Westfield London is expanding

6 March 2017

2008 saw the opening of one of the larger shopping centres in Great Britain: Westfield London. This shopping centre boasts no fewer than 360 luxury shops, a cinema and several popular restaurants and bars. The shopping centre has had a very positive impact on London; it has survived the recession, improved London's retail landscape and rejuvenated the local area.

Expansion: Westfield London Phase 2
The shopping centre is now expanding by some 740,000 sq ft of high-quality retail, residential and mixed-use space, 230,000 sq ft of which are destined for a John Lewis flagship store. The entire plan was designed by Sheppard Robson.

Rooftop car parking
This expansion will also increase the car parking capacity from 4,500 to 5,300 slots. These new parking slots will be constructed over the shops. Similar to the projects in Bradford and London Stratford, Westfield again chose Pardak®110 as the construction material for this rooftop carpark. We will start installing it in late March. The total extent of this assignment is almost 10,000 square metres!
