Box & Charnock is delighted to announce a new £11m contract to supply comprehensive MEPH services to St James Group’s new Smithfield Square development, located on the former Hornsey Depot site in north London’s Haringey.
Fronting on to Hornsey High Street, this 5.25 acre site which sits at the foot of Alexandra Palace Park will comprise a contemporary collection of 440 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedroom apartments, a large Sainsbury’s supermarket, retail and commercial space, plus private and public landscaped gardens.
According to Steve Dickinson, Commercial Director, St James Group “We were impressed by Box & Charnock’s ‘can do’ approach and attention to detail. They are a good fit with our business in terms of management style and project delivery and we are looking forward to developing our working relationship with them at the Smithfield Square development.”
As part of the contract, Box and Charnock will provide mechanical and electrical services to the four apartment blocks and the Sainsbury’s superstore via a dedicated energy centre. In addition to the energy centre, services include plumbing; heating; ventilation systems; electrics; lighting; security systems; data and Wi-Fi services.
The contract gets underway mid-February and work is expected to continue until April 2018.
“We are delighted to have secured the contract to deliver the mechanical and electrical services at Smithfield Square which is our first contract with St James.” said Steven Box, joint managing director, Box and Charnock.
“Our expertise lies in new build residential/mixed use developments and we have vast experience over many years in large fast track schemes, working for some of the UK’s best known developers. The requirements of the contract therefore fit very well with our project delivery skill set and current target market.”
“Smithfield Square is a very prestigious scheme for Box & Charnock and we are looking forward to a productive and long term relationship with St James.”
The Hornsey Depot site has been derelict for several years and this development forms part of the wider regeneration of the area, with Smithfield Square set to become a key landmark in this part of north London.
