Hamlet Green, Suffolk

New Retail Development

Company: Cadman Construction Ltd  |  Category: Industrial and Retail

This Case Study comprises a large Retail Development project upon a brownfield site in Haverhill, Suffolk that has finally become a reality for our client following a challenging journey through planning and development, the project will now provide vital re-generation to the site in Haverhill which stood derelict for many years previous. 

The project involved significant enabling works and remediation of contaminated ground prior to commencement the building work to construct three new retail units, an extensive adjustment of existing site levels was also essential in order to incorporate the new development.

A steel frame was constructed upon traditional pad foundations utilising galvanised steel members to spread building loads in lieu of traditional strip footings which had the added benefit of reducing construction timescales. The structural steel frame was subsequently clad using a CA Twin-Therm built up roofing system and a combination of CA Twin Therm wall cladding and Kingspan Benchmark Ceramic Grainite Rainscreen Cladding which sets this development apart from similar developments of this type.

The retail units incorporate a combined gross floor area of just shy of 28,000 square feet and have been subdivided to accomodate Home Bargains and Pets at Home Retail Stores together with a third (vacant) unit which is currently under negotiation.  

The respective tenants will soon commence the fit-out of their units following completion of the construction activities and the new development will no doubt provide a significant contribution to the re-generation and development of Haverhill that is planned over the next 15 years.
