The scheme provides over 40,000 square feet of new retail space across five units built to a shell specification, along with service yard and access, plus public realm works.

Larger retail units are occupied by Aldi, Iceland and Quality Save, providing shopping space, back of house facilities, interior fit out and comprehensive M&E services.

Construction took place within a live retail environment and weekly coordination meetings were scheduled with the retail centre manager to ensure the safety of the public at all times.

We worked in collaboration with the client to help ensure the units were available to let at the earliest opportunity. Our programme facilitated phased handovers of units to enable early access for retail tenants.

Residential accommodation for Phase 2 provides 11 apartments and a stunning three bedroom duplex. The high quality accommodation comprises luxury apartments offering full width terraces opening out from the living area, with interiors fitted to a high quality specification.

Apartments include features to improve accessibility, such as adjustable kitchens and wheelchair access. Each apartment also has parking space and secure cycle storage.
