The Wardian, London

One of the UK’s tallest residential projects engages Western Thermal Limited for insulation and heating works.

Developers of the Wardian London have contracted Western Thermal to carry out essential insulation and heating works at the extensive development in the Docklands area, East London. Upon its completion in 2019, the Wardian London is expected to be one of the tallest residential developments in London and the United Kingdom.

Western Thermal’s Thermal division is one of the country’s leading heating and ventilation insulation contractors. Its services meet the ever-increasing demands for both economic and environmental efficiency while meeting client specification and manufacturers’ recommendations, for both internal and external applications. At the Wardian, Western Thermal will provide the thermal & acoustic insulation, trace heating and fire protection services working with their main client Designer Group. The main developer at the Wardian Project is Eco World-Ballymore.

The project, based close to Canary Wharf, is a development which offers 766 apartments, retail, sky garden, gym, swimming pool and cinema complex; all set within two slim and tall residential towers, sitting side by side, opposite one of London’s most iconic and prestigious areas. This project will be managed out of the company’s London Office where they have an order value of £1.3m.  Wardian is in the midst of skyscrapers and beautiful waterways with modern architecture befitting of its reputation as a hub for some of the city’s most aspiring and trendy. The site will provide an oasis of homes and facilities which provide a sense of wellbeing and escape from the capital.

Speaking about the new contract, Michael Slater, Executive Operations Director for Western Thermal Limited said: “This is a very exciting opportunity for Western Thermal and to be able to get involved on the Wardian Project is testament to our 30 years of hard work and expertise. We are aware of the expectation to provide a service of the highest standard and we are confident that we will be able to contribute to the overall success of the project.”

This is the latest of a series of high-profile contracts for Western Thermal which has sealed its position of a pioneering market leader within the sectors it operates in. The division has contributed to numerous landmark projects including Heathrow Airport Terminal 5, Wembley Stadium, and Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham. More recently, it has installed thermal insulation at Battersea Power Station, London Victoria Station, and worked on the redevelopment of Bond Street Underground Station, along with a number of University of Leeds projects including the Worsley building and the Edward Boyle Library.
