Meadowhall transformed

Following a two-year programme, Laing O’Rourke has reached practical completion on the £60 million refurbishment of Meadowhall for British Land.

The extensive transformation, which was largely carried out during night-shifts to minimise disruption to shoppers and retailers, saw Laing O’Rourke create four districts, each with a distinctive character and offer.

Columns and bulkheads have been reduced or removed creating lighter, brighter malls, with new glazing and improved lighting and new customer seating added. The relocation of the centre’s mechanical and electrical systems has enabled retailers, including All Saints and Hollister, to introduce double height flagship formats.  Others, such as Primark, River Island and Sports Direct to name but a few, upsized or increased their brand presence.
