Drake Circus, Plymouth

Drake Circus Shopping Centre is a 425,000 square feet (39,484 m2) covered shopping mall in the centre of Plymouth, England, which opened in October 2006.

The new building was designed by London-based architects Chapman Taylor and built by Bovis Lend Lease. In 2007 it won two retail industry national awards, one of which was the Retail Week magazine’s “Shopping Location of the Year”.

Operating as a sub-contractor, Duffy Group completed the external brickwork, internal blockwork and rubblestone walling package.
