Working with client Henry Construction, T&T Facades will be involved in the early phase of the development, providing the cladding package on the revamp of the current tired and dated shopping centre.
Stevenage Borough Council has partnered with Reef Group to spearhead the Queensway North regeneration scheme, which comprises of the former Marks & Spencer store and adjoining retail parade.
Councillor Sharon Taylor, the leader of Stevenage Borough Council, said: “Our vision is to reinvigorate the centre of Stevenage, and with Reef Group now on board we’re in a great position to deliver on this vision. Together we’re bringing a new and different type of shopping experience, an innovation and technology centre, and more homes into the heart of our town, which will create a new and vibrant place for more people to shop, work and play.”
T&T’s contract is to design, supply and install aluminium rainscreen cladding, facias and soffits to three blocks of the extended and revamped shopping centre. Work is due to start early 2020.
Joint Company Owner, Tom Watkins commented: “We’re very much looking forward to working with the Henry Construction team on this exciting regeneration project and giving the town a major boost.”
