Vital Energi at Royal Arsenal Riverside M&E package

Vital Energi, Royal Arsenal Riverside development

Vital Energi are continuing their relationship with Berkeley Homes after being awarded the £7m mechanical and infrastructure package for the next phase of the scheme.

The company has been involved with the energy scheme at the 88-acre Royal Arsenal Riverside development since 2006. The current work will see Vital provide the supply, installation, testing and commissioning of the mechanical infrastructure and apartment fit out for two residential blocks, containing a total of 282 properties. This includes low temperature hot water and boosted cold water services to each apartment, heat interface units (HIUs) for each property and ventilation systems.

Royal Arsenal Riverside is a mixed-use development that combines Grade I and II listed buildings with modern architecture to create an upcoming community within the London Borough of Greenwich. The development will eventually consist of over 5,000 homes, a Crossrail station, shops, restaurants and cafes, offices, a hotel, community healthcare, a nursery, and leisure facilities.

Vital Energi delivered the original energy centre and district heating scheme which has continued to grow as new phases are constructed. Work on this latest phase is expected to start in the coming months with a scheduled completion date of early 2021.
