How the Silk District development will look
Building services provider J S Wright has secured a contract worth more than £17 million to fit out one of London’s biggest residential developments.

The Birmingham-based company will design and build all the mechanical and electrical services for the first phase of The Silk District in Whitechapel.
J S Wright will provide the services for a total of 412 homes and communal areas that make up the first phase of a larger development that will total 648 homes being built on the site of a former storage facility, for joint venture partners Mount Anvil and L&Q.

The company will provide the services for The Jacquard and The Georgette, two buildings of 20 floors and seven floors respectively that also include a residents’ workspace, cinema room, gym and a 24-hour concierge.

J S Wright will equip both buildings with a mechanical ventilation heat recovery system that will reduce energy costs.
