The Challenge

Wapping Wharf is the new harbourside quarter in the heart of Bristol. It features over 600 new homes, independent shops, restaurants and cafes, and office space.

Umberslade is a leading property development, management and investment business with a focus on the UK who were looking to appoint a lead contractor who would be able to design and install the mechanical and electrical elements of a new residential and commercial area.

Based on land that was previously derelict, this project includes an eclectic mix of residential and commercial contemporary buildings together with the innovative development, Cargo – an area made entirely from converted shipping containers.

From sourdough pizzas to organic fruit and veg, and from freshly baked bread to specialist coffees, Wapping Wharf is now home to a plethora of independent restaurants, cafes and shops
