Building services provider J S Wright has secured a trade package worth almost £1.4m for a major new affordable housing development in South-East London.

The mechanical and electrical design and build specialist will provide energy efficient heating and ventilation for all 66 homes at The Reach on Battery Road in West Thamesmead.

The Peabody scheme being built on unused land at Thames Reach will comprise a mix of one, two and three-bedroom apartments, a communal garden, and a commercial unit.

The Reach is part of the West Thamesmead, Plumstead and Abbey Wood Housing Zone, one of two housing zones being delivered in Thamesmead by Peabody with a £47.5m investment from the Greater London Authority.

Developer Hill has commissioned J S Wright to design and install a communal heat network to provide energy efficient combined heat and power for the four to six-storey development.

The network will incorporate a centralised energy centre and distribution pipework to all apartments, each of which will have radiators, and will be built to Fair Heat specification and in accordance with the principles of the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) Heat Networks Code of Practice.

J S Wright will supply and fit heat interface units within each apartment to act as a bridge to deliver low pressure instant domestic hot water on demand as well as hot water to the radiators at low return temperatures.

The company will also install a cold water booster set and tank room to boost cold water distribution to all the apartments, and a mechanical ventilation heat recovery system that will use the outgoing air from each property to heat incoming fresh air.

The brief also includes installing sanitary ware and above-ground drainage, as well as building management controls including M-Bus wiring for metering each apartment’s energy use.

J S Wright will start work on site in June 2018 with completion scheduled for February 2019.

Marcus Aniol, Managing Director of J S Wright, said: “We are delighted that such a prestigious developer has again turned to our skills and experience to help deliver new affordable and private home schemes in an area of London undergoing major regeneration.”
