Description

Homes for Heroes 100: Ashton Rise
Part of Festival of the Future City 2019
Fri 18 October 2019, 11:00-12:00
Ashton Rise, Bristol, BS3 2QE
£8/£6/£4.50

£4.50 PARTNER RATE is for staff and students at the following organisations: Arts Council England, Bristol City Council, Business West, University of Bristol and UWE.

Ashton Rise is an exciting new housing development in Ashton Vale, South Bristol. The innovative development of 133 homes will feature 40% social rent, and will see the council building houses for sale on the private market for the first time. The proceeds from the private sales will be reinvested to support funding the construction of the 53 new council homes on the site.

Utilising modern methods of construction, the project team are using the Sig iHouse system on the houses and a lightweight Fusion steel frame on the apartment blocks. These innovative solutions will enable the homes to be watertight quicker. The development will also feature a large ground source heat pump that will help deliver carbon savings for residents and the city. Construction workers will also be trialling an EksoVest, an exoskeleton that provides additional support for overhead repetitive tasks.

Come and hear about the exciting innovation taking place on this project. You will also be able to have a tour of the site and find out how Willmott Dixon are stepping up to the housing challenge.

Concessions apply to Full Time Students, Job Seekers Allowance, Incapacity Benefit claimants, over 60s and disabled people. The Partner Rate applies to those working at the following organisations: Arts Council, Bristol City Council, Businesswest, University of Bristol and UWE.
