Not surprised on this one, they have built the two huge extensions at the Boohoo warehouse in Burnley.

Boohoo owners line up Barnfield for Dale Street office

7 Sep 2018, 10:43

Charlie Schouten

Main contractor Barnfield is being lined up to deliver five-storey office on Dale Street developed by Kamani Commercial Property, backed by the family behind online fashion retailer Boohoo.

The proposals, designed by architect Falconer Chester Hall, include the redevelopment of a plot at 25-27 Dale Street, where an original building was partially demolished in 2010 following a fire. The site has been used as a surface car park ever since.

Barnfield has been named as main contractor and is set to begin a 70-week programme of works following the discharge of planning conditions, which will allow the 27,500 sq ft scheme to start on site.

This includes the retention of the original building’s central core, which is to be kept as a central focus for the office block.

The office space over the first to fifth floors totals 19,400 sq ft and will feature floorplates of around 3,200 sq ft, while the ground floor and basement will be reconfigured to feature a retail, café or bar space with around 2,500 sq ft at basement level, with access off Dale Street. The ground floor is around 4,100 sq ft.

Overall, the development will offer 27,800 sq ft of commercial space.

During construction, Barnfield is proposing to close Bunsen Street for the duration of works, while there will also be a 45-week closure to Little Lever Street and the Dale Street footpath. Planning consent was secured for the development in October 2017.

Alongside Falconer Chester Hall, the professional team features planner Zerum; heritage consultant Donald Insall Associates; acoustic consultant Hann Tucker Associates; and CFA Archaeology.

Kamani Commercial Property is owned by the Kamani family, which operates Boohoo and its associated fashion brands.

No photo sadly, but it looks like a sample piece of cladding/glazing is being constructed in the gated service yard of 20 Dale Street (owned by Kamani Property too) opposite the site, you can see it when walking past.

Currently it just a small section of the glazing and then cor ten panels are on the floor to be attached around it to create the fins.

I work in the building next to this, and we got quite a scare today. The external solid brick walls all suddenly started shaking and reportedly flexing, with massive bangs as the construction company tore down the attached structure.
Some minor damage may have been caused and a few people left the building, at first we didn't know if it was falling down!

They seemed to just be pulling at the external wall.
