There is something uniquely restful and soothing about GREENFIELD SITE
being around the water. With the sounds, sights and colours Previously undeveloped

the market for waterfront property is always high and can
command a premium for those fortunate enough to find a site.

Greenfield sites are areas of land which are being


considered for urban development. This can be a highly
contentious issue, as once land has been converted
to development, it is unlikely to be converted back to
Greenfield use leading to the reduction of the natural
habitat of some animal and plant species, shrinking of
agricultural land and diminished amenity or recreation

PRODUCT RANGE

BESPOKE DESIGN
To take advantage of the efficiencies
offered by the manufacturing process,
Bluefield has developed a product range
which suits the modular system which
in turn keeps costs to a minimum.

However using the same process


and design principles, Bluefield can
adapt the system to create bespoke
floating solutions to suit a particular
client need or site restraint. However
the timescales and costs will vary
considerably depending on the
particular client and site requirements.

If you have a particular need or


site restraint which does not fit our
standard range then please get in
touch. One of our representatives
will discuss your requirements and
will produce a basic feasibility study
for you to help make any decision.

F LO A T I N G S P A C E
To fully take advantage of the Bluefield
concept of regenerating previously
inaccessible waterfront and riverside
sites, Bluefield can use the same process
and design principles to combine the
floating units with walkways, parks,
green space, markets and other
high quality public realm to create
whole new floating promenades and
villages which would have previously
been impossible to achieve.

Combine this with our bespoke design


service and the possibilities are
endless, only limited by site specific
constraints, time and budget.

ABOUT US

OUR STORY
With the world population expanding every year, we have
to be innovative in how we can balance the accommodation
needs of the population with the long term impact on the
environment. Combine this with the concerns over climate
change and increased flooding it becomes more and more
obvious to look at Bluefield sites to resolve these issues.

At Bluefield we believe we have created a solution which meets


all these requirements. By lightly touching waterfront & riverside
sites with minimal permanent infrastructure, we offer a viable
solution to our growing accommodation needs. We use the latest
construction technology and techniques to enhance the quality of
living, offering the same standard of living on the water as on land.

Bluefield is a UK company based in Northern Ireland, however


we are continually developing our supply chain to eventually
be able to deliver our products all around the world.

If you are interested in taking the Bluefield concept further


please get in contact with us and we will start the process and
hopefully deliver an exciting new Bluefield development for you.
