Pipe Center’s prefabrication facility at Basildon is working with Vier Construction to design and build 360 bespoke utility cupboards for homes in the Elephant & Castle regeneration project in London. As part of the wider project, facilities-services company Vier Construction was appointed by Lendlease for the delivery of M&E and public-health services in the first phase of Elephant Park, known as South Gardens, which will deliver 360 new homes by 2017.

These utility cupboards comprise a heat interface unit to the district heating system for hot water, heat-recovery unit, underfloor-heating manifold, domestic hot- and cold-water manifolds and washing-machine outlets.

A prototype was sent to Kings Cross, where Vier Construction has assembled a compressed replica apartment under an old railway arch as a testing ground for the wider project.
