The Willows

Client: Curo

Location: Lawrence Weston, Bristol

Overview: We are constructing this development on behalf of the housing association Curo, the scheme will consist of; a mix of one, two and three-bedroom houses and apartments delivered across three adjoining sites. The project will include the conversion of Curo’s former office building at Holly House into 13 apartments for social rent. These will be let to people over 55 and will feature assistive technology, such as personal alarms or memory aids, that can be tailored to the needs of the occupiers and enable them to stay in their homes for longer.

Another 25 homes for affordable rent and 19 houses for shared ownership will be newly constructed on the land of the former Long Cross Inn and Rockwell care home. We will also refurbish the existing block of 12 apartments at Holly House, which will benefit from external insulation, new windows and new electricity supplies. The improvements will help reduce heating bills and increase comfort for residents.

The development is due for completion Winter 2022.
