Merrywalks Site Update

Merrywalks Site Update

14 Jan 2019

Work is now well underway on the improvements to the Merrywalks Centre.

Progress on what is happening on site will be provided on a weekly basis and can be found below:

Site Update week commencing January 14th 2019

All the stores at Merrywalks will remain open as normal throughout the duration of the works to improve the centre which is also set to undergo a full rebrand under the new name of Five Valleys within the forthcoming weeks.

Signage is now in place along the scaffold fronting King Street further communicating that the stores situated within and along that elevation are still very much open.

Barnwood, the contractors who are working on the improvements to the King Street elevation have been repairing windows, cleaning up stonework and demolishing the old shop fronts throughout the past few weeks and this work will continue for some weeks to come.

Works to install the new roof above the Centre Management Office is also set to commence this week whilst works to strip off the old slate roof above the EE shop unit will also get underway in preparation of the timber repairs.

Temporary scaffold will be positioned to the escape staircase to the rear of Curio Lounge ready for the old staircase to be removed. Any possible disruption to business or pedestrian access will be communicated further.

The contractors, Berry Systems, are completing the floor coating and line marking works throughout the car park with jet washing and cleaning of the ceilings and floors being undertaken during the evening and therefore an element of disruption is to be expected to parking from floor to floor in these areas.
