Haskins Snowhill

Earlier this year, the Haskins centre in Crawley opened the doors to its temporary building at the Snowhill site.

Phase one of the Snowhill centre’s redevelopment plan has now finished, including:
  • New temporary building erected
  • Half of new car park completed
  • Car Park entrance has moved
  • New landscaping and trees in place
The Snowhill centre redevelopment plan is a 12-month project. It’ll culminate in the main centre re-opening for business in spring 2020.
 
In the meantime, Haskins will continue to trade in its temporary building.
 
Haskins worked with Barnwood Construction Ltd to install its temporary building. This is while work is underway to create a new permanent facility.
 
The temporary centre covers an indoor retail space of 1,575sqm. It boasts a significant outdoor plant area (900sqm) as well as a 180-seat café.
 
Phase two of the redevelopment plan is now underway, which includes:
  • Working on demolishing the old building
  • Starting to build the new garden centre
 
The new Snowhill centre opening in spring 2020 will boast a retail space of 11,813 sqm. This includes an outdoor plant area and 440-seat restaurant. The restaurant will have space for 170 restaurant guests on an outdoor patio.
 
Car parking will also be improved with 346 spaces available.
