Redi-Rock™ wall saves space for car parking
CPM has recently been involved with the completion of a retaining wall at the prestigious £42 million Fox Valley Retail Development in Sheffield, which was officially opened by Joanna Lumley OBE.
CPM manufactured and supplied the Pell Frischmann Consultants designed Redi-Rock™ modular wall for Henry Boot Construction at the former 28 acre Outokumpu Steelworks site, in Stocksbridge to enable room for 600 space car park at the new retail park.
Work began on the project in early 2014, with the demolition of Tata garages, Outokumpu offices and Tata warehouse, followed by a year of remediation work before starting work on the new retail facility.
The development is designed to be in keeping with the area’s industrial heritage and fulfils the requirement for a new retail and commercial development in the area.
David Goddard, Senior Project Manager at Stocksbridge, said, “Stocksbridge has been a complex project involving the remediation and complete redevelopment of a former steelworks. It was a major undertaking for our company and has successfully transformed the north Sheffield site into a vibrant shopping centre creating 900 jobs for the local community.”
Since the official opening, Fox Valley has been selected to either start or finish the 2017 Tour de Yorkshire race, with the world’s best cyclists using the event as a first dress rehearsal for the 2019 UCI World Championships which are to be held in the UK.
