Bow Bells ring for Birmingham building-services contractor

JS Wright, contractor

Birmingham building-services provider JS Wright is playing a role in London’s regeneration by fitting out a new £4.5 million mixed-used development in Bow. The company is working with housing group Galliford Try in designing and installing all the mechanical services for 34 Bow Common Lane, a 6-storey building being built on the site of a former car-repair workshop.

The property will have 31 high-quality apartments split between shared ownership and affordable homes, along with commercial space on the ground floor and a communal roof garden.

JS Wright will start work in November to install individual condensing boilers for radiator heating in each flat and energy-saving whole-house heat-recovery ventilation.

The £300 000 contract will also include the provision of boosted-cold-water services, a gas distribution system and above-ground soil and waste services.
