Construction work on Halo begins at Finzels Reach on Monday 11th May

Posted on May 11, 2020

Bristol developers Cubex have appointed construction firm Wilmott Dixon to deliver the next phase of Finzels Reach.

Demolition work to carefully remove the existing vacant buildings that previously housed Avon Fire and Rescue headquarters has now been completed. Now that the site is ready, the main construction work can begin on Halo, a leading-edge new office building for around 1,100 staff.

Wilmott Dixon delivered Finzels Reach, a much-praised and thriving new neighbourhood, which was initially created out of a derelict, brownfield city centre site on Bristol’s harbourside.

Wilmott Dixon has also provided pro bono support for East Street Mews, an affordable housing project for young homeless people in Bedminster, alongside others from the property and construction community. East Street Mews is the brainchild of Cubex, property industry charity LandAid and local charity Developing Health & Independence (DHI).

Gavin Bridge, executive director at Cubex, says: “We are pleased to be working with our trusted partner Wilmott Dixon as we continue the regeneration of this city centre area to deliver much-needed new homes and workspace to support the Bristol economy. We will be following all Government guidance issued to the construction industry in light of the current circumstances to ensure work is carried out safely.”
