SMR Architects are pleased to announce the completion of two new retail units on Fairfield Way, Whitby. After achieving planning approval in December 2017, SMR Architects experienced a successful collaboration between the Client, Lateral Property Group and the appointed Main Contractor, Havercroft Construction.

The proposed scheme provides a total of 32,920 sq ft of modern retail space facing Stainsacre Lane (the A171), ancillary accommodation, its own customer car park and a dedicated service yard. The project delivers a very good asset to the Retail Development Strategy as defined by the Local Authority. SMR Architects hope, that through our design utilising a contemporary mix of cladding and shopfront glazing, along with strong pedestrian links to the parking, we meet the expectations the local community of this well-loved seaside town.

Mathew Smalley noted “We are pleased to have been involved with the delivery of this project on behalf of Lateral Property Group and seeing this Brownfield regeneration design come to fruition. This completed project reflects the latest step in our growing relationship with Lateral and we are delighted to have been engaged to assist them to design and deliver future schemes.

This successful project was also the first collaboration between Havercroft Construction and SMR, and we look forward to working with them again on future projects.”

The retailers operating these stores are aiming to open in May 2019, and SMR Architects wish them every success
