Insite Energy is providing Guru Hub II pay-as-you-go (PAYG) smart meters for 894 new high-specification private rental apartments at Nine Elms Park in South London.
The new development covers two plots with a combined area of 2.67 acres within a site formerly owned by Royal Mail. Situated in the heart of the Vauxhall, Nine Elms and Battersea (VNEB) regeneration area, the project is expected to be completed in 2024, with the first homes available next year. Leading London-focused residential and mixed-use property developer Telford Homes is carrying out the construction on behalf of international real-estate groups Henderson Park and Greystar.
Insite has been serving Telford Homes with heat network services, including PAYG solutions, since 2013. Telford now specifies Insite to deliver Guru Hub II throughout its estate including on the new Nine Elms Park development, which is also the largest scheme within Insite’s growing portfolio.
Anthony Atkinson, Estates and Customer Service Director of Telford Homes, said, “The combination of Insite and Guru meets our needs around operator protection, data visibility and network efficiency, while also providing value for money over the lifecycle of the system. Insite gives both us and our residents consistently excellent customer service and they go the extra mile to evolve their solutions to match our requirements.”
The new development will offer 641,000 sq ft of residential space via a mix of studios, one, two and three-bedroom apartments. It will also include two rooftop swimming pools and 24,000 sq ft of gardens and retail and community space.
