Snowhill, Wakefield – New Retail Development – 18/04/16


Henry Boot Construction are pleased to have been awarded a new retail development project at Snowhill in Wakefield.  The scheme is a design and build for a new mixed use retail development for Kier Property Developments Ltd.

Enabling works include the stabilisation of old mine workings through grouting and a significant 278 works package including the creation of a new major roundabout on the A650.  The main work entails the construction on Aldi foodstore, five mixed size retail units including two drive-through units, associated external works, access roads, car parking for over 250 cars, footways, service areas and landscaping.

Works are due to commence in March 2016 with completion planned for Easter 2017.

“We are delighted to have been appointed to carry out the construction of the new retail park at Snowhill.  Kier are a new client to us and we are looking forward to building excellent relationships with them and their representatives during the course of this project”

Steve Green, Contracts Manager, Henry Boot Construction

“We have had strong interest in the remaining retail units and it’s good to see construction work starting this month as scheduled.  This great scheme will bring much-needed investment and jobs into Wakefield and will become a key shopping location for the local community and surrounding area.”
