Combining new build with the existing Victorian fa├žade, Redcliff Quarter has created high quality apartments adjoining the city centre of Bristol.

Located within a conservation area, the first phase of development consisted of mix of 114 one and two bedroom apartments over four blocks, as well as 14 duplexes and a three-bed penthouse. An additional 118 apartments are currently under construction as part of phase two.

Extensive ordnance-checking and substantial archaeological exploration were undertaken with findings discovered including medieval remains dating back to 1123. At that time this area of Bristol was inhabited by the Knights Templars as well as the nearby district of Temple Quarter.

The roof areas partially incorporate green roofs and terrace areas for recreation, while the other areas are of blue roof construction, a new method of attenuating rainfall which is then gradually reduced to avoid excessive pressure onto the drainage network.

Directly adjoining the site are existing buildings which present some challenges such as noise and disruption, vibration, over-sailing rights. Vibration monitoring devices are fitted into building around the site which are continuously monitored for any undue vibration from site activities.
