This Month in Premier Construction 28.2
Welcome to the latest edition of Premier Construction!
In this month’s issue we take a look at the Pearson Park restoration; we check out The Glass Works in Barnsley; and we explore UFC Gym Nottingham.
With a rich history stretching back over 150 years, Pearson Park in Hull is one of the city’s most beloved and recognisable landmarks.
When it was established in 1862, after the land was gifted by Zachariah Pearson, Pearson Park became Hull’s first public park. The park catered to the growing demands of a working class population seeking to make the most of increased leisure time and disposable income. Also known as the People’s Park, Pearson Park still resonates with Victorian grandeur.
In an effort to maintain and secure the future of this grandeur, the park is currently subject to an extensive restoration programme that will conserve and enhance its rich history for many generations to come.
Transforming Barnsley town centre for generations to come, The Glass Works is a vibrant retail, leisure and cultural offering. Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council has invested £180m into the scheme that is set to become a ground-breaking community hub.
The Glass Works is being delivered in 2 phases and will be fully completed in 2021.
UFC GYM® has opened the doors to its first UK fitness club in the diverse and energetic city of Nottingham. Designed by health and fitness industry experts, zynk Design, the impressive 16,500 sq ft venue boasts an imposing interior that matches the brand’s unique character.
As global fitness providers, UFC GYM has built a reputation for successfully combining the disciplines of mixed martial arts and fitness to produce a diverse class programme. Its iconic octagon fighting ring still plays a central role in the brand’s proposition, but its overall fitness offering has evolved to offer a unique experience that appeals to all abilities and ages.
With all this and more, join us as we explore the impressive construction projects that continue to shape our landscape.
