Home Bargains Hyndburn Commenced

Hyndburn Unit 1 Whitebirk for Home Bargains (002)

Williams Tarr have commenced work on a £2.5m scheme for T J Morris at the Peel Centre, Hyndburn. The 49,000 sq. ft. Unit 1 is being gutted and completely refurbished and sub-divided to form a 34,000 sq. ft. Home Bargains Retail Store and a 15,000 sq. ft. unit ear-marked for another occupier.

The project involves a full strip out old fixtures, fittings, mezzanine floors and internal  walls.  Then all external masonry cavity walls, profiled cladding and roof coverings will be removed back to the steel frame. The frame will be repaired and be modified to form parapets. New secondary steelwork will be installed for the roof and to support new profiled cladding.  New external walls will comprise facing brickwork and  feature micro-rib composite cladding with expansive glazed shop fronts and entrance lobbies.

Williams Tarr Contracts Manager, Paul Hamlett  says:

Its good to be back on site for T J Morris, on this exciting refurbishment scheme. It’s our latest in a line of retail developments for this valued client, helping to provide a new and exciting store in the Hyndburn area. It’s especially pleasing to be bringing new life to the building which has been empty for a number of years. The design will bring an attractive and striking new façade to the building, and provide the local residents with a top class, modern shopping experience.
