This project involved the conversion and extension of two buildings, Huller House and the Cheese Warehouse, which occupy a prime riverside location in the centre of Bristol.
Huller House is Grade II listed, while the Cheese Warehouse has been identified as a building of special architectural merit due to its unique Hennebique reinforced concrete structure. These buildings had been vacant for over 20 years and had fallen into disrepair.
The buildings, adjacent to the Floating Harbour on Redcliff Backs, were redeveloped to provide 50 high-quality apartments and a commercial unit. The development comprises five floors of one, two and three bedroom apartments converted from the existing warehouse, with an extra two floors of new-build development to the Cheese Warehouse and a single new-build level to Huller House. The basement of Huller House also includes 166m2 of commercial office space.
We also constructed a new publically accessible covered walkway on the Floating Harbour, which completes the eastern riverside pedestrian route from Bristol Bridge to Redcliffe Bridge. We also constructed new changing facilities for members of Bristol Cruising Club, who have moorings on the pontoons adjacent to the building.
The project is located in the heart of Bristol city centre; 85% of the labour force employed on the project comes from the local, area, and the project achieved a Considerate Constructors score of 42/50.
