This scheme is a joint venture with the Widcombe Social Club and involves the redevelopment of this former canal wharf site in the centre of Bath. The delivered product comprises a mixed-use scheme incorporating 40 student rooms, and a supermarket, which acts as an enabling development for the delivery of a new leisure club. Given the World Heritage status of the city, the scheme required significant planning interaction to arrive at a sympathetic solution that enhances the local area.
Regenerate an important, existing site in the centre of Widcombe Village in Bath so that it can be used for community activities and enjoyed by the local residents.
This has been a four-year long £5M development that comprises the demolition of the existing and outdated Widcombe Social Club. The concept of the project through to realization has taken a number of years, involving a close working relationship with the Widcombe Social Club. It is a mixed-use scheme providing 40 en-suite student beds, a supermarket and the delivery of a modern club facility on disused land towards the rear of the site.
This is a joint venture between Iesis as development managers and the Widcombe Social Club. We delivered the inception of the scheme plus planning application, appointment of professionals and contractors and securing local business input. We also arranged pre-letting the supermarket and oversaw the delivery and interface with the club for their new facility.
We adopted a stage delivery to suit the logistical and delivery issues experienced with a very busy corner plot right in the centre of the city. The existing building had significant issues with water ingress and asbestos and our proposal was to generate seed investment from which a new club could be delivered.
