Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council is inviting bids for design and build contracts for a £65M retail and leisure scheme at Bridgefield Street in Stockport.


The proposed 40,000 sq ft ‘Redrock Stockport’ development will comprise a 10 screen multiplex cinema, a 350 space multi storey car park, retail space and restaurants. The project will also involve refurbishment works to properties on the nearby Prince’s Street, cinema fit out and elements of public realm work.


Bidders are being given a month to complete PQQs (pre-qualifying questionnaires) before a shortlist of contractors is invited to submit tenders in March.


The Council said the scheme may be broadened to include recladding works to an existing Debenhams store – subject to further discussions with the retailer – and there will be an advance highway works contract.


The Council says the Redrock Stockport development will provide a modern and exciting leisure offer in the town centre that will complement existing retail provision at the Merseyway Shopping Centre located immediately south of Bridgefield Street.


Firms already involved on the project include BDP, which has been working with the Council for a number of years on various masterplan options, evaluating a range of potential schemes. Drivers Jonas Deloitte, Lunson Mitchenall and Gardiner & Theobald and Atkins also supported the Council on the development of the scheme and the outline planning process.


The project was renamed Redrock Stockport in October last year, having previously been called the Bridgefield development. Stockport Council executive member for economic development and regeneration Cllr Patrick McAuley said: “We felt the new name for the scheme had to strike a balance between creating a vibrant, urban brand while connecting with Stockport’s heritage.


“The Redrock brand will act as a catalyst for the ongoing regeneration of Stockport and will help to boost visitors to the town centre.”
