Finzels Reach is major £225m development for Bristol city centre, occupying 2.3ha of the Redcliffe conservation area, formerly occupied by a brewery. The scheme incorporates offices, leisure, retail, restaurants, 384 residential apartments and a microbrewery, maintaining the site connections.
Integrating the historic industrial buildings with new 21st century living spaces has involved major structural refurbishment works, the retention of existing facades and demolition and repair to an existing harbour wall, the restoration of medieval walkways and the construction of a new cycle and pedestrian bridge to connect the development to the city.
Clarkebond have provided a wide range of engineering consultancy services in connection with this development since 2004, involving extensive adjoining owners with buildings and structures comprising of an eight-storey tower apartment block and basement car park, five storey brewhouse, Georgian, Victorian and modern four/five storey office buildings, Victorian five-storey residential apartment block and two three-storey residential apartments, restaurant, retaining/boundary and floating harbour walls, lighting columns, car parks, courtyards and highways.
