Sheldon Retail Park is a £5m development, located in the centre of Sheldon, on the southern side of the main A45 Coventry Road, some 6 miles east of Birmingham City centre. In line with modern retailing requirements, the 45,000 sq ft site is home to a diverse range of occupiers, including an M&S Foodhall, B&M and The Gym, providing a diverse range of facilities for the local population. The new retail park marks the second phase of development, the first phase facilitating Morrisons supermarket, which opened some six years previously.
Phase two development of the project, which was carried out over 36 calendar weeks and opened summer 2019, includes five retail units, between 3,483 sq. ft and 18,646 sq. ft in size. Central Fabrications supplied aluminium ppc cappings, bullnose and corners, along with aluminium panels for archways and advertising, insulated guttering, Plastisol flashings and galvanised soakers.
The development has prominence and visibility from the A45, with tenants’ signage supported by aluminium coated panels on both sides of the buildings, together with attractive glazed elevations. Ceramic coated glass spandrel panels are used where appropriate to conceal the building structure and reduce glazing to minimise solar glare. The design is similar to that of the adjacent Morrisons, creating synergy between the two buildings.
Paul McKenna, Group CEO of main contractor, mac-group, comments: “We’ve delivered a very high-quality development for Chase Midlands Estates, which enhances the local retail offer and provides much-needed facilities that will attract shoppers from across the area.”
Tim Haslam, from Chase Midlands Estates, added: “I am very pleased with the first-class retail facility mac-group and their team have delivered for us at Sheldon Retail Park. The team were proactive and flexible in their approach and worked collaboratively with all stakeholders to ensure this quality project was delivered to the satisfaction of all parties.”
