Lincolnshire’s first Hobbycraft store was built by Lindum on the city’s Valentine Retail Park, Tritton Road. It was constructed on the site of an old American Golf unit, which relocated to a new Lindum-built shop elsewhere on the Park

In addition to Lindum Construction’s work on site, Lindum Plant division carried out careful dismantling of the old unit, Lindum’s Waste division removed and recycled demolition materials and KGM, the Group's roofing and cladding division, worked on the exterior of the building.

The shop welcomed its first customers on April 4, 2018 and Hobbycraft’s head of retail, Bruce Gibson said: “The store is beautiful, just stunning. It’s the best one so far!”

The Hobbycraft unit is the latest in a long line of projects to be completed by Lindum on the Valentine Retail Park.

MD of Lindum Construction, Simon Gregory, said extensive planning and safety assessments were required throughout the project as the site was a ‘live’ retail park, which is used by hundreds of people every day.

“We are delighted to deliver this job – on time and on budget – for a valued Lindum client,” he said.

“The team worked hard to make sure the existing retailers and their customers could carry on with business as usual.
“We are very happy with the final result.”
