This development was completed in the middle of Lincoln's busiest shopping area, so due care and attention had to be given to the public whilst works were undertaken. 

Conversion/refurbishment of 7 dilapidated retail spaces into 7 new lettable retail spaces. 

The works were completed for our long-standing client Lincolnshire Co-op. This was the last phase of the Cornhill redevelopment, where saving the High Street has been the development strategy of our client. 

The site is a conservation area and was of high historical importance to Lincoln City Council and the following completion was given the Lincoln Good Design Award of the Year. 

Works include:

  • Major structural works 
  • New roofing 
  • Chimney rebuilds 
  • New shop frontages 
  • Rear welfare build 
  • New doors and windows 
  • M&E
  • All associated fit out works to create white boxes for new tenants 

Lincolnshire Co-operative employed Belvin Construction in 2021 to undertake a comprehensive renovation project in the heart of Lincoln. Belvin were awarded a traditional JCT contract following a competitive tendering process. On site for nearly 12 months, the team expertly managed a huge range of hurdles associated with working on semi-derelict, historic retail properties within an actively busy pedestrianised part of the city centre. The construction work was particularly challenging in part due to site constraints, though in addition Belvin were required to meet the exacting standards of the local Conservation Office, they had to operate surrounded by trading businesses without impacting their customers and on a limited budget they also had to deliver a quality product deserved of a place within our Cornhill Quarter regeneration scheme. We are extremely pleased with the outcome and we look forward to working with Belvin once again.
