City and Country Group has appointed architects to redevelop Bristol hospital site

Restoration specialist City and Country Group has appointed a team of architects to lead the redevelopment of the grade II-listed Bristol General hospital site.

Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios has been appointed as lead architect, while landscape architect Grant Associates and planning consultant CSJ Planning will also work on
the project.

The three-acre quayside site, which City and Country bought for £6m, will become surplus to requirements when the new South Bristol Community hospital opens in 2012.

City and Country Group hopes to start regeneration work immediately, and will begin by restoring the historically important parts of the main hospital buildings. They will then begin construction of new flats.
