HE Simm has completed a £19m Mechanical, Electrical and Public Health (MEP) installation at a mixed-use development in the London district of Shoreditch.
The work forms part of a London Borough of Hackney Education scheme which has seen an old school site on Nile Street developed as the ‘Makers’ – a mixed-used educational and residential scheme of high-quality apartments and duplexes with New Regents College and includes community sports facilities and external green spaces.
The building consists of a seven-storey block on Nile Street with roof duplexes and an interconnected podium with a 28-storey tower with penthouses – the development houses five studio flats, 170 two and three bedroomed apartments, family duplexes with private roof terraces and penthouses.
The Nile street redevelopment began in May 2017, and for its part, the Liverpool headquartered firm installed a full MEP package including new heating, ventilation and water systems, lighting and bathroom fittings, fire safety and access control systems, CCTV and security, sprinklers.
Working alongside main contractor McLaren Construction, for the London Borough of Hackney, the total scheme took 32 months to complete and was achieved using a team of direct employees and local subcontractors.
Gareth Simm, HE Simm’s Managing Director, said: “It’s been fantastic to have been involved in the Makers, Nile Street development and the successful handover to McLaren Construction furthers our already strong relationship with our customer, which has been forged over a number of years.
“Delivering these types of schemes is in our DNA – it’s what we do. The successful completion of this scheme demonstrates how our team, alongside sub-contractor partners, deliver quality work on our projects.”
