J S Wright, a leading building services specialist, has secured a contract worth almost £3.5m through which it says it will provide residents at Arena Central in Birmingham with the highest standards of energy efficient comfort and security.
The award-winning contractor will design and build the mechanical and electrical services for 323 apartments within two new 17 and 22-storey blocks on the city centre site next to the Alpha Tower in Holiday Street for Galliford Try Building.
With headquarters in Birmingham and offices in Bristol and London, J S Wright will supply and install a cold water booster set and tank room, water sprinklers, above ground drainage, wet risers and a symphonic rainwater system.
It will also equip all the apartments with hot water cylinders to provide mains pressure hot water and low-energy mechanical extract ventilation (MEV) for all wet rooms within the £40m private rental sector apartment scheme.
In addition, the contract involves installing whole-house mechanical ventilation (MVHR) for the continuous supply of filtered pre-heated fresh air and purge ventilation to remove pollutants. It also extends to fitting direct expansion (DX) cooling units to directly cool incoming air in a number of the apartments.
J S Wright will also manage the design and installation of the electrical safety and security services for the development in association with its Birmingham electrical partner JT Hawkes (Electrical Contractors).
J S Wright will start work on site on the project in August 2017 with completion scheduled for February 2019. The 18-month project is the tenth that J S Wright has been awarded by Galliford Try Partnerships in the past eight years.
