Kingfield Heath, Birmingham B12
Kingfield Heath is a large, urban residential redevelopment project located in Digbeth East of Birmingham City, less than 1 mile from the Bullring. It supports the wider City’s ongoing regeneration plan. Keady Construction (part of the OHOB Group) appointed Link365 (working in partnership with AIS) as the main mechanical and electrical contractor.
Link365’s Birmingham team were responsible for the design and build. The project comprises of 237 apartments over 8 floors, plus a residential amenity space.
With a vast project such as this, our build approach saw the team pre-preparing as many of the elements in advance as was possible. The team install a single benchmark of every element, which is quality checked and signed off by the client. This blueprint is then replicated and rolled out across the build meaning that the quality and installation is perfect every time.
The public health services, apartment cylinder cupboards, building tank room, ventilation and rainwater solutions have been managed and carried out by Link365.
The development, which is close to city centre amenities and numerous railway stations, will benefit from an extension of the Midland Metro Tram and HS2, features:
- 237 apartments
- Entrance lobby
- Residential amenity
- Manager’s office
- Letting / meeting room
For this design-build project, Link365 was responsible for managing and integrating the mechanical requirements, as well as delivering, installing, testing and commissioning the mechanical and public health services.

Millbrook Park, London NW7
Joseph Homes’ Millbrook Park development was short-listed for Development of the Year at the RESI Awards in 2021. Link365 was engaged as the mechanical contractor.
Joseph Homes is committed to delivering healthier, more sustainable homes. One of their key Live Well goals is to create virtually toxin-free homes. Link365 installed MVHR (Mechanical Ventilation and Heat Recovery) systems in every home and apartment. Which use filters to remove stale air and pollen from the entire house while providing fresh, filtered air to each room. Every homeowner would then benefit from the increased air quality.
In addition, Joseph Homes aim was to reduce reliance on the electrical grid and fossil fuels, by installing solar panels on the roof and fitting low-energy lighting throughout the buildings. These are just a few of the mechanical and electrical installations that are making a positive impact on the end-user’s lifestyle and the planet.
Link365 also installed underfloor heating, public health services, dry risers, and the building management system, as well as the building plant room.
The development consists of 4 apartment blocks, comprising 116 residential flats featuring:
- 1 and 2 bedroom apartments and 3 and 4 bedroom houses
- A few minute’s walk from Mill Hill East underground
- The perfect balance of modern London living
- Surrounded by parks and open spaces
- A 20-minute tube journey to the city
- Uniquely crafted, immersed in history
Link365 provided a range of mechanical services at Millbrook House, including insulation, and ventilation, as well as providing hot and cold water services. The mechanical services for this project, including testing and commissioning, were also conducted by Link365. For this Joseph Homes project, the team coordinated and managed this complete, sustainable installation by putting their knowledge, skills, and expertise into action.
Link365 was engaged in a high-specification project in Central London. This project was a highly specialised mechanical services project, seeing Link365 install individual gas pipe in pipe system for a Residential Building project.
This project saw our mechanical engineers fit over 11,000 meters of gas pipes to service 96 luxury apartments. At the height of the project, Link365 had 25 qualified welders and pipe-fitters on site at peak.
All our engineers were required to have nuclear experience as the specification needed to meet nuclear welding standards. NDT Testing and X-ray inspection was carried out throughout the duration of the project.
At Church Road for Galliard Homes Link365 was the main mechanical engineering contractor. The project comprised 48 high-spec apartments and townhouses.
Church Road is located on a corner site with Tallack Road and Church Road in front of it. This development, which is a part of the Help to Buy Scheme, intends to contribute back to the community. The townhouses and flats have a number of amenities, including:
- New-build development in London’s Zone 3
