Genlec has completed works at Hungate, a luxury residential scheme for key client Morgan Sindall as part of a major development in York City Centre.

The project includes four residential blocks, a multi storey car park and associated communal and plant spaces.  At six storeys high at its lowest point and up to eight at its highest, the development comprises 101 apartments including one, two and three bedroom variants.

Built around a central, landscaped courtyard and occupying a stunning position next to the River Foss and adjacent to a nature reserve, the development has been designed to nurture a sense of community with communal and shared spaces throughout.

M&E Works

Hungate’s contemporary apartments include LED lighting and mechanical ventilation throughout as well as underfloor heating to living rooms and bedrooms.  Bathrooms and en-suites have been provided with chrome towel rails, feature mirrors and highly specified sanitaryware/brassware.

Delivered over a 12 month period, Genlec designed, installed, tested and commissioned the complete package of MEP works.

Energy efficient solutions incorporated within the works included:

  • District heating system with high efficiency boiler plant to include CHP
  • Variable speed drives
  • LED lighting throughout
  • Automated lighting via a Dali network
  • Electric Vehicle Charging Points

A collaborative approach and a shared understanding of goals and vision by the project team enabled the firm to deliver an impressive scope of works under a particularly demanding programme.

“This was a large scale residential programme developed using modern applications across the building process including MEP. Our skilled in house team delivered all works directly supported by a trusted team of sub-contractors.”
