The Oxford Artisan Distillery (TOAD)

Bidwells secured planning permission for the change of use of existing buildings to provide the distillery and visitor centre 

We used our strong relationship with the Council’s planning team and committee members to demonstrate the wider benefits of TOAD’s plans across a range of areas, including employment, preservation of a listed building and the redevelopment of vacant buildings on a disused brownfield site. Bidwells secured planning permission for the change of use of existing buildings to provide the distillery and visitor centre - demonstrating the advantages of the long-term relationships Bidwells creates with stakeholders and clients alike. 

Mansfield College 

An ambitious masterplan and estates development strategy, which aims to house all its undergraduate students on-site. 

Acting as project managers, we worked in conjunction with the client, architects, contractor and the University’s Law Faculty on the creation of the building, ensuring that it met all parties’ needs. We recommended the use of an innovative material – Cross Laminated Timber; using this material, rather than steel or concrete, enabled the building to be created far more quickly, and more quietly. It also meant less construction traffic and reduced carbon emissions.

At one stage, the project was over budget by £2m; Bidwells undertook major value engineering work to bring costs back in line by suggesting changes to less visible aspects of the project. 

Investcorp Building, St Antony’s College

The Zaha Hadid Investcorp Building is a world-class structure for a world-leading client. 

The Zaha Hadid Investcorp Building is a world-class structure for a world-leading client. Bidwells’ role was to steer the project along as straight a course as possible to minimise the issues for the client. A strong relationship with the College, along with ongoing communication, was key. The end result is a building to be hugely proud of, that beautifully conveys the evolution of the College and the ancient University and City around it.

LEON

Bidwells successfully obtained planning permission for the client by making the case that the change of use would benefit Cornmarket. 

Using our longstanding relationships with the planning department at Oxford City Council and our experience gleaned from promoting numerous other Leon units, we spent  months negotiating on Leon’s behalf with case officers to overcome the many policy objections. We also liaised closely with the landlord’s marketing agents to gather together the evidence substantiating loss of the shop use. Bidwells successfully obtained planning permission for the client by making the case that the change of use would benefit Cornmarket.
