Calderpeel are currently working with Wellington Markets on several retail projects throughout the UK.

A unique retail and leisure development located in the heart of Knutsford, this scheme has been sensitively designed to reflect the architectural heritage of this historic town. Conversion of the existing Royal George Hotel provides part food/drink, offices and retail units, the demolition of buildings to the southern side of the scheme provides a new A3 unit with 3 apartments over two and three storeys. The development to the rear comprises of 12 flats and 11 retail units with under croft parking.
A single storey, flat roofed building is proposed for the site which sits comfortably alongside the surrounding retail units. The proposals are for 247 m² retail accommodation split into 2no units, with 10no car parking spaces and an external seating area. This scheme offers a sustainable retail development that responds to the existing topography, landscaping and site constraints, and makes a positive contribution to the area.
A design exercise to create a recognisable unified brand of 4,000sq.ft community retail units which could be readily adapted to meet the individual vernacular of each of the individual sites our client could potentially develop. This high quality contemporary solution is simple and efficient to construct utilising a portal frame structure that affords an internal column-free environment that can easily accommodate a variety of internal arrangements depending on the individual requirements of each store.
Following detailed appraisals of the site to identify and unlock its true economical potential, the relocation of the dental practice facilitated the procurement for the new large retail units facing the main road with eleven apartments above. Designed to appear fresh, modern and inviting the building has become a landmark in the area and has re-invigorated many local business.
The proposals have been carefully designed to provide a clear and concise sustainable development. The clearly defined public realm permeates the site, providing a series of interconnected spaces, which interact with the retail and leisure uses to create a vibrant and energised environment not only for the residents of Hinkley, but for the wider community.
