Client:

Project Type:
New Development

Crouch Waterfall are currently working for the client on a scheme to develop the site of a former laundry and dye works in central Bristol. Set in a prominent location within the city, the 4 acre site remains vacant and derelict since the laundry ceased operation in 2007.

Due for completion in 2019 the scheme is to develop the brownfield site into mixed use space delivering 104 new high quality houses, including affordable homes with allocated car parking and 6,800 sq ft2 of commercial space. Plus new public open space including enlargement and improvement to Mina Park, new pedestrian routes
and improvements to surrounding road network.

The appointment covers structural, civil, geotechnical and geo-environmental consultancy aspects. Further to the planning stage we are currently assisting in preparing information on behalf of the client for the competitive tender phase of the works and in developing the super and sub-structure forms.

Crouch Waterfall also assisted the client through the, now completed, demolition phase of the scheme, completing early stage appraisals of existing structures to facilitate safe demolition, and inspections of structures to be retained during the demolition process. Fieldwork and reporting in relation to the geo-environmental issues on this brownfield site, as well as support to the client in preparing an outline remedial implementation plan.
