Co-operative building

In 2019 Big Red were delighted to be appointed as the main contractor on the old Co-Op project in Huddersfield Town centre. The iconic building is set to be renovated into 138 student apartments due for completion in 2020.

The 100-year-old building has many uses in the past from department store to a night club. This new development is sympathetic to the original heritage of the building and will see the inclusion of 3 additional floors fitted to the top of the building.

In the previous year Big Red were delighted to complete the demolition phase of the project as the principal contractor. This element removed all of the old fabric of the building and allowed us to start the construction phase with a relatively blank canvas.

Major development project’s like these are our bread and butter at Big Red. But, any time we can be a part of these projects in our hometown, it all adds to the excitement. We believe that construction in Huddersfield is something which benefits everybody in this brilliant town.

We will be adding progress reports of the Co-Op project so stay tuned!
