The £2.6 million contract with Redrow Homes for the design and build of the energy solution for the Padcroft development in West Drayton has been awarded to Vital Energy. Following the submission of a variant design proposal, Vital Energi joined the energy infrastructure design team and were able to add value from an early stage in the project development.
Vital Energi will build the energy centre that will consist of two 750 kW gas boilers, a 90 kW CHP engine, a 5000L thermal store and boosted cold water services, as well as over 150m of district heating pipework, risers and laterals in the apartment blocks, and 330 hydraulic interface units.
“We’re delighted to be working with Redrow Homes again following the successful delivery of the energy solution at Chiswick High Road. Being involved in the early stages of the project with the infrastructure design team has helped to identify cost savings which will now be incorporated into the construction phase,” said Rob Callaghan, Vital Energi’s Regional Director for London.
A new residential development in West Drayton, Padcroft will be a mixture of one, two and three bedroom luxury apartments. By 2019, residents will benefit from the completion of the West Drayton Crossrail station, enabling them to reach the centre of London within 30 minutes. Work is expected to be completed by November 2018.
