is to fit out Britain’s tallest brick residential tower after securing its biggest ever deal.
The company has won a contract worth more than £27m to equip the new luxury Keybridge development in Vauxhall, south London.
A joint venture between housing developers Mount Anvil and Fabrica, the 441-home regeneration scheme will incorporate two brick apartment blocks, one of which, at 128m high, will be the tallest in the UK.
Keybridge is being built on the site of former Keybridge House, the brutalist former concrete BT telephone exchange dubbed “London’s ugliest building” by critics.
Its brick architecture has been designed to fuse London’s elegant mansion homes and robust railway arches with the Manhattan apartment blocks of the 1930s.
J S Wright will design and build the mechanical and electrical services for eight-storey Keybridge House and 37-storey Keybridge Lofts, with the support of its electrical partner Wilton Electrics.
The company will fit out all the homes, ranging from studios to three-bed apartments, with underfloor heating and ventilation services, hot and cold water services, sanitary ware, soil and waste services and domestic sprinklers.
It will also design and build an energy centre and chilled water and boosted cold water plant rooms, as well as install a rainwater harvesting system, car park ventilation, and a services metering and control system.
Work will begin on site in July 2016 with completion scheduled for December 2018.
J S Wright has fitted out more than 1,000 homes across London for Mount Anvil over the past ten years, at sites ranging from Angel Wharf, Atlanta Boulevard and Central Street to Chatham Place, South Bank University and Windmill Lane.
