County Durham manufacturer secures London project
A County Durham manufacturer is bolstering its capital city credentials with another project win in London.
Apex Wiring Solutions secured an order to supply a full modular wiring system and components to the prestigious “The Forge” development in the City of London. This is in addition to 12 other urban regeneration across the capital.
The Forge will be the first Net Zero Carbon project that developer Landsec has delivered. The two buildings, in Sumner Street, are 90,000 sq ft and 40,000 sq ft, and deliver a public realm to the surrounding area. In total, Apex will deliver over 10,000 components and over 70,000 metres of cable to the project.
Apex Wiring Solutions sales director, Paul Hopps, said: “For the last 20 years, Apex has been building an excellent reputation for designing, developing and delivering bespoke, modular wiring systems for some of the most significant regeneration schemes in the capital.
“The Forge is another genuinely exciting, environmentally sympathetic, and ultra-modern project of this type.
“Apex products perfectly complement Landsec’s ground-breaking work to deliver the entire development as a zero-carbon project. Our wiring solutions arrive, ready-cut, with near-zero waste and our “plug and play” principles of safety, simplicity and speed – aid installation with minimum time and effort and in the safest possible way.”
Paul continued: “Our cities’ skylines are full of cranes, which are a clear sign of progress and growth – Apex is working on projects from Aberdeen to London, Manchester to Sunderland and it is really great to see industry and the construction sector bouncing back after the turmoil of the last 20 months.”
The Forge is two new-build commercial office buildings, constructed around an internal courtyard accessible to the public. It will be nine storeys with a reception and basement and deliver a sustainable building with improved streetscape and public realm.
It uses a hybrid steel and concrete structural platform that will provide the chassis for the office floor space. The project will include development of cladding and building services components to create a reusable kit-of-parts-based solution for offices.
Apex Wiring Solution is partnering with the NG Bailey specialist offsite team for the project.
