As one of the largest brownfield regeneration projects in the south west, Bath Western Riverside comprises approximately 70 acres of land west of the city centre adjoining the river Avon. The project is a major opportunity for Bath to deliver a platform for the city’s future economic and social prosperity.

The project partnership of Bath and North East Somerset Council, South West Regional Development Agency and Crest Nicholson shares a common vision for a world class, comprehensive scheme based on the principles of sustainability. It will integrate public transport with a high-quality, high-density, mixed-use development providing new homes, leisure and work spaces for the city, along with employment, learning and lifestyle opportunities.

BuroHappold has been appointed by Crest Nicholson to provide sustainability advice, planning, transportation, engineering and environmental services. The scheme proposals have targetted the inclusion of 10% on-site renewable energy generation and an “Excellent” Ecohomes rating.

Other services being supplied by BuroHappold include the environmental impact assessment for flooding and hydrology, structural design, bridge design, utilities, ground conditions and remediation, drainage (including ‘SUDS’ techniques) and access roads.
