The work will create a state-of-the-art Combined Heat & Power energy centre providing low-carbon heating and power to local businesses and residents.
The energy centre will produce enough heat and power to supply the equivalent of 2,500 homes and its first customers will be the new Hilton hotel, shops and over 400 apartments currently being delivered as part of the Victoria Square development.
The energy centre comprises a three-storey building at the junction of Poole Road and Butts Road, with energy plant and equipment based on the ground and first floors and a new headquarters for ThamesWey on the third floor.
The building is being constructed to be capable of upward extension of up to a further 17 stories of co-living space.
When complete the flues from the energy centre will measure 29.3m.
Rob Callaghan, Regional Director for Vital Energi said: “This scheme was designed with long-term growth in mind and will be able to meet Woking’s energy needs well into the future, providing a resilient, low-carbon energy infrastructure.”
The project is being delivered for ThamesWey by Galliford Try. The mechanical and engineering consultants on the project are Hulley & Kirkwood and Vital Energi have been working on the project since 2018 and recently won the contract to undertake the mechanical and electrical services installations.
