Kier was selected ahead of stern competition as preferred developer by the London Borough of Hounslow Council to regenerate the historic Western International Market.

Key facts:
LocationHaynes Road, Hayes
Value£10 million

Having worked closely with the Tenants Association of the market and the Council, Kier obtained planning consent for this well known site at Junction 3 of the M4. The flagship project included a new 136,000 sq ft produce hall and a 38,000 sq ft flower hall with associated maintenance and entry buildings.

Working alongside the London Borough of Hounslow, Kier has delivered new state-of-the-art facilities to replace the obsolete existing premises.

Kier has also developed the former market. Plot 1 was undertaken speculatively on a 50:50 basis with clients of DTZ Investment Management creating a speculative 56,000 sq ft Trade City development consisting of 9 terraced units.

Plot 2 was pre-let to Costco for a 136,000 sq ft membership warehouse club. The development opened for trade in the summer of 2014 and was pre-funded.

A site sale of Plot 3 was completed to Virtus for a 180,000 sq ft data centre.
