British construction services company Bowmer + Kirkland has won a contract from The Crown Estate for a £155m project to transform a major retail park, Fosse Park, in Leicester, UK.

The Crown Estate, on behalf of the Fosse Partnership, has appointed the contractors to develop the Fosse Park, which will include a new retail extension as well as a re-developed food court.

Expected to be one of the leading shopping destinations in the UK, the park will comprise 13 new retail stores and 16 additional food and beverage units.

The Crown Estate senior asset manager for Fosse Park Mike Bell said: “Today marks an important milestone in our investment at Fosse Park, where we’re focused on continuing to improve our offer for visitors.

“We are excited for construction to begin and look forward to working closely with our contractors and Fosse Park’s retailers to continue building on the scheme’s success as a brilliant place for visitors, shoppers and the local community to enjoy.”

Along with Bowmer + Kirkland (B+K), The Crown Estate has also selected Fox Lloyd Jones as project managers for the new development.

Bowmer + Kirkland regional director Gary Bradley said: “We are proud to have been appointed by The Crown Estate to deliver this exciting extension to Fosse Park.

“Some of our staff who worked on the original scheme 30 years ago are still with us and it’s great for them to see how the development is growing.”

The Crown Estate is also investing about £4.9m to continue its work with Faircloth Construction to modernise store facades at Fosse Park as well as to deliver improvements in the car park and surrounding public realm.

Faircloth Construction director Darren Faircloth said: “We are delighted to be continuing our work with The Crown Estate to modernise the look and feel of the current development.

“The works, including the refurbishment of store facades and improvements to the car park and surroundings, will deliver an enhanced shopping experience for customers and exciting new opportunities for retailers.”

The extension is planned to be completed in 2020.
