Ram Quarter is a new-build development situated on the grounds of the former Young's Brewery in Wandsworth which has been brewing beer since 1533. Alongside responding and resolving call-outs regarding residents' supply and HIUs, Vital Energi implemented extensive maintenance schedules for the energy centre and separate chilled plant room. Our work is based on a yearly contract, which allows for great flexibility for the client.
The mixed-use development will eventually provide 338 homes with commercial units, restaurants and cafes which have been designed to reflect the heritage features of the iconic listed brewery buildings.
We collaborated with Ardmore's professional team to coordinate the design and build of the energy solution for 33 apartments over 6 new buildings. We have since been providing operation and maintenance services for the energy centre and heat interface units (HIUs).
The energy solution consists of two 229kW CHP engines, two 25,000 litre thermal stores, four 963kW boilers with the capacity for another boiler, and two 1MW chillers. We also installed HIUs, heating and cooling meters into all dwellings, along with fitting the risers and laterals for the project. The scheme was completed in 2018 and Vital has since been responsible for all operation and maintenance services for the energy centre and HIU's.
