Vital Energi to Deliver Energy Solution for Luxury Development


Vital Energi have been awarded the £2.6m contract with Redrow Homes to design and build the energy solution for the Padcroft development in West Drayton.

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.

As part of their contract, Vital Energi will build the energy centre containing two 750kw gas boilers, a 90kW CHP engine, a 5000L thermal store and boosted cold-water services. In addition, they will also install over 150m of district heating pipework, risers and laterals in the apartment blocks, and supply 330 hydraulic interface units.

Rob Callaghan, Vital Energi’s Regional Director for London, commented, “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.”

Padcroft is a new residential development in West Drayton which will be a mixture of 1, 2 and 3 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.
