Harris Associates show their commitment to sustainability with EV Charging units installation at a Prestigious London Development
Harris Associates is pleased to deliver eight Electric Vehicle charging units at the prestigious Eagle Wharf apartment building, which sits on the banks of the River Thames.
These innovative advanced Easee chargers were retrofitted to an existing parking system and show Harris Associates' commitment to assisting clients to improve their carbon footprint in a rapidly changing world. Working closely with Flowe, a leading supplier of the Easee intelligent electric vehicle charging solution and specialist building contractor A S Ramsay, Flowe installed the advanced Easee charger units onto the existing mechanical parking systems, on-time and on budget, to provide a high-quality, high performance charging solution for the apartments’ residents, adding value to the clients' asset, improving and future-proofing the development.
The Easee charger was specified by property management company Fry and Co, based on the system’s proven reliability and efficient hardware. Providing up to 22 kilowatts per charger, the system is 70% smaller and lighter than comparable systems and is connected in series, rather than conventional methods that require each unit to be wired to the mains supply. This process means that installation is much quicker, more cost-effective and sustainable even with customised chargers to maintain the length of the existing parking platforms.
The installation also included upgraded wifi connectivity along with Flowe’s customer-focused management software, which delivers a payment app for users that allows them to be charged on a ‘pay-as-you-go’ basis for the energy consumed.
The building owner or property manager also receives clear management information to effectively manage the chargers.
David Royal, Head of Building Surveying at Harris Associates said, “We are constantly looking for ways to add value and provide effective, sustainable solutions for our clients and these EV Charging units are a prime example of this. We were pleased to be able to deliver these units into a muti-occupancy building to satisfy our client’s current and future needs”
Harris Associates provides advice on the installation of and future-proofing for EV charging solutions across their projects and with the installation completed with ease as its namesake, the leading building and project consultancy believes that this could be the first of many installation collaborations that the company facilitates for its clients.
Andrew Smith, Flowe’s Managing Director, said: “With the rapid growth in electric vehicle ownership, many residential and commercial property owners are looking to fit chargers as an additional benefit and service for their building’s occupants. Our Easee chargers are amongst the most advanced on the market and deliver the perfect solution.”
