    We are proud to be recognised by these local Awards:

    Across the Region


    Dove Lane Property Development

    Advising Places for People Homes Limited developing a brownfield site known as Dove Lane in Bristol, the final development includes 250 homes, public realm space and commercial/retail space. This will provide homes to support the city's rapid development as a regional hub whilst supporting existing communities by providing affordable homes. We have advised on the procurement process, as well as drafting and advising on the construction documentation.

    Huntspill Energy Park

    We advise Sedgemoor District Council on a Section 106 Agreement to deliver the infrastructure requirements for Huntspill Energy Park, which is a 635 acre brownfield site proposed for 222 acres of energy generation and mixed employment uses. The Park was approved in the 2017 Autumn Statement as a new enterprise zone, placing the site within a small group of nationally significant centres for growth.

    Selwood Housing

    We advise Trowbridge-based Selwood Housing on Property, Housing Management/Litigation and Finance matters. Selwood Housing Group is a group of companies that work towards the collective aim of improving homes and communities, and Selwood Housing is a not-for-profit housing association with over 6,000 homes available for rent at affordable prices in Wiltshire, Somerset, and Bath & North East Somerset.

    Northern Devon Waste PPP

    We advised Devon County Council on the completion of a major residual waste treatment PPP project, involving the construction of a new Waste Acceptance Facility near Barnstaple and treatment of 45,000 tonnes per annum of residual waste at the Severnside Energy Recovery Centre (SERC) near Bristol. The PPP contract was signed with Suez Recyling and Recovery Limited in 2018. 

    Royal United Hospitals Bath NHS Trust

    We have worked with the Royal United Hospital Bath NHS Trust for a significant number of years by their side, providing commercial, workforce, regulatory and property advice, including the recent sale of the Mineral Hospital of the city.

    Great Western Air Ambulance Charity

    We helped the Great Western Air Ambulance Charity purchase their new £2m air base in Almondsbury, South Gloucestershire. This property purchase has enabled the independently-funded charity to acquire its permanent home from which it will provide a vital emergency service that saves lives across the region each year.

    One HealthTech Bristol

    We have formed a strategic partnership with One HealthTech Bristol, the volunteer-led grassroots community that supports and promotes women and other under-represented groups to be future leaders in digital health and innovation. One HealthTech provides communities with the platform to build a local, inclusive and diverse health tech community, in the UK and internationally.

    Festival of Sustainable Business

    We are proud to support the inaugural Festival of Sustainable Business, leading the Sustainable Construction seminar. The festival is dedicated to promoting, celebrating and helping businesses progress in their sustainability efforts.

    Bristol Life Business Club

    We are the headline sponsor of Bristol Life’s Business Club lunches. These present a fantastic opportunity to bring the city’s diverse range of businesses together to discuss a broad range of topics and gain unique insights from a range of business speakers.

    South West Energy Efficiency Association

    We are members of the South West Energy Efficiency Association, a group of energy efficiency and sustainability professionals working to reduce wasted energy in homes and businesses.

    1625 Independent People

    1625 Independent People work with young people who are homeless, leaving care or at risk of homelessness in the South West. They offer a range of support for individuals aged 16 to 25 around several key strands, including:

    • Accommodation
    • Education, employment and training
    • Health and wellbeing
    • Financial capability

    Ultimately, they aim to provide safe, stable accommodation alongside practical and emotional support to help young people build relationships, develop independent living skills and access jobs and training.

    Ready for Work

    Our Bristol office hosted Business in the Community's (BITC) Ready for Work Programme, which involved a group of eight volunteers working with the clients to help them with interview techniques and to think about what can be expected in the workplace.

    Pathways to Law

    We took on three Pathways to Law students for work placements during a February half term, giving students an opportunity to learn about the structure and functions of a law firm. They rotated across departments to maximise their experience of what it is like to work at a law firm.

    UK Housing Fast

    Members of the Property team in Bristol joined this year's UK Housing Fast to raise much needed funds for the Trussell Trust. The Trussell Trust helps people across the UK lift themselves out of poverty through the provision of emergency food, support and advice. The fast raised over £1,700.

    B Strong U Belong

    B Strong U Belong (BSUB) is a charity partnership initiative created by our Business Change Analyst Luke Elstone-Bryan to help raise awareness of mental health. Luke and a group of friends have partnered with two charities, Off the Record and Second Step. BSUB have organised numerous events from Tough Mudder events, half marathons, bake sales, football scratch cards, fantasy football leagues, auctions, as well as a bike ride to Brentford.


    LaunchPad is one of the first outcomes of the Bristol Housing Festival and has brought together a partnership of collaborators to showcase innovation in construction and land use. Using modular construction techniques, the 31 portable units will provide accommodation for students, key workers and young people moving on from supported housing. To enable the development, we provided pro-bono advice: assisting United Communities to agree with Bristol City Council the form of lease on the land – a former car park; and advising United Communities on modifications to the standard JCT Design and Build Contract 2016 – reflecting the particular challenges of off-site construction.
