The Challenge

Selective Demolition of the existing retail parts and the creation of five new build units, totalling 59,000 sq ft of additional space. Also, ten of the existing units were refurbished and the pedestrian walkways improved as part of the investment by owner Derwent Holdings, bringing the total space at the park to 148,000 sq ft.

White City Retail Park

The refurbishment saw the existing units modernised with new glass facades and ceramic rain screen cladding, and brought up to modern building regulations with improved energy efficiency, with the new-build sections designed to match.

The use of glass canopies not only gives the buildings a more modern appearance, but serves to benefit customers who will be protected from the rain while walking from store to store. Manchester’s AEW Architects was responsible for the design and planning for the development.

The work took place whilst existing occupiers remain on site and stores were left open to the public. Detailed logistical, health and safety plans were implemented.
