Works are now well underway at Audley Living’s latest retirement village on the former Redwood Lodge site in Failand, Bristol. Working for principal contractor Balfour Beatty, Complete Carpentry Contractors are carrying out all aspects of carpentry works on the new build project which consists of 126 luxury retirement cottages and apartments and associated communal areas. The village includes a restaurant, bar bistro, library, swimming pool, gym and beauty spa and is set in 15 acres of parkland, just outside Bristol.
We began works today on our latest project in Bristol. The new build development in the grounds of Butler House, St. George, is part of Bristol City Council’s New Build Housing programme which began in March 2015. The programme is a two year initiative to build approximately 100 new properties in the city to bolster the council’s housing stock. It’s our first project for Oxford based ART Contracts who have been appointed by the Council as the Principal Contractor.
The development consists of two x two bed bungalows, one four bed house and three x three bed houses. They are being built on the site of garages in the grounds of Butler House, a Bristol City Council sheltered housing scheme. It’s one of seven developments across the city to be built in the first phase of the New Build Housing programme and it’s due to be completed in the next few months.
Our site-supervisor Nick Jones is managing the carpentry works on the ground. Our works include the installation of eco-floor joists and chipboard floors, construction of truss roofs and all aspects of first, second and final fixes.
