Willmott Dixon's team of mixed-use construction specialists are building Rochdale Riverside, one of the town's most important schemes in a generation.

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, including a six-screen cinema, which will sit above the retail units. It is very similar to the scheme in Beverley, Yorkshire.

The development, with a central pedestrian street a key feature, will transform the retail and entertainment offering in the town and encourage further inward investment.

On arrival, visitors will be given a welcome talk and provided with PPE. 

Visitors will then be taken on a site tour on a live site. 

Works to see will be - 

groundworks will be ongoing including foundations and drainage

Roofing , cladding and glazing

Mechnical & Electrical Installations
