After being involved with the energy scheme at the 88-acre Royal Arsenal Riverside development since 2006, 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 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.
Rob Callaghan, Vital Energi’s Regional Director for the South, comments, “We have been involved with the Royal Arsenal Riverside development for over 13 years, contributing to the regeneration of this area of Woolwich. Our experience and prior involvement in the project places us in the best position to deliver the mechanical and infrastructure package for the newest residential blocks.”
Royal Arsenal Riverside is a vibrant 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 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.
