New development project manager for Finzels Reach

laura-head-shot-high-res-for-pressFinzels Reach, the new quarter being created in the heart of Bristol city centre, has a new development project manager.

Laura Hamer-West has joined Cubex, the Bristol based commercial and residential property developer behind the regeneration scheme.

Laura will work closely with Cubex’s director Gavin Bridge to complete the regeneration of this 4.7 acre site, which sits on the south bank of the Floating Harbour across the river from Castle Park.

She joins from project management consultant Turner and Townsend where she was a senior project manager working mainly on higher education building projects and on the Ministry of Justice’s Prison Transformation Programme.

The Finzels Reach development is one of the largest mixed use developments in the South West and includes 440 new apartments, two Grade A office buildings, a 168 bedroom Premier Inn which is due to open in 2017, plus a host of cafes, restaurants and a microbrewery.s.

Laura comments: “This is a really important city centre site that has so much history and it’s exciting to be working with Gavin on the next chapter of its development, managing the design and construction teams and supporting him in negotiations with potential business and leisure space occupiers.

“The new bridge is going to be a crucial link that will really help reconnect this part of the city centre. Its spectacular design will be a fantastic new addition to the floating harbour. It’s a great time to be joining Cubex and taking on this role.”
