Spirit has been working with property developers Umberslade to communicate the start of work on the hotly-anticipated Wapping Wharf development by Bristol’s docks.
Work on the mixed use scheme got underway this month with a ground-breaking ceremony led by mayor George Ferguson (pictured left).
By positioning the project as the last piece in the jigsaw of the docks’ regeneration and a clear sign of economic confidence returning to the city, we managed to overcome the challenges of driving rain and a packed news agenda to attract a strong media turnout.
ITV Westcountry, Heart FM, the Bristol Post, South West Business Insider and Bristol Business News all attended the event and further coverage was obtained in the lead up to and following the ceremony.
It was a pleasure to swap business attire for hard hats and steel cap boots to see long-awaited work start on this iconic site, which is set to create a new waterside community for Bristol and an important link connecting the south of Bristol with the city centre.
