Kane has landed a £29m design and build contract with Balfour Beatty to deliver the MEP (mechanical, electrical, plumbing) installation at Lewisham Gateway Phase 2.
The 26-month contract involves the design and construction of 649 residential units of between 11 to 30 storeys – 530 of which will be residential apartments and 119 for co-living.
The Lewisham Gateway Phase 2 scheme also includes retail units, a space for a cinema, and a below-ground energy centre.
Kane will deliver efficient offsite construction solutions by incorporating prefabricated utility pods in each residential unit.
Additionally, the energy centre will be prefabricated offsite, along with corridor service modules containing all landlords’ low-temperature hot water, boosted cold water and sprinkler pipework, and electrical containment.
All offsite construction solutions will be designed and manufactured at Kane’s prefabrication facility in Northern Ireland.
Further works include the full public health installation, which comprises all above-ground foul and rainwater pipework and domestic cold-water system, served by cold-water storage plant rooms.
Commenting on the contract, Cathal McMullan, managing director at Kane, said: “We are delighted to secure this project with our new client, Balfour Beatty, and we look forward to delivering an exceptional MEP contract, which we can all be proud of.
“This is a testament to the whole team at Kane, showcasing our outstanding in-house capabilities to deliver contracts to this scale in the high-rise residential market.”
