The legendary Highbury stadium has been converted into 860 apartments. The North Bank and Clock End stands have been demolished, with the famous clock moved to the new Emirates Stadium. The exteriors of the listed Art Deco East and matching West Stand are being preserved and incorporated into the new developments. The pitch will become a communal garden for the residents.
JG Speedfit has been selected for the hot and cold water plumbing in every unit. The specification required a product that offered fast installation, reliability and innovation; whilst offering undoubted quality. There was only one place they could turn. Phil Miller from NG Bailey commented: “The Speedfit Team were brilliant from initial enquires to specification they were supportive and collaborative throughout the whole process” Along with many of the Arsenal players, Arsene Wenger has already secured himself a luxurious apartment.
WELLS HEAD COTTAGE
JG Speedfit’s Plumbing and Underfloor heating systems have been installed in a prestigious extension in the Home Counties by W.L.F Plumbing and Heating Ltd. The Wells Head Cottage renovation is an addition to the original listed building.
The installation of both plumbing and heating is across two floors, downstairs the extension will add a new kitchen, utility room, and walkway between the existing and new building, while the upstairs of the extension will be a master bedroom with ensuite.
The majority of the plumbing in the new extension was in the kitchen and ensuite. Due to the flexibility of the pipe it was easy for the contractor to cable the pipe through the joists to the take off points saving time, by reducing the number of joins required.
Once all the pipe work was installed it was pressure tested as is recommended in the Speedfit literature; 2 bar for 10 minutes and 10 bar for 10 minutes.
During the second fix JG Speedfit Hand tighten flexi hoses were used to connect to the faucets. This meant that connecting to threads in tight spaces was quick and easy, as the fitting only requires hand tightening, removing the need for tools.
