Somerdale Pavillion

The redevelopment of the Cadbury Factory’s Fry Club forms a key part of the Factory’s regeneration on the outskirts of Keynsham.

“In the near future, we aim to bring the benefits of BIM to our wider client base by integrating and coordinating the process with both our masterplanning and urban design teams. This will not only increase productivity, but it will also improve accuracy when costing projects or potential variations.” Mark Baker, Architect
