The company is to provide all the services for 20-storey Elmgrove House, a top-quality eco-efficient £16million housing scheme in Plumstead being built for ASRA Greater London Housing Association.

The company will be carrying out the work as part of a £1.5million contract with Galliford Try.

The project will include designing and installing a central boiler house with a biomass boiler to provide renewable energy for all 119 apartments in the scheme, which is designed by Alan Camp Architects.

Elmgrove House has already been awarded demonstration-project status as an example of best practice by Construction Excellence, which monitors and improves performance in the construction industry.

J S Wright will also be installing a boosted cold water system to serve the three-bed apartments and four-bed duplexes, each of which will be fitted with a hydraulic interface unit to receive low-pressure hot water services.

Each flat will have an individual balcony and each duplex a private garden - and 10% of all homes will have wheelchair access. The company will also be installing a new car park ventilation system for the development which is scheduled for completion in August 2010.

'J S Wright was chosen to carry out the mechanical works as it has built up a good working relationship after completing similar schemes for us in the past,' said Bradleigh Coker, project manager for Galliford Try.

JS Wright has also won a £3-million deal in Greenwich, south London, with Galliard Construction to provide mechanical services including VRV heat reclaim ventilation for a new 158-bed Premier Inn hotel.

The company will be designing and installing centralised plant services, heat exchangers and substations, as well as plumbing 226 privately owned apartments within six blocks, all of which have been pre-sold.

Work is scheduled to begin on site in September 2009 in readiness for completion in October 2010.

The company has also won a £1.4million deal with London developer Mount Anvil to fit out a new £45million scheme of top quality houses and apartments at Barnsbury Place in Islington.

Nine new houses, 15 new-build and 80 refurbished apartments, make up the private development, which marries the refurbishment of three original Edwardian buildings with the highest standards of contemporary design.

A separate community space for local art as well as 37 affordable apartments will complete the scheme.

J S Wright, which has completed more than 20 major housing projects for Mount Anvil, will be plumbing all the apartments and equipping the remaining homes with self-contained gas-fired boilers in readiness for an Autumn 2009 launch.

'We chose J S Wright because of the long and successful working relationship we have enjoyed and the consistently outstanding quality of its design and installation work,' said Peter Burslem, operations director for Mount Anvil.
