About 9 months ago, Akelius purchased Sovereign Court from Dandi Space Limited as part of their major acquisition programme into the London market. Freshly refurbished, Sovereign Court offers a range of 97 single and double studio apartments in Hounslow town centre for rent.

The Alfa Laval relationship has enabled CEM to develop business with leading players in the district heating scheme arena – e.g. Engie, E.on and Mace. In addition, utilising Alfa Laval solutions to provide extremely efficient and cost-effective hot water solutions to a range of clients. In 2018 this includes a major refurbishment of Reddam School in Wokingham, St George’s Hill Golf Club in Weybridge and 22-23 Down Street, Mayfair. Work was completed a couple of months ago on the £1m refurbishment of the plants rooms across three large residential blocks in Eton College Road, NW3.

Akelius owns over 50,000 apartments globally. Properties are located in major urban cities with strong potential for growth including London, Paris, Berlin, Stockholm, and New York. The company was founded by Roger Akelius in 1994. Today, 90% of the company is owned by The Akelius Foundation; a registered charitable organisation and the largest global contributor to SOS Children’s Villages.

Contract Energy Management Limited was formed in 1993 and its two founding Directors are still running the company. For all of the company’s existence the core business has been looking after communal plant rooms like the ones serving this property..

CEM provide planned preventative maintenance contracts, remedial works and complete plant room refurbishments. On the latter we work closely with a range of M&E consultants and also offer a full Design & Build service. A more recent development has been CEM’s partnership with the global leading manufacturer of plate heat exchangers, Alfa Laval, who appointed CEM an Authorised Service Partner three years ago and more recently a Distributor of their HVAC products.
