Environment First

In line with Bristol’s campaign to cut carbon emissions across the city, the residents at Castle Park View will have access to 490 cycle spaces compared with just 35 car parking spaces. Similarly, Castle Park View will be the first private development to be connected to Bristol’s heat network, providing heat to the building via hot water from the Avonmouth Waste to Energy Plants, contributing to Bristol’s 2030 Net Zero carbon aims.

A Historic Site

Castle Park View lies in an archaeologically sensitive site close to the heart of medieval Bristol, within the environs of the medieval castle. Prior to commencement of works on site, and in line with planning condition requirements, Linkcity worked with the stakeholders to commission an archaeological dig to locate the existing dry ditch between the castle site and the river. During excavation works, an archaeology officer was also tasked with identifying any finds of interest. For example, during groundworks operations, our site team discovered a historic wall. We ceased work in the area to allow the appointed archaeology officer to assess the wall for historic importance. This was dated to the 17th century and deemed of no significant interest thus allowing the works to continue.

Building in a Busy City Centre

Given its proximity to the main A4044 road, Cabot Circus shopping centre and nearby offices, the development of Castle Park View has presented a complex set of constraints and considerations. In line with Bristol City Council’s usual planning requirements, Linkcity again worked closely with all those involved to produce a comprehensive Construction Management Plan, which detailed all aspects of our construction methodology including safety and traffic management.
