Canary Wharf, London

Leading Pod Manufacturers Elements Europe have been awarded a £8.4 million contract to manufacture and deliver 1114 bathroom pods for Wood Wharf J1/J3 development in Canary Wharf, London.

The project is being developed by Canary Wharf Group (CWG), using Canary Wharf Contractors as the Main Contractor. The J1/J3 scheme designed by project architects GRID Architects is the third build-to-rent (BTR) tower scheme for Wood Wharf. Adding to the vibrant mixed-use neighbourhood, Wood Wharf J1/J3 will provide two residential towers of 49 and 34 storeys each with a mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom flats, accompanied by ancillary and retail. The scheme will be situated by the waterfront, along the north bank of South Quay. The BTR apartments will be operated by CWG’s residential leasing arm, Vertus and will be aimed at an intermediate rental level.

Elements Europe have a number of large projects in the pipeline and offer clients performance certainty in today’s challenging economic conditions with the backing of leading global construction firm, GS Engineering & Construction (GS E&C). Based in the Midlands, Elements Europe is ideally placed for projects throughout the UK and has a number of pod production lines to cope with increasing demand generated by a dedication to quality over the last 17 years in business.

“We are thrilled to be involved in such a large and prestigious project with our bathroom pod solution that results in faster delivery of housing to the UK market. Clients including Canary Wharf Group are recognising the benefits of offsite construction in terms of time, cost, quality, safety and reduced carbon consumption with less waste and fewer deliveries to congested sites. Just as important in today’s economic environment is investment by the likes of Canary Wharf Group in using UK based manufacturers providing jobs and support to the wider UK economy, supporting the Governments Levelling Up agenda by committing to manufacture in the Midlands.” commented Kevin Arthur, Head of Sales for Elements Europe.
