JS Wright to provide eco services for major care scheme

Main contractor Thomas Vale Construction has commissioned JS Wright to install solar-heated water, rainwater harvesting and wind catching systems pre-designed designed by Aecom for 59 self-contained apartments at the new Lightmoor Village Extra Care scheme in Telford, Shropshire.
The apartments, which are supported by community facilities including a bistro, hair salon and gym, have been developed by Bournville Village Trust in partnership with the Homes & Communities Agency (HCA) and Telford and Wrekin Borough Council to provide an alternative to residential care for older and disabled people.
JS Wright will install solar roof panels that preheat the cold water feed to a central boiler house for the domestic hot water system, and a harvesting system that stores rainwater in underground tanks before being circulated to toilet cisterns.
It will also be fit rooftop wind catchers with automatic dampers to control airflow through the apartments to maintain comfortable temperatures.
The company starts work on site this month on the six-month contract, which will also involve installing above ground drainage and sanitary ware.
The development is scheduled for completion in July 2011.
