The development of two circular-shaped buildings houses a total of 111 one and two bed apartments. The Bison Precast team used their design and production capability to integrate the products into the circular building whilst achieving the essential structural tie detail necessary to ‘stitch’ the buildings together.

Trevor Stack, Construction Director at Countryside Properties said:

“This was a challenging project which was conceived and designed to look completely different and push design boundaries. We specified Bison’s products as their team was able to offer us high-quality products quickly and provide practical solutions to the issues that the shape of the structure raised, such as bespoke models for the external wall panels.”
