Coventry’s latest major regeneration project, Friargate, is situated on a 37-acre site. It will link Coventry Railway Station with the city’s retail core.
Friargate is the most notable mixed-use project seen in Coventry for a generation.
The new project will deliver 25 efficient and sustainable buildings, including-
- Grade A office buildings
- 215,000 sq ft of retail, restaurants and bars
- Two new hotels
- 400 high-quality residential units
- High quality landscaped public spaces and the
- 15,000 new jobs.
The 215,000 sq ft of retail, restaurants and bars will provide for office workers and visitors. Also, it aims to promote a ‘café culture’ that uses the open public space.
Friargate, Coventry’s latest major regeneration project, uses the current District Heating energy system.
Coventry’s district heating network currently serves civic buildings, sports centre and cathedral.
The idea behind a District Heating system is it switches from fossil fuel to a low carbon source of heat. Therefore, it will help the council meet carbon reduction commitments (CRC).
Over time, it could save up to 25,000 tonnes of carbon when maximised to improve local air quality.
Varlowe job was to route new district pipework to the 25 building, 3,200,000 sq ft mixed-use development.
We prefabricated a large amount of pipework in our workshop. Our transport team delivered the prefabs over many deliveries to the site.
Varlowe delivered the Friargate project on time and within budget.
