"The unit at Magnum Trade Park was an ideal specification for our Crown Decorator Centre. It is ideally located in close proximity to the town centre and major access roads and has provided ample space and scope for all of our needs. The site has also given us the opportunity to create a flagship store, which will now be used as a benchmark for the design and operation of future decorator centres."

Robert Wood - National Operations Manager, Crown Decorating Centres


Description

A trade park located on the edge of Rochdale Town Centre in a high profile location on a main arterial route linking to the M62.

Size

A two and a half acre brownfield site, formerly occupied by a car panel manufacturer and bacon supplier. The site now consists of 11 high quality retail trade units of between 3,700 and 7,500 sq ft, c

Aims

To develop a high quality industrial park specifically designed for trade park use that would attract well known occupiers to the site. In addition the design of the buildings would improve the appearance of a site in such a prominent location.

Challenges

The site required remediation to remove ash from the land before reforming into new levels. New services were required to increase power to the site and alterations to the public highway were also needed to accommodate the new site usage.

Solutions

Piling and vibro-compaction were utilised to stabilise the ground prior to building, requiring care not to disturb residential areas close to the site.

Benefits

The mono pitched steel frame, low level buildings incorporate both brickwork and cladded walls, improving the appearance of a previously under utilised site. The units were built as shells, to allow trade operators to fit out their premises as required.
