Mechanical and electrical services specialist J S Wright has been awarded a contract worth more than £4 million by Galliard Homes to fit out all 379 apartments at The Timber Yard in Birmingham’s Chinatown.

The mixed-use scheme on Pershore Street will consist of two residential buildings of up to 14 storeys containing a mix of studio, one, two and three-bedroom apartments, along with 10,000 sq ft of ground-floor commercial space.

The Timber Yard, named after its timber yard and plywood works history, is a joint venture between Galliard and Apsley House Capital aimed at meeting a growing need for high-quality city centre homes for young professionals.

J S Wright will equip all the apartments with direct electric hot water cylinders to provide residents with thermostatically controlled and pressurised hot and cold water.

The company will also install a boosted cold water plant room with distribution pipework to all plots on the development.

It will also fit all sanitaryware and an internal rainwater system, as well as the pipework required for all above-ground drainage management.

The brief also includes installing a mechanical ventilation heat recovery system that will provide continuous ventilation to the apartments.

In addition, J S Wright will install sprinklers in all apartments and dry risers in communal areas for protection against fire, and a computerised Building Management System for controlling and monitoring all the building services.

Work on site on the two-year project will begin in October with completion scheduled for October 2021.

Phil Leech, Managing Director of J S Wright, said: “We are delighted to have been appointed to help deliver the first Birmingham project for a longstanding London-based client, and to be at the heart of meeting demand for high-quality accommodation in the city of our roots.”
