Building services specialist J S Wright has secured a contract worth more than £2m to fit out one of Birmingham’s tallest residential buildings.

The M&E services specialist has been commissioned by Wates Construction to equip the new 31-storey second building at The Bank development on the city’s Broad Street for Regal (West Point) Ltd.

J S Wright, which has its headquarters in Birmingham and offices in Bristol and London, will design and install all the mechanical services for the building’s 205 high-quality apartments including boosted cold water and domestic hot water services supplied through electric water heaters.

It will also provide an energy saving heat recovery ventilation system, water sprinklers, above-ground drainage and a building management controls system.

The iconic 16,055 sq m structure is nine storeys higher than its neighbouring building, which is already in the process of being equipped by J S Wright.

J S Wright will start work on site on the second building this summer with completion scheduled for autumn 2019. Both buildings have been designed by Glancy Nicholls Architects.

Marcus Aniol, J S Wright Managing Director, said: “We are delighted to be able to apply our specialist skills and experience in continuing to regenerate Birmingham’s Broad Street as a vibrant city centre area in which to live, work and shop.”
