Celtic-EnGlobe have been appointed as demolition contractor for the prestigious Bridge Street Quarter Regeneration project. The project will be delivered by Warrington & Co., on behalf of Warrington Borough Council with development partner Muse and will provide a new market hall, a multiplex cinema, a number of family friendly restaurants, a new council office building and will create a new public square. Following the demolition of the eastern side of the former Time Square area work will commence on the first phase of the construction of the new development. The first building to be built will be a temporary market hall into which the market will relocate early in 2017 in order that the current market hall can be demolished and then a new, permanent £10 million, 31,150 sq ft market hall can be constructed. At no time will the market close or cease to trade. When open the new market hall will incorporate the magnificent, Grade 2 listed former Boots building façade on Bridge Street as one of its entrances. The opposite side of the building will feature entrances out towards the new square in front of the new multiplex cinema. Access into the market will also be available from the two other sides of the building in order to generate and promote through footfall and promote trade. The Bridge Street Quarter project will create up to 400 construction jobs and 400 new permanent jobs in the leisure, retail and restaurant sectors when the whole project is fully completed in 2019. Regional Director at Celtic Jon Freeman said: “Celtic-Englobe are very proud to be given the opportunity to bring more than 20 years of project delivery and innovation experience to bear on this landmark project. Especially one which will have such a positive impact on our local community and the ongoing development of Warrington town centre.” Deputy Leader of Warrington Borough Council, Councillor Mike Hannon said, ‘The appointment of Celtic is another positive step forward towards the start on site of the Bridge Street Quarter project and the wider regeneration of Warrington town centre. We are particularly pleased to have been able to appoint a local company for the job and Celtic have an excellent track record. The demolition of the old market building marks an exciting new chapter in Warrington Market’s history as it will make way for the construction of what will be a vibrant, new shopping destination that will be at the heart of the new development and a key anchor for the Bridge Street Quarter project’.
