Mount Pleasant is a ‘Postmark’ development in the small district of Farringdon, Central London. The new development was originally the site of the Royal Mail sorting office.
This exciting project involves the construction of a mixed-use development which will include:
336 residential units,
Over 4,000 sqm office space
Over 1,400 sqm community space
Car and cycle parking and Public open space
The residential units are spread across 5 blocks, ranging from 3-11 storey buildings. The project has added complexity due to being constructed over a basement with complex structures of the existing underground postal tunnels.
The private & shared ownership residential units have been designed to achieve a BREEAM Very Good rating as well as a code for Sustainable Homes Level 4. With this, all products sourced for the construction is carefully reviewed to ensure that the completed homes meet the standards.
With every project, much thought and consideration is given to every single stage of the development, ensuring that the plans are safe and can accommodate all requirements. This was no exception for the Mount Pleasant project.
The project is on a strict deadline, with the housing development moving quickly to house residents into the new units by the end of 2023.
With installations moving along swiftly, the mechanical contractor, FG Mechanical required the products on site without delay.
