The significant project to construct a landmark 48,613 sq. ft. mixed use modern retail development in Snowhill, Wakefield has been successfully completed for Kier Property Developments.

The new retail park consists of eight units, plus a further two drive-thru' units. Some of the retail occupiers include Aldi, Iceland, Poundworld, Barnardo's, Greggs and Costa along with restaurant chains McDonalds, KFC and Subway.

The six-acre site is situated adjacent to the Paragon Business Park and includes extensive landscaping with car parking provisions for over 250 vehicle. After stablilising the old mining works below the site, significant S278 works were completed, including the creation of a new major roundabout on the A650. S38 works also provided infrastructure for two adjacent residential schemes.

Whilst on site, the project team placed a real emphasis on encouraging work experience students and participants from training provider, Groundworks, to visit the site, with the aim of attracting more local training and employment in the industry.

"We are pleased to see how this development has been brought to a very successful conclusion by our team. It is rewarding to see how the work that we do has such an impact on the local community."

Tony Shaw, Operations Director
