The New Year at Brightwells Yard has brought more progress as we now have several buildings above ground and rising. This is helping to bring shape to our new town square and we can begin thinking about the launch of our show apartment in the summer. To be the first to know when sales officially launch, visit our website here and sign up to our mailings.

At the Marlborough Head, the final foundations are being completed ahead of structural steel works due at the end of February.

The commercial unit sitting just behind the Marlborough Head will have its final foundations put in place in February as well, with the second floor already taking shape to the south of the building. By May, the steel frame roof will be in place.

Next door to this, the building has a complete frame with internal blockwork taking place to separate the retail units. Scaffolding is going up so we can do the outside brick work.

You may have noticed another tower crane has joined us as well, bringing our total on site to 5. There will be no further tower cranes before the completion of the scheme.

The future home of Reel Cinemas has a finished basement, and work on the multi-storey car park is continuing with the 2nd storey.

Our unit at the north of the future Brightwells Garden is now fully surrounded by scaffolding, so we can continue to survey the existing structure alongside the council’s officers.

In the new M&S building, the basement and ground floor have been completed and we are preparing to pour the floor for the first floor residential.
