Tyler Grange worked with architects AWW to prepare landscape proposals for the listed building conversion of Brunel House into high quality residential apartments, the proposals included the demolition of some of the more recent out buildings and the building of new contemporary apartment blocks.
The site has a very interesting history having originally been built by George Müller as part of his ‘New Orphan Houses’ before more recently being incorporated into the City of Bristol College Brunel Campus.
Our landscape architects, ecologists and arboriculturalists worked together to deal with a number of complex multidisciplinary issues including bats and TPO trees as well as ensuring that the landscape proposals respected and complimented the setting of the listed buildings and created a new and exciting landscape and green infrastructure for the new development.
During detailed surveys, our ecologists identified roosting pipistrelle bats within the fabric of the
building. Working with the architects we devised a strategy that provided new opportunities for
the bats without affecting the development designs.
