John Perkins Construction has commenced work at Dockside Apartments, a brand-new development of 13 apartments for Simon James Homes.
The sleek, modern development of flats is set to bring to life a formerly dead space adjacent to Wapping Wharf in Bristol Harbourside. It is due for completion in autumn 2023.
JPC, as Principal Contractor, is working closely with Oxford Architects, KB2 Consulting Engineers, and MDA Consulting on this project. What is currently a derelict scrap of brownfield land will be transformed into an important new addition to the Harbourside skyline.
Simon James Homes specialises in building quality individually-designed homes in desirable locations using local and skilled individuals. The apartments will be spread over six floors, with a below-ground car park. The superstructure of the building will be composed of a steel frame, with an infill system. The finished building will boast a varied façade, of brick, render, metal, and cement board cladding.
Simon Crocker, Managing Director, Simon James Homes, comments: “It’s fantastic to break ground at Dockside Apartments and start work on a stunning new addition to the thriving Harbourside area of Bristol. This is an extremely well-considered development, and we’ve already been working with John Perkins Construction for more than a year to ensure the development can stand proud amid the Harbourside skyline.”
Rupert Perkins, Managing Director, John Perkins Construction, comments: “John Perkins Construction has worked on many Bristol landmarks over the last 30 years, including the restoration of nearby Underfall Yard. For this project, we’ve put together a team with a broad depth of experience in constructing best-quality high-rise residential units. We’re able to draw on our values of open, honest, collaborative working to deliver something special within our hometown of Bristol.”
