Newport Street Shop Fronts, Bolton
Refurbishment to the retail/commercial units along Newport Street in Bolton as part of the Bolton Council Regeneration Programme. The refurbishment works consisted of providing new shop frontages and steel frames outside the stores to provide a uniformed and consistent look. Additionally, new security shutters, lighting and signage were installed. The Regeneration Programme has completed over 7 phases. Due to the phases falling over the Christmas period, Phases 6 and 7 were completed in January to avoid minimal disruptions to businesses. The works were undertaken in a complex, live environment within vacant and occupied trading environments. Therefore, regular communication and coordination were paramount with the retailers, the public and the council.
