Luxury lifestyle brand Kohler, a global leader in kitchen and bathroom product design which has its manufacturing base in Cheltenham, has been awarded a major contract to supply bathroom and kitchen products for a major new build-to-rent project at Wembley Park in London.
The 85-acre site, being developed by Quintain, forms the largest Kohler project of its kind in Europe, resulting in the supply of more than 55,000 individual components. The residential buildings will all be managed by Tipi, Quintain’s wholly-owned lifestyle-focused rental brand.
5,000 of the 7,500 homes being built at Wembley Park will be available for rent, making it the single largest Build to Rent development on a single site in the UK.
Over 4,200 bathrooms and a further 1,200 kitchens across the portfolio have been designed with high end Kohler products and the first properties will be coming to the market in 2020. Wembley Park, due for completion in 2027, is the largest residential contract Kohler has secured in Europe, adding to the company’s portfolio of large scale residential and hospitality projects around the globe.
Mary Kelly-Mannion, Head of Procurement for Quintain has been overseeing the bathroom and kitchen product selection: “We are delighted with the Kohler team’s innovative product designs. Working with Kohler has been a great experience because we have formed a partnership of mutual design understanding.”
As part of its partnership with Quintain, Kohler has custom-designed and manufactured a bathroom basin especially for Wembley Park.
“We are proud to partner with Quintain at Wembley Park,” says Jim Lewis, Vice President of Marketing, Kitchen and Bath Group at Kohler. “Kohler’s significant presence in the development is a result of global collaboration and expertise within our business from product design to manufacturing. We have appreciated the collaboration with Quintain and their design teams to bring the kitchen and bathroom designs to life with our innovative products.”
“The user experience has been front of mind in the design process including statement kitchen taps, comfortable baths and refreshing showers. Our team has worked hard to offer products that will enhance residents’ daily routines while also making luxurious statements that embody the character of Wembley Park.”
