Steelwork transforms former mining town
Structural steelwork is playing a pivotal role in the regeneration of Hednesford in Staffordshire, where a large scale project will revitalise this former coal mining community.
The £50M project includes two adjacent developments, known as Victoria Shopping Park and Chase Gateway. The former consists of a 7,400m² Tesco store, a parade of seven retail units, as well as a new community facility.
Working on behalf of Vinci Construction, Caunton Engineering has fabricated, supplied and erected approximately 1,000t of steel for the Victoria Shopping Park phase.
The Tesco superstore and the retail units opened in November, in time for the festive shopping season. The community facility is expected to open shortly.
At Chase Gateway, a purpose built building has been delivered for Hednesford Bingo and work is nearing completion on a new 1,400m² Aldi store.
Working in conjunction with Cannock Chase Council, St Modwen is delivering the entire regeneration scheme.
