Construction Enquirer News Construction starts on latest scheme for developer Cubex
Willmott Dixon is set to start above ground work on its third major scheme for developer Cubex in Bristol city centre.
The Halo scheme is being built on the site of Avon Fire and Rescue’s former headquarters.
Staggered over seven floors, it will provide 116,133 square foot of Grade A office space, with international legal firm Osborne Clarke already agreeing to take nearly two thirds of Halo in a pre-let deal earlier this year.
The contract win follows Willmott Dixon’s successful completion of the 95,000 square foot Aurora scheme in 2018 at Finzels Reach, followed by 194 ‘Build to Rent’ homes delivered adjacent to Aurora in 2019.
Peter Walford, Director at Cubex said, “We are delighted to be working with Willmott Dixon to deliver Halo.
“This is the fifth Grade A office building that we’ve developed in this area of Bristol and with each, we aim to raise the bar in terms of both design and innovation, an approach which has been rewarded by the quality of the tenants and investors we have been able to attract.”
John Boughton, Deputy Managing Director at Willmott Dixon said, “We are looking forward to once again working with Cubex Land, providing much needed office space, regeneration and opportunity to Finzels Reach.
“We are embracing the challenge of delivering one of the most sustainable office buildings in the UK.”
