Ediston Opportunity Partnership completes redevelopment work at Pallion with new lettings to Matalan and B&M

Redevelopment work has now completed on the upper retail terrace at Pallion Retail Park, Sunderland. This work comprised the sub-division of the existing 50,000 sq. ft. retail unit, to create a new 30,000 sq. ft. unit for Matalan Retail Ltd, and a new 20,000 sq. ft. unit for B&M Retail Limited. New 15-year leases have been completed with each retailer.

In addition to the internal sub-division works, works have also been completed to over-clad the original frontage, create new glazed shop-fronts and signage zones, and to resurface the perimeter hard-standings and service areas. A new 4,000 sq. ft. retail unit has also been constructed as an extension to the existing retail terrace.

Works were undertaken by the following project team members:

Main contractor – Stainforth Construction Limited
Employers Agent & Quantity Surveyor – P3 Consulting Limited
Architects – Smith Design Associates
Civil & Structural Engineer – Quattro Consult Limited
M&E Services Engineer – KJ Tait Engineers

Neal Jamieson, Director of Ediston Real Estate commented: “Works to sub-divide and adapt existing buildings are inherently complex and require a detailed level of diligence and close co-ordination between landlord and tenant teams, and the successful completion of the redevelopment works at Pallion Retail Park are the culmination of many months of hard work and effort by all members of the project team’’.
