Barnfield secures £20m Lancashire projects
Barnfield Construction will deliver the £8m redevelopment of Clitheroe Market, a £4.6m training facility for Burnley Football Club, and a £7m warehouse for equestrian product wholesaler Trilanco in Kirkham.
In Clitheroe, Ribble Valley Council has awarded Barnfield the contract to redevelop the 1.4-acre market site in Clitheroe town centre, after a 10-day legal standstill period.
The scheme includes a 60-bedroom hotel, restaurant, café, seven shops, 67-space car park and revamped market with a hall, 50 units, 28 cabins and 22 stalls.
Detailed plans for the scheme will be unveiled in the New Year and, subject to planning approval, the construction of the new market is scheduled to be completed by February 2017, and the remainder of the site complete by April 2018.
In Kirkham, Barnfield has started on site on a 110,000 sq ft warehouse and office at Mill Farm Sports Village for Trilanco, an animal health and equestrian products wholesaler.
Trilanco’s facility will occupy a six-acre site within the 30-acre park on the Fylde coast.
For Burnley Football Club, planning permission has been granted for a £4.6m training centre and associated sports pitches at the club’s Gawthorpe complex. The development totals 800,000 sq ft and will include facilities for the first team, development squad and youth team players.
The build will include an indoor all-weather area with a small spectator gallery.
A new car park built north of the river, accessed via a refurbished bridge over the River Calder, will ease the pressure on the National Trust Car park close to Gawthorpe Hall, especially at peak times.
On the south side of the river, the existing top pitch is to be floodlit.
The pitch contractor is J Mallinson, based in Ormskirk.
