Kane has secured and been appointed by main contractor Gilbert Ash for a couple of M&E contracts. The building services specialist will deliver all the mechanical, electrical and plumbing installations at the Canalside project of the Sheerwater estate in Woking.
This project in Surrey is being built for ThamesWey Development. The Red phase that comes under the first of the two phases will take 11 months to complete. Next to it is the Yellow phase that will take approximately 16 months to complete.
The total value of both phases is £15m. Both phases consist of 292 dwellings which include mews houses, flats, maisonettes, community centre, elderly care units, nursery and retail space. Both phases will have prefabricated utility cupboards installed.
Kane will design, build and install substations, an energy centre, sprinklers, rainwater drainage, smoke ventilation, underfloor heating, building management systems, sanitary ware, security systems, fire alarms, general and emergency lighting systems.
The facilities at the construction also include all general and small power installations. Kane manufactures cupboards at its plant in Northern Ireland, along with a prefabricated energy centre for the Red Phase to serve multiple phases on the project via an underground district heating network.
