Watkin Jones Group and Fresh have partnered with Samsung Electronics (UK) Limited on an innovative long-term partnership. Samsung will provide a range of technologies for multiple projects and will offer exclusive discounts to Fresh residents.

As part of the partnership, Samsung will provide domestic appliances across refrigeration, cooking and laundry – as well as air source heat pumps.

“Watkin Jones Group is pleased to partner with Samsung to allow our projects and clients to stay at the forefront of technological advances, whether this be with energy efficient heating and hot water generation, cooling solutions, or with high quality smart technology appliances for residents. We are proud to deliver the highest quality innovative accommodation and partnering with Samsung will be of great benefit to our clients and residents as well as to Watkin Jones Group, both now, and, in the future.”

Watkin Jones has already collaborated with Samsung Electronics Air Conditioner Europe B.V. (SEACE) on a PBSA development in Colchester, which incorporates Samsung air source heat pumps.

The partnership with award-winning third-party operator Fresh will see Samsung offer its residents a range of exclusive discounts and offers across a variety of Samsung appliances and technology.

“This partnership demonstrates the commitment of Watkin Jones Group to deliver homes that are focused on creating dynamic living spaces that are future fit.  When paired with Samsung’s innovative technologies that can drive energy efficiency and make smart living seamless, we’re able to provide the full package. We are particularly proud of our turn-key solutions which give our partners bespoke support from start to finish.”
