Barnes Construction has completed work on the second phase of retail development at Futura Park in Ipswich.
The development, on part of the former Cranes engineering works site, opposite the John Lewis at home and Waitrose stores which opened last year, has added six new units totalling 66,000sq ft.
They have been let to furnishings stores DFS, Paul Simon Curtains, Furniture Village and Oak Furniture Land, together with Costa Coffee and Carphone Warehouse.
Nick Fayers, managing director at Barnes Construction, said: “As an Ipswich-based company it has been very rewarding to play a key role in a local project that is a stone’s throw from our head office at Ransomes Europark and that will offer further retail choice to the public, bringing additional revenue into the town.
“Futura Park is shaping up to be one of the town’s most appealing retail parks, underpinned by the popular flagship John Lewis at home and Waitrose store, and we are delighted to be able to include it in our project portfolio.”
Futura Park is a joint venture between developers and investors Generator Group and Aquila House Holdings – AquiGen – which focuses on regeneration projects.
