Cabot Circus Merchants Quarter

Bristol

Cabot Circus, Bristol’s flagship shopping centre, opened to the public in September 2008, following a decade of design and planning with four years of site preparation before the main building work began. The scheme includes refurbishment of the 13th century Friary Building, and the development of new 97,000m² of retail space and an 18-storey residential tower, generally constructed with reinforced concrete on piled foundations.

Cabot Circus is Bristol's flagship shopping centre

One of the largest regeneration projects in the South West of England

These foundations were designed and constructed to bridge archaeological remains of previous Friary buildings.

With four floors of retail, Harvey Nichols provides the main store focus to this area. Byrne Bros. works included 14 reinforced concrete cores, typically 30 metres high, with 5 cores being constructed simultaneously.
