First phase of main construction works completed – paving way for Fox Valley development – 23/12/14


Henry Boot Construction’s Eastern Division has completed the first phase of the Fox Valley scheme in Stocksbridge, North Sheffield.

Work started earlier this year on the brand new Tata Steel warehouse and a special topping out ceremony was held in June when the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, Dr Vince Cable visited the site.

Part of the development site had previously been used to store steel which can now be relocated into the new warehouse facility.

The flood protection works are also due to be completed this month as are the works to the iconic stainless steel building off Hunshelf Road, which has been refurbished as part of the project.

The main construction to the retail area will start early in the New Year along with construction of the new on site.

The development, due to be completed early 2016, also includes a new next link road to the A616 Sheffield to Manchester Road where the new roundabout was completed earlier this year.  The overall scheme also includes new high office space as well as a new 635 space for car parking, retail, restaurant and café units anchored by a 63,000 sq.ft. Tesco store and high quality public realm area and landscaping as well as strong pedestrian links with Manchester Road.

“It’s great to see the progress that has been made over the last couple of months and we’ll start to see a real transformation in the early part of next year”
