The South Quay Plaza development comprises three towers, the tallest standing at 68 storeys high.
Residential Energy Metering Contract
Insite Energy has been selected to install and service pre-paid metering at the new South Quay Plaza luxury residential development in Canary Wharf.
Part of the ongoing redevelopment of the London Docklands, the 628-property site represents a flagship project for developer, Berkeley Homes Southeast London (BHSEL).
The development has been designed by renowned architects Foster + Partners and comprises of three towers, the tallest of which (Valiant Tower) is 68-storeys. The first residents moved in during the summer of 2020, with the next phase of move-ins expected in 2022.
When completed, the site will provide hundreds of five-star luxury homes to city workers, with residents granted exclusive membership of The Quay Club and access to 24-hour concierge services.
Heat network specialist, Insite Energy, will be installing and commissioning Guru Hub II prepayment meters for heat, hot water, and cooling over the next two to three years as construction progresses, with a one-year rolling contract for metering and billing services also part of the agreement.
The company has a working history with BHSEL, with both companies having collaborated on various projects since 2011, including the Saffron Square development in Croydon, London, which comprises almost 800 residencies.
At South Quay Plaza, approximately 12 per cent of residencies will be managed by shared ownership provider, Legal & General, with POD Management Ltd responsible for looking after the remaining properties. Insite Energy will work closely with both organisations.
To ensure residents and property managers are smoothly and successfully set up with the Guru system, Insite Energy’s onboarding and client services teams have provided product demonstrations, residential surgeries, and bespoke one-to-one sessions as part of the move-in process. Insite Energy has also provided bespoke support to BHSEL, Legal & General and POD Management, particularly in overcoming challenges surrounding South Quay Plaza’s phased occupations.
The completed development, which also incorporates 2.6 acres of landscaped gardens, will represent an important milestone as the Docklands area continues to develop.
Emily Lister, Head of Business Development for Insite Energy, comments: "We're very proud to contribute to the South Quay Plaza landmark development and to partner again with Berkeley Homes Southeast London.
"The accommodation provided by this development is second to none, and as a key resident touchpoint, the service provided by the Insite customer experience team will more than match expectations."
