Chequers Shopping Centre

Project Details

A major retail redevelopment within the town’s central Conservation Area.  The scheme has transformed the town centre of Huntingdon.  The project included; new retail units taken by retailers including Marks & Spencers, Next, TK Maxx, and Cafe Nero; refurbishments and landlords works on behalf of tenants for existing retail and cafe/restaurant units as well as major demolition works, works to public highways including pedestrian areas, and a new multi story car park. The retail units were designed to be extremely flexible and adaptable to allow for different sizes and types of retailers and other future tenants without requiring major changes to the building’s external fabric and elevations.
