Building supplies firm celebrates landmark with record deal

JS Wright secures record-breaking deal in 125th anniversary year.

Birmingham-based building services contractor JS Wright is enjoying the perfect start to its 125th anniversary year after securing its biggest-ever deal.

The company, founded in 1890, has won a £10 million-plus commission to equip more than 400 new homes at one of the biggest regeneration schemes in east London. It is one of a series of contracts with a total value exceeding £18 million that Galliard Homes has awarded JS Wright for Indescon Court at Millharbour. The company will provide mechanical services to 423 private apartments in four blocks, including a 32-storey building, at the £100 million development.

JS Wright, which has its HQ in Aston and an office in London, will be installing heat-interface units in each apartment for residents to receive energy efficient heating and hot water as part of the second section of Indescon Court Phase 2. The company has also won a further £2.5 million contract with Galliard to provide mechanical and public health installations for a new 12-storey, 130-bed deluxe hotel on the same site.

The company has built a strong relationship with Galliard Homes, having installed the energy centre for 980 luxury and affordable homes at New Capital Quay in nearby Greenwich Reach and completed 226 affordable apartments and a 158-bed Premier Inn hotel at Greenwich Commercial Centre in the past three years. Managing Director Marcus Aniol said: “Our biggest ever contract has confirmed the faith that Galliard Homes has placed in us as a preferred partner for some of the most prestigious residential and hotel projects in London.”
