Retail & Leisure Scheme, Stafford
Simons had full design and build responsibility for this phased-scheme project, which included a 14-level multi storey car park and a 220,000 sq ft mixed-use retail development.
Built in a shopping mall format, it was constructed in a challenging and complicated town centre location, surrounded by live roadways and town centre traffic. Construction involved extensive demolition works, deep piled building foundations and sheet piling solutions to retain the highway, diverting an existing culvert from the site. The enabling works, adjacent to the main highway and river, involved significant civils and ground engineering solutions.
As a result of the successful completion of the overall development, Simons negotiated the construction of a £6.5 million Odeon Cinema, which is now underway and due for completion in June 2018.
