Brooks Dye Works Reaches New Heights at Milestone Topping Out Ceremony

February 1, 2022

We were delighted to join Galliard Homes and Halsall Construction to celebrate the ‘topping out’ of our award-winning 113 home Brooks Dye Works development in Bristol’s St Werburghs last month. Built on the former 19th century dye works, a key regeneration site in St Werburghs, the topping out ceremony marked the final tile being placed on the last roof of the scheme.

With works beginning on site in 2019, the ceremony was an exciting landmark for our team and partners, Galliard Homes and Halsall Construction. Held on the roof of the new apartment block, the final phase of the scheme, with the final tile signed by Andy Corp, Managing Director of Halsall and Robin Squire, Regional Managing Director at our Bristol office, before being hung in place.

Andy Corp commented “We are delighted to be working with Acorn and Galliard again on what is our flagship site. The new homes fit perfectly into the surrounding area, and we’re thrilled to be celebrating with our customers on this important milestone in the delivery of the scheme”.

Robin Squire said “We are proud to celebrate this key milestone. It’s fantastic to see this exciting project in Bristol come to life, working with Halsall to deliver a scheme which not only addresses the need for new homes in the area, but focuses on sustainability and wellbeing, by bringing a disused site back into use and improving access to public space for the local community.”

George Baffoe-Djan, Head of Strategic Partnerships at Galliard Homes said “Seeing the site today and how far it has come within the last few months is an achievement in itself. It’s been a great partnership between us all and I hope that we can work on similar development together in the future.”

During the topping out ceremony, Andy, Robin and George were joined by other team members involved in the development of the site.

Centred around the local landmark chimney of the historic former dye works factory, the scheme offers access to open green space with new pedestrian routes to the neighbouring Mina Road Park and new Alfred Brooks Square.
