JPG has been appointed to advise on the £25 million redevelopment plan for Catterick town centre in North Yorkshire.
JPG is currently working on ground preparation and structural elements required to deliver the high profile scheme for joint venture partners Kier Property and Lingfield Securities, which recently secured planning consent from Richmondshire District Council.
The project involves the redevelopment of a central 150,000 sq ft site in Catterick that ultimately proposes to create around 700 new jobs. It will include a multiplex cinema, ten new retail units, a 60-bed hotel, cafes, restaurants and bars as well as 400 car parking spaces.
JPG has a crucial role in helping to plan the development on a level plateau whilst minimising the need for costly site excavation. Kim Han, Project Director at JPG, said “The site is sloping with ground level differences to as much as eight meters. The new uses proposed need to work on one level not least to facilitate easy access and better interaction of facilities.”
JPG is also consulting with the Highways Agency to adapt access roads and enhance pedestrian/cycle routes.
Kim Han continues, “We are delighted to be retained to advise on such a significant project that is clearly a massive boost for Catterick. Our significant experience on similar mixed use developments, including Broad Street Plaza in Halifax, assists greatly with the economic viability and deliverables for the project.”
Work has recently started on site.
