Forming part of the East Croydon Masterplan, Galaxy House consists of 297 apartments spread across four blocks which were constructed by Redrow Homes. The M&E contractor was tasked to value engineer the project by Redrow Homes and as a result, KGN Pillinger supplied the main five pump cold water booster set feeding all 4 buildings.
With 2 Million square feet of offices, shops and homes spread over 9 acres along with a major railway station attached, Ruskin Square lives up to its billing as one of London’s more spectacular developments. Another of the developments sanctioned under the East Croydon Masterplan, KGN Pillinger were asked by the appointed M&E contractor to assist with the design and supply of the cold water booster set and associated CAT5 booster sets.
In partnership with Regal Homes and the appointed sub-contractor, KGN Pillinger were awarded the contract to supply and install a number of the mechanical plant items required. Specifically, the order included the main cold water booster set, storage tank, the heat exchangers, HWS & CHW circulation pumps and the CAT5 booster set requirements.
Lisgar Terrace in Hammersmith and Fulham is an inter-war development that Southern Housing Group built in 1928 to provide homes for those who needed it the most. Last refurbished in 1970, the scheme has suffered from a long term lack of investment with building conditions deteriorating and not meeting current building regulations. Following the decision to fully overhaul the four buildings in phases, KGN Pillinger worked in partnership with Durkan and various consultant engineers to investigate the best location for the storage tanks and booster sets. It quickly became apparent there was inadequate plant room space to house the equipment so KGN Pillinger UPOD’s (packaged below ground plantrooms), were seen as the perfect solution to the problem.
Part of the prestigious Nine Elms development on the South Bank regeneration scheme in London, Embassy Gardens is considered the jewel in the crown. Located close to the Battersea Power Station re-development site, the area will soon be connected by two new tube stations. KGN Pillinger were successfully awarded the contract for the mains cold water booster set supplying the residential living space. Due to the considerable size of the development, the set consisted of six pump 22kw Booster set complete with 200mm 316L stainless steel manifolds.
