Building services provider J S Wright has secured a £6m contract to help turn a derelict canal-side site in Birmingham into a quality residential-led development.

The mechanical and electrical specialist, which is based Aston and has an office in London, will install the mechanical infrastructure services and fit out all 650 apartments at the 117-acre Soho Wharf scheme at Soho Loop on the city’s Main Line Canal, opposite Birmingham City Hospital.

The £165m regeneration project is being driven by joint venture partners Galliard Homes and Apsley House Capital with the aim of transforming the former industrial site to attractive new apartments and townhouses, commercial space, and parks and gardens.

J S Wright will install a boosted cold-water plantroom with distribution pipework to all six blocks on the development, which will range from six to 14 storeys including retail and parking space.

In addition, the shell and core works involve installing soil and wastewater services, internal rainwater services, and dry risers for firefighting.

The company will also fit out all the one and two-bedroom apartments on the scheme with hot and cold-water services as well as soil and waste services.

The contract package for the apartments also includes installing domestic sprinklers and both heat recovery and extract ventilation systems.

Work has already commenced on the project with completion scheduled for summer 2023

Phil Leech, Managing Director of J S Wright, said: “With Birmingham undergoing a similar regeneration to London, it is a testament to our expertise that we have been appointed yet again to help deliver many more quality apartments in our home city.”
