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.
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.

Enabling a medieval foundation to meet 21st century needs
We achieved unanimous planning consent after extensive pre-application discussions with Oxford City Council planning officers and the community.

A state-of-the-art international venue in an ancient Oxford setting

Everything was designed to the very highest specifications and used the highest quality materials, including solid oak and solid limestone, designed to merge with the setting.
2,000 sqm of state-of-the-art research, office and technology space
Our understanding of design and construction, combined with our strong relationship with the client, Architects and the construction company, has enabled us to value engineer some £10m of savings into the project to bring it back on budget. At time of writing (Sept 17) the project is also on time and should be ready for students in October 2018.
