“El Rosal” Shopping Centre


Bovis Lend Lease provided Project & Construction Management services for the “El Rosal” shopping centre in Ponferrada, León. The Centre comprises over 50.000m² GLA of retail space over four levels and a two level underground car park for 2.400 vehicles.
When it opened, in October 2007, this Centre was the largest of its kind in the Castilla León Region.
The design of the centre combines a modern and functional structure with a design inspired by Ponferrada´s landscape and industrial heritage.
The project includes external walks and gardens designed to enable easy access to the centre for both pedestrians and the disabled.
The site is located on contaminated, previously industrial, land and during excavation works it was essential to ensure that spoil was safely transported off site and properly managed.
On completion, the centre obtained ISO14001 certification for environmental management, so confirming the high quality of environmental management during the construction period.
Bovis Lend Lease managed some 30 Spanish and Portuguese contractors under an agency construction management form of contract and provided the statutory Dirección de Obra and Dirección de Ejecución roles.
