Contractor Wins Bristol Residential Project
9 Feb 21
Sweet Construct, a Bristol-based construction firm, has been appointed by Acorn Property Group to deliver the regeneration of Alliance House in Bristol City Centre.
Alliance House will be made up of a modern collection of high-quality starter homes, with 44 studio and one-bedroom apartments, along with commercial space on the ground and basement floors. The project is the latest regeneration site for Acorn’s Bristol region and follows several other schemes including Brandon Yard, which is opposite Brunel’s SS Great Britain, Loft House in Bishopston and Brooks Dye Works in St Werburghs.
Each home at Alliance House will be built to the highest quality specification and will feature open plan living spaces. There will also be bike storage for residents as well as a secure video-entry system.
Sweet Construct works throughout the region to deliver civils, construction and fit-out services over multiple sectors. Their latest appointment strengthens the company’s growing foothold in the residential sector.
Robin Squire, Regional Managing Director of Acorn’s Bristol office, commented: “Sweet Construct’s expertise in this sector is clear and we look forward to working with them to deliver this scheme, breathing new life into the historic building, creating apartments with a high-quality specification and modern design, well suited for First Time Buyers looking to get their foot on the property ladder, and for investors.”
Martyn Osborne, Joint Managing Director of Sweet Construct, added: “We are delighted to have been appointed to this scheme, especially in such a prominent city-centre location. Our experience in the sector means we are extremely well-placed to deliver and we hope it will be the start of an ongoing and mutually successful relationship with Acorn Property Group.”
Construction at the project site has already commenced and is set to complete by the end of 2021.
