South Bristol’s newest nursery is nearing completion on schedule and on budget.
Helm Construction is aiming to complete the new building in Chessel Street, Bedminster before the end of the month.
Site manager Kim Richings said: “This has been a challenging but worthwhile build – replacing the former Boy’s Brigade Hall with a brand-new community facility and all within a particularly confined space.
“This was a historic site in Bedminster – it was even bombed during the war – and we are hoping the new nursery will take its place as a much loved and valuable facility for local families.
Kim said the new nursery blends in well with its surroundings and complements the existing architecture.
“The exterior has been designed to reflect one of the city’s most recognisable brands – the highly colourful terraced houses in nearby Totterdown.”
The two-storey nursery is built around an attractive garden and playground area.
“We believe it will be a great community asset to the Bedminster and Southville areas, providing much needed childcare facilities for residents old and new.”
