Work on Guildford’s Tunsgate Quarter will not be delayed despite the scaffolding contractor going into administration, the project’s developers have said.
Scaffolding at the site had to be replaced after the company originally contracted to do the work became unable to complete it.
Once complete, Tunsgate Quarter will comprise of 26 units in total, 18 of which will be retail stores and the other eight will be upmarket restaurants.
The development will connect the High Street with Castle Street and will have a striking new atrium in the middle and two new levels to the rear.
Earlier this year, developer Queensbury said cosmetics brand Bobbi Brown, lifestyle store The White Company and laid-back furniture company Loaf will all take up retail units once the project is complete.
Andy Cox, project manager at Queensbury, said: “The original scaffolding contractor working on Tunsgate Quarter went into administration some eight weeks ago.
“A new scaffolding contractor was appointed promptly and it replaced the frame within three days with no impact to the schedule of works.
“Queensberry remains committed to delivering a modern and high-quality new shopping and leisure destination for the people of Guildford and is looking forward to launching the scheme later this year.”
Work began on Tunsgate Quarter, previously known as Tunsgate Square, in December 2016.
The new development is due to open to shoppers in October.
