NG Bailey has won a £13m luxury apartment contract, as it looks to expand into the high-end residential sector.

The Ilkley-based firm will complete a full mechanical, electrical and public health installation at the 190 Strand property.

NG Bailey plans to bid for more luxury residential work as an increasing number of projects are up for grabs. There are 200 proposed developments in London alone in the next five years.

David Hurcomb, chief executive at NG Bailey, said the high-end residential market is seeing “exponential growth”.

“The solutions we offer are perfect for these environments where developers are ‘building’ in dense city locations, with tight build timeframes,” he said.

“Our strategy to focus on the residential market comes as we look ahead to the growth driving the market.”

Developer St Edward Homes is creating 200 luxury flats at the 190 Strand property, located minutes from the Thames in Central London.

NG Bailey has proposed a system that reduces traffic to and from the site, in order to limit its impact on the “live environment” around the apartment block.

Operations director Mark King said it means reduced installation time and fewer on site workers.

“What a fantastic project to have on our books, one that we are proud to be associated with,” he added.
