F3 develop secured planning approval from Bristol City Council for a £60m student accommodation development in the Redcliffe area of Bristol in 2017. The existing Post-War office building was demolished and the new development started construction in 2019 providing a strategically located student hub serving the University of Bristol.
During the construction period F3 develop successfully forwarded the sale of the student accommodation scheme to one of DWS’ German real estate funds.
The student accommodation scheme in Central Bristol achieved practical completion in Quarter 4 2021.

The property is connected to the Bristol City’s District Heat Network as part of the overall sustainability strategy and has achieved a BREEAM Excellent rating for the building.
The project team included F3 develop as Development Manager, Farrans Construction as Main Contractor, GSS Architecture as Architects, WSP as Building Surveyors Engineer, Hydrock as Structural Engineer and Ensphere as BREEAM Consultants.
