Rund Partnership is assisting Abri (formally Radian and Yarlington Group) in expanding its development portfolio in Bristol, as we are commissioned as Employer’s Agent, Clerk of Works, and Principal Designer at The Old Brewery.
The 100% affordable housing development is being delivered by Abri, with McLaughlin & Harvey working as project contractor. The scheme involves the creation of 107 new homes, comprising a mix of one, two and three bedroom apartments and three bedroom houses – all split between shared ownership and affordable rent tenure. Seven commercial units will also be created, with additional works taking place to retain existing historical buildings on site. Various establishments, including the Brewery Manager’s House, will also be rebuilt.
Our role will be instrumental in ensuring all new buildings are built to the highest quality standards and complement the rich heritage and design of the site’s existing architecture. We will be involved in a broad scope of work, including managing contracts between Abri and McLaughlin & Harvey, implementing thorough quality control procedures, and ensuring all works adhere to strict health and safety requirements.
The scheme forms part of a burgeoning development market in one of the UK’s most desirable regional centres for property investment. In addition to its vibrant cultural scene, Bristol is home to one of the top ten UK universities in official league tables, as well as many high-net-worth industries which contribute to its thriving economy.
