Vital Secure £3.8m M&E Package with Berkeley

After working with the Berkeley Group for over 12 years, Vital Energi have been awarded their Royal Warwick Square project by St Edward to adapt the energy scheme.

Royal Warwick Square is set to start construction this quarter and will see Vital implement the extension of the mechanical and electrical infrastructure installation for the £3.8m energy solution.

The project was awarded to Vital following a long-standing relationship with the developers, and previous experience working on similar schemes. Vital’s ongoing work on Berkeley’s Prince of Wales Drive energy scheme to deliver a similar solution has demonstrated the skills required to add value to their Royal Warwick Square project.

The scheme will see Vital install additional equipment into the existing energy centre from the first phase to cater for the extra demand from the 6 new blocks, including two boilers and a 210kWe CHP engine. The new buildings will see low temperature hot water, chilled water and low voltage connections to serve the 6 new blocks, as well as the installation of a new chiller plant room at basement level and associated roof mounted plant. Vital have worked closely with St Edward in order to create a construction schedule to minimise disruption to other contractors onsite. 

Royal Warwick Square is a collection of 1, 2 & 3 bedroom properties with private leisure facilities in the Royal Borough of Chelsea and Kensington.

Rob Callaghan, Regional Director for the South for Vital Energi, comments, “We are delighted to be working with St Edward to deliver an extension of their existing energy solution. We have carefully considered all site activity and the wider community to present a construction plan with little disruption, and look forward to implementing the scheme.”

Vital have worked with the Berkeley Group since 2006 on projects such as Royal Arsenal Riverside, Prince of Wales Drive and Kidbrooke Village.

Work has been scheduled to start in February 2019 and will last until February 2020.
