Project Award: Feethams Leisure, Darlington
Barr Construction has awarded Speedclad the contract for design, supply and installation of the ceramic granite rainscreen facade on a new £30 million leisure development in Darlington.
Developer, Terrace Hill, has collaborated with Darlington Borough Council on the Feethams Leisure development, which occupies the 0.75 hectare site of the town's former bus station. The scheme will consist of a 9-screen Vue cinema, 80-bed Premier Inn and a variety of national eateries and local independent restaurants. The design, by local architects, Niven, combines contemporary style with innovation and sustainability and incorporates underground car parking and outdoor terraces. Once complete, Feethams Leisure will create 500 new jobs and be an integral part of Darlington town centre.
