Currie & Brown engaged on major regeneration scheme in Bath
30 October 2017
Currie & Brown is providing full cost consultancy services on Roseberry Place, a major mixed-use regeneration scheme in Bath's enterprise zone.
The scheme for this three-acre riverside brownfield site will be completed in two phases. Construction of the first phase, the residential apartments, commenced at the start of 2017 with the demolition of the existing industrial buildings, asbestos removal, UXO probing and site levelling in preparation for the main construction works.
Spring Wharf, the residential scheme, comprises three buildings rising to a maximum of six storeys. It features 171 one- and two-bed apartments and 15,800ft² for retail use, together with associated external works and S278 works. The scheme, which is owned and funded by Legal & General, includes provision for build-for-rent affordable housing.
Currie & Brown's Trevor Essex, regional director, stated: "Due to its high-quality specification, Roseberry Place will be among the most environmentally friendly and sustainable buildings in central Bath."
The Bath City Riverside Enterprise Zone has been designated as a key area for economic development by the West of England Local Enterprise Partnership and comprises a number of key riverside development sites across approximately 98 hectares. These sites will provide major regeneration and development opportunities for Bath, supporting cultural and leisure facilities as well as delivering contemporary commercial accommodation and new homes.
