Bio House


The redevelopment of Bio House will be the first city centre high rise residential development in the City.

The existing site of redundant offices located adjacent to most attractive location of the River Derwent in the city centre of Derby.

The striking new scheme will provide 105 new units of up market residential development within easy reach of the city centre facilities together with associated car parking and small retail units at ground floor.

The design of the foot print of the site has been carefully considered to avoid the impact of possible flooding from the river and around a quarter of the site has been given up to improve the anticipated channels of flood water.

The height of the building has been carefully modelled to ensure that it does not have a detrimental impact on nearby listed building in the city centre.
