Barnwood Construction wins £55m Gloucester Docks Bakers Quay development

Barnwood Construction has bagged a contract for the first phase of the £55m redevelopment of Gloucester’s docks. 

The South-west-based firm was chosen as the preferred bidder to carry out construction on the first part of the Bakers Quay development.

Phase one, which is being led by Rokeby Merchant Developments, will see the contractor deliver a 104-bedroom Premier Inn, as well as shops, restaurants and a new car park.

The site’s Provender Mill warehouse will also be converted into 46 apartments.

Construction is set to begin in September, with the work expected to be completed next autumn.

The second phase of the project will begin next year and include the conversion of the dock’s other original warehouse buildings into 112 new apartments.

Barnwood Construction managing director Simon Carey said: “At the height of the construction works there will be more than 100 operatives on site, most of whom will be from local subcontractors and suppliers.”

Rokeby Merchant chairman Michael Chicken said: “It took us some time to finally select the contractor we wanted to work with at Bakers Quay.

“However, we were impressed with Barnwood’s breadth of experience from the conversion of the original warehouse buildings in the Docks to building two recent Premier Inn hotels elsewhere in the country.”
