J S WRIGHT Gets Green Services On Stream For Severn Trent

One of the UK's most sustainable new office developments is to have its mechanical services designed and fitted by Birmingham-based J S Wright.

BAM Construction has awarded the building services provider a £700,000 contract to fit out the new 28,000 sq ft two-storey headquarters of Severn Trent Water being constructed on the site of the utility's existing offices in Shelton, Shrewsbury.

Designed by Birmingham architects Glenn Howells to reduce energy costs by a third, the BREEAM 'excellent' rated development incorporates sustainable materials including recycled timber and clear glazing.

J S Wright is starting work on site this month, with completion scheduled for September 2011. The brief is to design, provide and install energy efficient low velocity ventilation, low pressure hot water trench heating and an automated systems controls package.

To complement a natural ventilation system, the company will be laying underground ductwork that will regulate the heat or coolness coming from the ground in line with the outside temperature before passing it through a heat recovery system.

It will also be installing a water reclamation system incorporating a rainwater storage tank and a borehole for toilet flushing, as well as providing domestic water services and above ground drainage for the development, which will include 223 new work stations.

Sean Duffy, Project Manager for BAM, said: “We chose J S Wright on the basis of a strong and successful association we have built up with the company over the years.”

Ted Pearce, Property Director of Severn Trent Water, said: “Our new offices will not only meet our corporate objectives in sustainability but will also deliver a strong and flexible design and an excellent working environment for our staff.”

Marcus Aniol, Managing Director of J S Wright, said: “This development will provide a cutting edge example of how we can minimise the impact of a building's services on the environment as well as enable its occupiers to participate in saving energy.”

J S Wright, which celebrated its 120th anniversary last year, was named Building Sustainable Design (BSD) M&E Contractor of the Year in 2009.
