Piece Hall, Halifax receives £250k injection

Piece Hall

The multi-million pound project to revamp the Piece Hall in Halifax has received a £250,000 injection

AV Group is delighted to be involved with helping Graham Construction transform this unique site in Halifax into a thriving visitor attraction. We have installed 10 welfare units for Graham Construction’s contractor team which are lined up proudly against the backdrop of the stunning Italianate Square.

As construction work continues apace there is further exciting news this month that the project has also received a £250,000 injection from the Garfield Weston Foundation.

Garfield Weston is a family-funded, grant-making trust which has been supporting UK charities for over 50 years and this money is supporting the conservation of the Georgian Piece Hall in Halifax.
The Huddersfield Examiner has the full story here.

The building work being carried out by Graham Construction includes major improvements to visitor facilities, including modern granite seating, level access across the courtyard, customer lifts, enhanced lighting and a central space for heritage events, markets and activities.

Shop units are also being upgraded to modern standards, providing high-quality retail and business locations to attract a mixture of shops, cafés, restaurants and commercial tenants. Companies with a strong regional presence, as well as small, independent and creative businesses, are among those expected to be based there, creating local jobs and a vibrant experience for visitors.

We are thrilled to be playing a small part in helping to secure a bright future for this Yorkshire gem!

Peel Park Campus topped out

The development of the University of Salford’s Peel Park campus has reached a milestone with a topping out ceremony for the £81m project.

Graham Construction has completed the steel frameworks for the site which will consist of nine blocks ranging from five to nine storeys. We reported this project here, back in February.

Peel Park will provide a total of 1,387 new bed spaces across two separate sites.

Graham Construction started work on the project in November 2013 as part of the Salford Villages Consortium.

This includes Graham Investment Projects, Campus Living Villages, Equitix and Kier Project Investment, who have jointly invested and developed the property with the project finance being provided by Standard Life Investments.

The site is expected to be open by September 2015.
