Polyteck Group, a leading construction and facilities management business, has secured a contract to deliver hard services at the ground-breaking £250m+ Stratford Skyscraper development in Stratford, E20.
Located between Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and Stratford International, Stratford Skyscraper is a new 42-storey mixed use tower designed by high-rise architect specialists SOM (Skidmore, Owings & Merrill).
The Stratford Hotel and skyscraper will comprise of 248 apartments, a 146-bedroom five-star hotel, three sky gardens and two restaurants, when it completes later this year.
The tower’s unique structure embraces green space and fresh air to foster a dynamic community of residents and hotel guests.
London’s historic garden squares have been reimagined and carved into the form of the building at 95, 280 and 400 feet – delivering panoramic views of the city skyline.
A triple-height lobby acts as a social hub, featuring a restaurant, bar and open piazza leading out to Stratford International. Custom-made facilities include a state-of-the-art gym, spa and cinema.
Polyteck was appointed for its extensive engineering expertise to provide mechanical & electrical services to residents and commercial units within the 143m (469ft) double-cantilevered structure. M&E services have already commenced on the project.
The deal further solidifies Polyteck’s position in the high-end residential market. Earlier this year, the UK-based company was awarded a multi-million pound five-year contract to provide a range of FM services at Beach Tower, a 34-storey luxury residential tower in the Qatari capital Doha.
Neil Wheadon, operations director, at Polyteck, said: “We are thrilled to be a part of this exciting new development, which promises to bring next generation loft living to a thriving part of the capital.
“We are fast becoming recognised as the ‘go to’ company for high-end residential properties and our appointment is testament to our ability to deliver the quality and services levels that a scheme like Stratford Skyscraper undoubtedly deserves.”
