Client: Greyhound Retail Park / Henry Riley LLP Duration: 12 weeks Location: Chester
Acting as principal contractor 7formation are currently carrying out major re development project at the Greyhound Retail Park in Chester. Working closely with Property and Construction Consultants Henry Riley and Architects Urban Edge, 7formation are responsible for the reconfiguration of three front elevation shop entrances with the added pressure of maintaining a safe trading environment throughout the twelve week programme.
The works will include the removal of the existing glass portals forming the entrance canopy and extensive structural alterations to the front elevation steel frames and roofs. A bespoke scaffolding and advertising hoarding have been erected externally to provide a safe working area, whilst internally a protected walkway and full height front elevation hoarding has been installed to provide the customers with a safe and presentable shopping experience. Communication on projects like these is paramount in maintaining a safe working environment. The site manager holds daily meetings with the store managers, providing them with an update on the works planned for the day to minimise the impact on the stores trading. New external cladding will complete the look and provide a modern new shopping experience. The Greyhound Retail Park project is due to finish at the beginning of August.
