MPN is advising on the structural viability of the multi-million pound transformation of Derby City centre which is planned to take place over the next decade. The city’s shopping centre, the Derbion, is behind the designs to transform the Eagle Market and Derby Theatre area, along with the Bradshaw Retail Park, both of which have recently been showcased to members of the public.

The original Eagle Centre opened in 1975,
with minor 
refurbishments and the addition of the Sainsbury’s extension in the late 90’s when Westfield acquired the centre. It then underwent a major £350m extension, which opened in 2007, with MPN employed by Westfield as the structural engineer for the scheme. In 2013 ownership transferred to Intu and MPN were again retained for the repurposing of the L3 car park to include leisure uses such as Hollywood Bowl and Mini Golf, as  well as other schemes. With the administration of Intu and change of hands in 2020, MPN has been proud to continue its involvement on further improvement works, including the re-positioning

of the international food  court, the re-imagining of the Eagle Market precinct, and the repurposing of the Debenhams store as a flagship Flannels and SportsDirect unit. 


MPN is currently acting as the structural and civil consultant, supporting the planners in driving forward new commercial opportunities for the centre, including major new residential focussed development schemes on Bradshaw Way, which recently received outline planning, and the wider redevelopment of the Eagle Market site.
