Mechanical and electrical building services provider J S Wright has secured a contract valued at more than £6.5million for the first stage in the regeneration of an estate in south-east London.

The Birmingham-based company will design and build the mechanical services for the initial 229 apartments in the First Development Site (FDS) of more than 800 homes on the Aylesbury Estate in Walworth, for housebuilder Hill.
J S Wright will install a low-pressure hot water heating system and associated pipework to feed radiators within each apartment, along with a cold-water plantroom and distribution network to deliver boosted cold water as part of the domestic hot and cold-water services.

The company will supply and install a heat interface unit in each apartment to act as a bridge to deliver instant hot water on demand and hot water to the radiators at low return temperatures. It will also fit mechanical ventilation heat recovery and extract systems, dry risers and domestic sprinklers, sanitary ware that will make use of internal rainwater, and above-ground drainage.

Work has already started on project, which is scheduled for completion in March 2021.
