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.
