Aberla-6m-M&E-win-contract

Aberla will start work this month on the project which is scheduled for completion by the end of 2019.

Local Blackfriars will consist of two towers containing 380 apartments, townhouses and top floor penthouses, plus a gym, café, cinema, launderette, a landscaped piazza area and commercial accommodation on the ground floor.

It is the second successful partnership between Aberla and Domis following the renovation of the famous Black Friar pub earlier this year.

M&E works will include full heating and electrics, including lighting, air-conditioning, ventilation systems, security and fire, throughout the entire scheme.

A 30kWp roof mounted solar PV system will be installed to assist in reducing communal energy costs and carbon savings.

Mark Ingham, Operations Director at Aberla said: “This impressive scheme further develops our residential M&E portfolio and we’re thrilled to be working with Domis again to continue our relationship.

“The business has gone from strength to strength over the past six months and winning this scheme rounds off a really positive end to the year”.

Lee McCarren, Domis Managing Director, said “Following a significant tender period we are delighted to announce the appointment of Aberla as M&E contractor due to the team’s experience, confident approach and can-do attitude.

“The construction works at Local Blackfriars are already progressing at pace and this M&E appointment continues to push forward the next phase of works on site”.
