Hive Group are working with the London Borough of Ealing to provide a range of MEP & Energy services in respect of their proposed estate regeneration in the London Borough of Ealing, London.

This unique regeneration will consist of once complete:

  • 750no New Homes
  • 250no Refurbished Homes
  • New Community and Retail Facilities
  • Improved Car Parking
  • Improved Security
  • Regenerated 1km Long Estate

Our initial works were to provide a due diligence exercise on Phase 1 (Worcester Court) of the scheme, essentially stewarding the original design consultant’s work. Further works included design & build performance services (Stages 1-3+) to tender stage of Phase 2 (Copley North) and Phase 4 (Copley Central). Our further appointments on this scheme include;

  • RIBA Stages 1-6 on Phase 3 (Warwick Court) on behalf of the Client
  • RIBA Stages 4-6 on Phase 4 (Copley Central) on behalf of the Main Contractor
  • RIBA Stages 1-6 on Phase 5 (Copley Court) on behalf of the Client
  • Further works to the scheme include the construction of a scheme wide District Heating Network which will be adopted to serve Phases 6 & 7 in the future, with current feasibility work being undertaken by SCMS for extension into Phase 5.
  • All new build and existing premises completed and in progress will incorporate the following services;
  • Centralised LTHW Plantroom’s serving HIU’s in each dwelling
  • Future DHN provision
  • Whole house mechanical ventilation heat recovery (MVHR) in each dwelling
  • External services
  • New fire detection systems
  • New dry riser installations
  • New CCTV and Access Control systems

A specific challenge encountered was due to the phasing of the development, and the differing inputs of various different design teams on multiple phases, SCMS ensured that despite multiple variations of Employers Requirements, a standardization of specified M&E plant was maintained throughout the wider scheme, to ensure that the Client and their Asset Management teams were aware of what equipment was installed and when it required maintenance, allowing a level of product standardisation across the wider scheme.
