Contractor named for major Bristol office refit

Developer Bankfoot APAM has appointed Beard Construction for the transformative £24.5M redevelopment of Bristol’s One Friary building.

The flagship project is being delivered on behalf of Britannia Invest and is set to commence in April. Once complete, it will provide 7,400m2 of best-in-class office accommodation in the heart of the city’s Temple Quay.

One Friary, a well-established office building situated opposite Bristol Temple Meads Railway Station, will undergo a comprehensive redevelopment, adding three new floors on top of the existing structure and introducing a new high-performance GRC façade.

“This exciting project puts sustainability front and centre – the carbon savings through the reuse of the building’s existing structural frame will be significant. Drawing upon our extensive track record in sustainable redevelopment and our modern construction management skills, we are perfectly placed to deliver this project,” said Beard Construction Director Matt Cooper.

The project is set to achieve BREEAM ‘Outstanding’, as well as NABERS and WELL certification.

“One Friary is a prime example of our dedication to delivering sustainable workplaces, with this project in Bristol being one of a number of highly sustainable development schemes being delivered across the UK. We are hugely excited about the project and we believe it will be one of the best buildings to work in Bristol once finished,” said Chris Moore, Managing Director, Bankfoot APAM.
