Rochdale Riverside Project Progress 04 Mar 2019
Rochdale Riverside Project Progress
Rochdale Riverside is the landmark regeneration of Rochdale town centre. Longworth have been on-site since October 2018 and the enormous site is really taking shape. Longworth have been appointed as the roofing and cladding contractor by Willmott Dixon to install Euramax shingles in Canyon Copper from their Jeweler Range to the 6 screen, 20,000 sq ft (1,858 sq m) cinema Reel Cinema. Rockpanel lines in 2 colour shades as well as Eurobond composite panels will be installed to the retail areas.
The sprawling roof areas at Rochdale Riverside will consist of a range of materials including, Danosa Duratec Hot Melt, Euroclad Elite 3 and SIG Hydrostop AH25 Liquid Waterproofing. All fixings will be supplied by our trusted supply-chain partner SFS who have been heavily involved with the project from an early stage.
Developed by a joint venture of Genr8 and Kajima in partnership with Rochdale Borough Council, it will include 200,000 square foot of retail and leisure accommodation in the town centre, a six-screen cinema will underpin the leisure element of the centre, which will provide bars and restaurants, as well as new retail units.
The Rochdale Riverside development, with a central pedestrian street a key feature, will transform the retail and entertainment offering in the town and encourage further inward investment.
The project has dedicated site management which is being led by Longworth’s very expereince Project Leader, Lee Smith. Lee is joined on-site by Operations Manager, Mark Campbell and Construction Manager Steven Hayes.
Longworth are well on with the Danosa Hot Melt and Euroclad Elite 3 roofing systems. Be sure to check the Longworth news page regularly as monthly progress photos will be posted.
In the images below you can see roof of the North Block getting loaded out with the Euroclad Elite 3 roofing system by the huge and very impressive mobile crane. The MSU block under construction and the composite panel build up enveloping the projecting facade of the cinema with a little of the Euramax shingles on show.
