The Poplars at Bolton Woods

United under a single vision

The Poplars development, north of Bradford City Centre, represented the first phase of the New Bolton Woods masterplan initiative.

Including a mix of 20 affordable housing and 30 private ‘for sale’ dwellings, it was a rigid requirement that the affordable homes complied fully with the HQI Design Quality Standards and the Code for Sustainable Homes. In respect of this, our remit was to provide the necessary detailed design and construction information.

We’ve led a number of productive design workshops with the development team.

With planning permission received, the challenge was to refine the unit footprints on the site, without compromising the approved architectural styles and elevational treatments.

To create a cohesive scheme of the appropriate standard, reflecting the aspirations set out in the original masterplan, we led a series of productive design workshops with the development team and Bradford Council.
