Location 3: New Build – Retail

This project was built for our client Location 3. The 16,000 square feet building accommodates DFS Furniture on a 1.4 acre site at Margate Road/Westwood Road, immediately opposite the Westwood Cross Shopping Centre.

This project required the removal of existing building foundations and associated concrete over site and the erection of a steel frame building with brick, block and composite cladding.

Works included:

  • Brickwork
  • Curtain Walling
  • Joinery/Doors & Windows
  • Drainage
  • Fire Doors/Fire Protection
  • Floor Slabs/Floor Coverings
  • Ground works/Fencing
  • New entrances under a 278 agreement
  • Customer car park/Service Yard
  • Lightening Protection System
  • M&E Works
  • Painting & Decorating
  • Plaster & Screed
  • Roller Shutters
  • Steelwork/Roof Works

The client required the provision for early access fit-out works six weeks prior to Practical Completion. The removal of World War II unexploded ordnance posed additional challenges during the programme.
