Number One Bristol Completion

number_one_bristolThe repurposing of a 1970s built office building into a high quality mixed use development.

We are pleased to announce the successful completion of Number One Bristol. The scheme incorporates two wings containing 148 apartments, a resident sky garden on the 8th floor (the UK’s highest straw bale building), social space, gymnasium, office space and potential retail/restaurant. The 15-storey west wing contains duplex penthouse apartments, which have an unrivalled view of the city below. We delivered this £19 million design and build contract in 72 weeks, working closely with our design team and stakeholders to ensure the integrity of the high quality concept was delivered through the construction phase. We overcame many of the logistics, sequencing and technical challenges inherent in the refurbishment of tall buildings and are delighted with the product we have delivered.

PG Group Director, Stuart Gaiger said: “We have been impressed with Bray & Slaughter, in particular their quality of workmanship and attention to detail”.
