The Vital team is working hard, and work is progressing well on our two mechanical contracts at Berkeley’s prestigious West End Gate development, which are worth a combined £7.3m.

We’ve completed the mechanical infrastructure works and apartment fit out for blocks B and D, which comprise 108 apartments over 10 storeys, and residents have now moved in.

With regards to blocks E and F, which contain 108 apartments set over 18 floors, we’ve completed 95% of the risers and laterals, and are first fixed within the apartments up to level 14 (with four floors to go) and have commenced second fix on the lower levels.

Once complete, we’ll have installed low temperature hot water and boosted cold water services to each apartment, Heat Interface Units (HIUs) and chilled water for each property along with ventilation systems. Vital will also carry out live safety elements of the project in smoke extract and sprinkler systems, as well as all the internal plumbing.
