Maidstone Retail Park

The London Road Retail Park in Maidstone, Kent has been transformed from a 25 years old first generation retail park to become a state-of-the-art retail experience with a contemporary look and feel that is designed to attract new retailers and shoppers.

The original retail park building was 25 years old and beginning to show its age. A complete re-imaging programme was called for to ensure shoppers would continue to visit the retail park that featured household retail names such as Argos, MFI, Land of Leather, Paul Simon and Dunelm Mill. Work commenced in May 2007 with a challenging deadline to have the refurbishment completed by November 2007. This was imperative to ensure the retailers could maximise the benefits of the pre-Xmas period.

Hawkins Roofing Ltd as an approved Platinum Specification Roofing Contractor was thereby selected to supply all the roofing and cladding products for the London Road Retail Park refurbishment project. Steel was selected for the project for a combination of aesthetic reasons coupled with the proven value for money and time saving characteristics of the material.
