Work is progressing well on the Fox Valley development, Stocksbridge site. Steelwork is due to be erected on the umbrella shaped coffee shop next week with design of the building inspired by the paragon umbrella frame – invented by Samuel Fox in Stocksbridge in 1850s.

The steel frame on three of the four other main retails blocks at the £42 million development and the remedial work on the residential site is almost complete – ready for the house builders Stonebridge Homes to start work in the autumn.

The main construction work on the new office buildings Fox House, Maria House and Samuel House has been completed and work is underway on the car park and the internal work, ready for completion by the end of August.

Work is also progressing well on the brick work and the roofing works to block B at Fox Valley – the largest of the retail blocks at the town centre scheme.

Once completed the development will deliver 32 high quality new retail units, with a 600 space car park and high quality office space. A housing development with 114 new homes is also being developed by Stonebridge Homes on the neighbouring site.

Dransfield Properties has received an investment of £8,111,040 from the Yorkshire and Humber ERDF Programme 2007-2013 which is managed by the Department for Communities and Local Government to bring forward the Fox Valley project.

“There has been a great deal of progress on site over this last month and things are really taking shape. It’s great to see the steel frames of the buildings going up and the brickwork progressing.”
