Meadowhall refurbishment gets underway

Work has begun on the initial stage of Meadowhall shopping centre’s £60 million internal refurbishment programme.

GENERAL MERCHANDISE

Meadowhall refurbishment gets underway

The first area of the Sheffield shopping centre to benefit from the makeover will be both levels of The Arcade, from Marks & Spencer to the central dome.

Designed by international architects BDP, the changes include new balustrades and handrails, redesigned ceiling bulkheads, as well as new seating, lighting, signage and wayfinding. The refurbishment will take place overnight when the centre is closed.

Announced last year as Meadowhall celebrated its 25th birthday, the refurbishment will create distinct districts within the centre. The works will also enable a number of retailers to install double height shop fronts.

Conducted in a series of phases, Meadowhall’s transformation will be completed by the end of 2017.

Darren Pearce, Meadowhall centre director, said: “Following months of planning we are delighted to begin work on the overhaul of Meadowhall. The refurbishment is an important milestone for the centre and over the coming months visitors and staff are going to see some exciting changes taking place. Feedback received to date from shoppers, our retailers and restaurants has been very positive, and everyone is excited about the upgrades being made.

“To ensure the works are completed smoothly and with minimal disruption to visitors, shops and restaurants, we are launching new signage and information points to help communicate what is happening and when. Our customer service team is also fully briefed and we will have additional team members in the malls to answer any questions and assist visitors.”

In addition to the refurbishment, Meadowhall has attracted a number of new retailers recently including Jack Wills, Diesel, Michael Kors, Kiko Milano, Lush, Goldsmith’s Boutique and Joules.
