Greenwich Peninsula Plots 114 and 115
Project title: Plots 114 and 115
Client: Wates Building Services
Service: Smoke Control
The impressive Greenwich Peninsula development is set to be a flourishing district comprising 62,500 sqm of commercial, retail and office space. Located one Tube stop from Canary Wharf and in the Royal Borough of Greenwich, Knight Dragon’s Greenwich Peninsula will have more than 10,000 residential units across 51 residential developments, providing homes for 23,000 people.
The residential units will combine with 48 acres of open green spaces and will be located alongside shops, hotels, schools and public facilities, all outlined by 1.6 miles of waterfront. Greenwich Peninsula, one of the largest regeneration schemes in Europe, is located right next to The O2 and the Emirates Air Line Cable Car. Work at the site is planned to take around 20 years in total.
We designed, supplied and commissioned the smoke ventilation systems on both buildings to comply with Fire Engineering Consultants Jeremy Gardener Associates’ (JGA) fire strategy and to comply with Building Services Consultants Foreman Roberts’ specifications. Including our sub-contractors, there were around 15-20 Group SCS staff involved in this project. We handed over Plot 115 (Core A) on October 5, 2015, and Plot 114 on November 4, 2015.
Curtis Rees, Group SCS Project Engineer, said: “This was the biggest project I’ve worked on so far and I was really pleased with the result. It was a demanding project, however by working with Wates Building Services and our supply chain we were able to deliver the project on time and to the customer’s satisfaction.”
