Chobham Manor, Stratford, UK
The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park development is a blueprint for major change across east London. Over the next 20 years, 6,800 homes will be built in this area.
Chobham Manor is the first of five neighbourhoods in London’s newest urban park. It comprises 850 homes, community facilities, shops and 1,500 square metres of publicly accessible open space with a landscaped central green and an outdoor play area.
Both the kitchen and bathrooms in Chobham Manor’s apartments make these properties incredibly desirable. The bathroom and kitchen both feature contemporary, minimalist look with beautiful chrome and steel finishes, creating an aesthetically pleasing design.
With multiple apartments built over a small footprint, Elmech Ltd, the M&E contractor at Chobham Manor knew that the first fix installation of pipes, valves and fittings for plumbing and heating would be a challenge. So, they opted for a range of reliable and easy to install JG Speedfit push-to-connect fittings and JG Layflat pipe, along with Reliance Valves 315I Series of Pressure Reducing Valves (PRVs).
What made this range of 28mm PRVs so attractive is the fact that they are a sustainable option to achieve an overall reduction in the apartments’ water consumption. They are designed to cut down the amount of water that pass through a pipe by reducing the water pressure throughout the system, helping the development achieve a higher BREEAM rating.
Alongside this, the flats also benefit from JG Underfloor Heating, which features the ultra flexible JG Layflat pipe, push-to-connect manifolds, and JG Aura smart heating controls. Hidden from sight, underfloor heating creates a comfortable living space, helps reduce heating bills and maintains a consistent temperature throughout the property by eliminating cold spots.
