Fordingbridge are delighted to have been selected as part of the team to rejuvenate Angouleme Way Retail Park in Bury.
This busy retail park, situated directly opposite the town centre, is undergoing a modernisation programme to update cladding, landscaping and the entrance canopies. Extending to 76,247 sq ft, the prominent park plays home to a number of leading retailers including Argos, TK Maxx and Pound Stretcher, all of which are looking forward to the key Christmas shopping window. The decision to rejuvenate the scheme was taken in part by Bury Council, who are driving a number of regeneration projects for private landowners. The retail park is adjacent to Bury’s famous award winning indoor and covered market.
Our drawing team designed the new 7.7m high canopies to oversail the existing buildings, with a class B non-fragile polycarbonate roof providing shelter for shoppers below. Manufactured in our custom built West Sussex facility, all steel elements of the canopy are pre-fabricated allowing for rapid installation onsite. This includes the framing for the 150×6 SHS columns, which have been shot blasted, prior to zinc spray and PPC finish. This allows for a durable, long lasting finish, in-line with our experience and quality. Due to the length of the columns, the decision was made to complete the majority of the canopy works at night, therefore reducing risk to the public and allowing the retail stores to continue to trade.
At Fordingbridge we strive to provide more than just “off the shelf” solutions. If you have a project in mind which involves a bespoke design, and the need for a finish above the norm, then contact us today to see what we can bring to the programme.
