Sigmat awarded contract for 107 affordable homes at Old Brewery in Bristol
Appointed by McLaughlin & Harvey, Sigmat have been awarded the high profile £2.3m scheme in Bristol.
This landmark project will regenerate the dis-used brewery site at Ashton Gate with new homes, co-working space and flexible commercial units.
This prominent site is at the end of a busy high street in Southville, Bristol, close to the iconic Tobacco Factory. Located on the site of the old 1820 Ashton Gate Brewery and Thomas Baynton’s Brewery.
Acknowledging the growing need for new homes in the City, the mixed-use scheme, which has been funded by a Homes England Grant, comprises of 94 new homes, of which 16 will be affordable, 9 shared ownership, and 7 for social rental. It will have a mix of 1,2 and 3-bedroom apartments, as well as 2 three-bedroom houses, secure parking for 41 cars, and storage for 202 bicycles. The development will have fully accessible communal and public areas which will help elevate the sense of community in the area.
Working alongside McLaughlin & Harvey, a heritage name in construction with 165-year history and offices in Northern Ireland and Scotland, Sigmat will deliver the structure for the 8-storey development.
The Sigmat team will commence on site Summer 2022 for a programme of 29 weeks.
We are thrilled that heritage brands such as McLaughlin & Harvey are embracing MMC and acknowledging its importance to the future of construction. Here at Sigmat we understand the huge benefits LGSF delivers in terms of speed of build, sustainability and project delivery so it is hugely rewarding to be involved with such well respected developer, on a high-profile scheme.
