Catterick Garrison plan breaks ground
May 22 2014mixed use development at Catterick Garrison, North Yorkshire, has begun with Kier Construction breaking ground at the 150,000sq/ft scheme.
Designed by Holmes Miller on behalf of Lingfield the site of a former sports ground it will deliver new retail units, a cinema, hotel, café, restaurant and bar as part of efforts to create a new town centre.
This seeks to provide a more dense solution than the typical suburban retail park by adopting an urban scale more appropriate to a typical market town.
In their design statement the architects write: “A strong, crisp brick façade is proposed utilising a natural, indigenous material. Brick can be used in a contemporary manner whilst complementing the traditional urban fabric. The small module responds to the human scale helping to create a comfortable civic environment.”
A pedestrianised street will bissect the site, adding some human scale to the retail sheds and car park
