Stevenage Town Square is one of the town’s most iconic and well known areas and its receiving a major upgrade. Working with developer Mace and lead contractor, Ashe, we’re introducing new granite paving, bespoke, retro lighting, new drainage facilities,and more to the area.
The development of the adjacent North Block (yhe site of Starbucks, Greggs, Subway) will also provide new retail, commercial and flexible office space and will include the restoration of heritage building frontages based upon Stevenage’s initial architectural heritage. The site of the former McDonald’s unit is being stripped and refitted in order to house a new modern restaurant. By introducing over 200 spaces for flexible workers, SMEs, start ups and more we can increase the number of people working and using the town centre, therefore increasing demand for services and businesses based here.
Despite the challenges provided by the covid-19 outbreak, our contractors have made fantastic progress, with the area partially open to allow shoppers and other visitors to adhere to new social distancing guidelines.
The schemes are expected to last 44 weeks in total from Autumn 2019 and will be completed ahead of Christmas 2020.
