The Birmingham-based company is to design and build the mechanical services for all 97 apartments and communal spaces at Thamesview House on Felix Road in Walton-on-Thames.
The £20m one to two-bed scheme is being built with staggered heights from six to nine storeys by housebuilder The Hill Group for affordable housing provider PA Housing. It will replace an outdated existing nine-storey residential block comprising 64 homes built in 1972.
Thamesview House will bring the number of new apartments J S Wright and Hill are working together on to over 1,000.
The company will design and install Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHP) at Thamesview House.
J S Wright will also equip each apartment with a heat interface unit (HIU) to act as a bridge to deliver instant hot water on demand and hot water to radiators at low return temperatures.
The brief will also involve installing residential sprinklers for fire protection and an above-ground drainage system and supplying and installing all sanitaryware.
In addition, J S Wright will fit a mechanical ventilation heat recovery (MVHR) system, which recovers outgoing air from each apartment to heat incoming fresh air, and provide building management controls, including a pre-payment billing system for each apartment’s energy use.
Sister company Wright Maintenance will also provide 12 months of maintenance support for the development including all communal areas.
Work on-site on the 18-month project is scheduled to start this month.
Peter Grierson, Managing Director of J S Wright, said: “We are delighted that a development partner with whom we enjoy such an excellent association has again turned to our design and build expertise to deliver much-needed high-quality energy efficient affordable homes fit for future generations.”
