Telford Shopping Centre

Specialist envelope contractor Spectrum has delivered an extensive scope of roofing and facade works at Telford Shopping Centre.

The Northern Quarter is one of four major development schemes which are part of a £200 million, five-year strategy to regenerate Telford Shopping Centre. The new Northern Quarter will create around 70,000 sq ft of retail space in up to seven stores designed to attract new brands to the town.

The new building was constructed around the shell of an existing ASDA supermarket, making the redevelopment quicker and reducing its environmental impact.

Spectrum worked closely with main contractor McLaughlin & Harvey and Architect Benoy on the striking contemporary design which includes a dramatic metallic drum which will hide the service yard while creating a highly visible, iconic arrival point. Depending upon the viewing angle, different wave lengths of light are reflected from the rainscreen panels resulting in an ever-changing colour gradient.

Our scope of works also included the feature cladding to the new border mall entrance creating a gateway tower to provide a greater sense of arrival at the shopping centre. In addition, the north facade has been given an exciting three-dimensional look using innovative Trespa panels.

The new retail development is a huge focus for the town, offering a place where people can shop, socialise and be entertained.
