Winter 2009/2010 Update

The majority of 2009 was a difficult period for the construction industry as a whole, with the recession having a major impact on all private development. Despite the problems of the market place, 105 West have maintained and consolidated their position within the Bristol area.

Commercial
105 West have gained planning and listed buildings permissions for the conversion of a substantial grade 2 listed villa from commercial offices to a day nursery. This project in Clifton required sensitive adaptation of the existing building and restoration of some original features as well as highways alterations in the area of the access to the site.
105 West have also submitted the building regulations application. Works are about to commence on site.

Urban Regeneration
A run down large former public house in central Bristol is to be converted to residential use. This project is currently in the feasibility stage with the size of the project yet to be defined. However, it is likely the development will be in the region of 50 bedrooms, split over a number of residential units with a substantial new build element.

Domestic
A history of difficulties gaining permission to carry out alterations to a grade 2 listed property on the outskirts of Bristol prompted the house owner to contact 105 West. Listed buildings consent has been gained for first floor alterations to the rear of the property.

Sheltered Housing
This project has moved from a feasibility study to the final stages of preparation for a planning submission for 8 sheltered housing units. The proposed development is within registered Park and Garden situated in a conservation area, adjacent to a large property used as a nursing home. Informal pre-application discussions with the local authority and the Garden Historic society have informed the nature of the proposed development. The proposed development is a combination of a traditional central structure reflecting the historic development of the site, with visually light contemporary additions.
