Gainsborough Town Centre Regeneration Project
Dransfield Properties and West Lindsey District Council are working in partnership to transform the Market Street, Church Street and North Street area of the town. Thanks to the unique partnership, the joint venture will also deliver improvements to the Roseway’s Car Park as well as the development of the brand new Travelodge Hotel and Ponti’s Italian Kitchen Restaurant.
The development is being built on the former Sun Inn site - the disused buildings on the site were demolished earlier in the summer of 2017 and the site cleared.
The project is currently on schedule to be completed by Christmas 2018.
PDR Construction are the main contractors on site.
Site Update June 2018
The recent weeks of glorious sunshine has allowed for the
main contactors, PDR Construction to make significant progress on site.
Masonry works to the lift shafts have been completed with
timber linings now in place ready for the roof construction to be installed.
Stone work to the ground floor perimeter has commenced to
the North Street and Market Street elevations with masonry works to the ground
floor perimeter walls and the dividing walls nearing completion.
All metal framing work is now complete with first fix
M&E installation completed to the first and second floors and is now progressing
on to the third and fourth floors.
Plaster boarding and the staircase installation is reaching
completion with the roof membrane being installed to the previously insulated
areas. Roof hatches have now also been installed.
Externally the site is also starting to take shape with the
fountain construction in progress and ground works to form the car park area
are now well underway.
A Topping Out event was held in May where a flag was dropped
from the scaffold of the fourth floor. School children from local primary school Gainsborough
Parish CofE were able to enjoy the event as they provided items to put in the
time capsule which was also buried at the event.
Dave Hale, Construction Director of Dransfield Properties
said: This is such an exciting time for Gainsborough, this development will deliver something quite unique and we cant wait for people to be able to enjoy it”.
