J S Wright lands latest package on huge estate regen

The Birmingham-based company, which also has a new London office in Euston, will provide the mechanical services for 352 new apartments on the First Development Site of the Aylesbury Estate in Walworth.

J S Wright is already close to completing the 229 apartments in the first phase (Phase A) of the FDS, which will comprise 800 homes and form part of a regeneration process that will eventually deliver 3,500 homes.

The first two phases (Phases A and B) of exclusively social housing are being delivered in partnership with housebuilder The Hill Group, housing developer Notting Hill Genesis and Southwark Council.

J S Wright will design and build an energy centre with gas-fired combined heat and power units and gas-fired boilers that will feed heat interface units in each apartment to deliver instant hot water on demand and heating to radiators at low return temperatures

The contract will also involve installing a cold-water plantroom and distribution network to deliver boosted cold water and residential sprinklers to all apartments.

In addition, the Phase B work will include fitting mechanical ventilation heat recovery systems, wet and dry risers, sanitary ware, internal rainwater, and above-ground drainage systems.

Also within the commission is a building management control system that includes a pre-payment billing system for each apartment’s energy use.

J S Wright is beginning work now on Phase B of the Aylesbury Estate FDS, with the contracted work due for completion in December 2023.

Phil Leech, Managing Director of J S Wright, said: “Having already showcased our excellent skills and experience in designing and installing building services in a fully integrated way for the first phase of this life-transforming development for residents, I am thrilled we have been selected to complete phase B.”
