The Cortonwood Shopping Park represents an 11,000 m2 (120,000 sq ft) extension to the Cortonwood Retail Park near Rotherham. Client is Helical Retail Ltd.

JF Finnegan has begun work on site on a programme of works that involves the demolition of a vacant 14,000 m2 warehouse, formerly occupied by UPS. Site preparation works will then take place ready for the development of 11 new units for retailers to occupy by autumn 2017.

The contract continues JF Finnegan’s long-standing involvement at the former colliery site, having constructed all previous phases over the last 20 years.

Helical Retail’s Adrian Russell said; “We appointed JF Finnegan due to their historic involvement with Cortonwood and their strong reputation and are looking forward to seeing work progress on site.”

Dawa Singh, head of pre-construction at JF Finnegan, said; “Over the years we have witnessed the transformation of Cortonwood into one of the region’s most acclaimed regeneration projects and shopping destinations. We have been working alongside Helical Retail and their project managers PMS (Wessex) Ltd for some time to develop the plans for the new extension which will ensure the continued success of the development.”
