Now deep in the winter, as well as working to gain a number of planning permissions, 105 West are pressing ahead with a number of projects which have recently moved into the construction phases. These varied projects involve renovation, extension, alteration and new build works.
Suburban Residential Scheme
Planning permission has been gained for a nine unit residential development in east Bristol. Working closely with the property developer and a local planning consultant, permission was gained as a delegated decision at the first submission – meaning that permission was granted without the scheme being put forward to the planning committee.
Contemporary new build annexe
A planning application has been submitted for a contemporary annexe to an existing period property in central Bristol. It is anticipated that the annexe will provide workshop and studio space along with two additional bedrooms. The proposed annexe is to be a highly sustainable and energy efficient building.
Extension and alterations
Planning and conservation area consent is being sought for the extension and alteration of a period building comprising of commercial premises at ground floor level with accommodation above. The alterations and extension are designed to provide family accommodation, allowing the owner of the commercial premises to live in the same building as his business.
Prominent grade 2 listed building
Listed buildings consent has been gained for renovations and alterations to a substantial listed property. This project swiftly moved on to the building regulations stage with works now being carried out on site.
Projects under construction
A number of projects are currently under construction, as varying stages of the process. Two of the projects combine the refurbishment and alteration of large residential properties with each project also including new build extensions. The projects are very different, with one being in central Bristol and the other in rural South Gloucestershire.
Substantial alterations are being carried out to a large rural house involving internal rearrangement, external insulation of the building and extensive upgrading. A two storey extension is also being added to the rear of the house.
The urban house, an arts and crafts property, also involves some internal rearrangement as well as extensive upgrading. A single storey extension is being added to the rear of the house.
Construction of a new town house at the end of a terrace of grade 2 listed buildings has begun in the Clifton area of Bristol. The picture below shows the waterproofing of the basement structure, which is nearing completion. The construction is due to complete in July 2010.
