Description
Architect: Chapman Taylor Partners

Facts:
Over 2 million bricks, 10,000 tons of steel, 98,000m³ of concrete (enough to fill the old Wembley Stadium, London to a depth of 8m), 21,000 sq ft of glass and 10 miles of drainage pipes were used to construct the Meadowhall Shopping Centre.

The entire Meadowhall site, including car parks, covers an area of 2000 acres.

Meadowhall has a total leasable area of 1.3 million square feet.


History:
Until 24 February 1984 the land on which Meadowhall stands was occupied by a steelworks owned by Hadfields Ltd. When the steelworks closed, the land lay derelict until construction on Meadowhall began. Before work could commence, 100,000 m³ of contaminated waste had to be removed from the site.
