Projex is advising on the 100,000 sq ft second phase of Elliott’s Field Shopping Park, Rugby, which is on target to become the first retail park in the world to achieve the BREEAM rating of Outstanding.
The Hammerson scheme consists of a terrace of nine units with a detached unit to the west end. It is designated for bulky goods with a small A3 unit.
It is projected to achieve BREEAM Outstanding and will be the first retail park in the world to achieve this – it will also be measured on its embodied carbons and will be bench-marked against stringent Hammerson objectives.
The scheme has also been conducted at a hectic pace with site purchase occurring in July 2016, planning consent obtained December 2016 and work starting on site earlier this year with completion due November 2017. A total of seven tenants have already signed up and the programme includes major s278 works to the A46 and Old Leicester Road.
Projex is the appointed project manager and employer’s agent.
