JS Wright wins Docklands towers fit-out
Building services specialist JS Wright has secured a contract worth more than £8m to provide the engineering infrastructure systems for a new high-rise development in London’s Docklands.
JS Wright will supply and install the shell and core services for Harbour Central at Canary Wharf for Galliard Homes.
The two-year contract, which is scheduled for completion in March 2019, will support the construction of 642 luxury private apartments across five buildings – including the 41-storey Maine Tower.
JS Wright will provide low pressure hot water heating and chilled water cooling systems, served by a combined heat and power energy centre installed on the 467ft high roof of the landmark tower. It will also install above-ground drainage and rainwater harvesting systems, gas services, and domestic hot and cold water services including boosted cold water, along with wet risers, sprinklers, car park and smoke ventilation, and irrigation systems.
The contract follows JS Wright’s completion in December 2016 of nearby Capital Towers, another residential development, comprising the 34-storey Sky View Tower and 14-storey City Wall Tower, for Galliard Homes.
JS Wright managing director Marcus Aniol, who recently led a senior management buyout of the company following the retirement of the previous owners, said: “We are delighted that our proven skills and expertise in equipping luxury high-rise developments have been rewarded with another commission from a developer with whom we have built a highly successful working relationship.”
