Area: 65,000 ft²

Status: Completed


Over the last five years Bay Associates have established a track record of successfully delivering Extra Care schemes. This project for Hanover Housing represents one of the three for the same client in this period with the other two situated in Portishead and Lyddington Road, Bristol.

The Downend project was completed on site in 2011 and was constructed from traditional masonry on trench fill foundations. A beam and block floor was also specified.

A successful flood defence consent application was made to the Environment Agency (EA) to permit a considerate discharge of surface water to the receiving watercourse.

Site levels had to be carefully considered as a portion of flood plain volume was being utilised by the building footprint. This had to be agreed with the EA prior to commencement of works.
