Contracted and working with a respected local Doncaster Based Interior and Shop Fit contractor – Oakwood Contracts Ltd, we were appointed to completed the design, construct and fit out a new road site Costa Coffee retail unit in just 12 weeks. The project involved a full new build operation and requirements to construct additional car parking spaces. The build specification involved pad and strip foundations, structural steelwork, curved aluminium standing seam roof, cladded walls with aluminium curtain walling. All new incoming services and drainage was provided.
Being on the site of a current KFC Drive through restaurant presented space and logistical issues on a very constrained site with limited access for deliveries and parking.
Delivering the project with minimum disruption to the KFC business activity
The construction time line of 12 weeks.
The Solution & Key Achievements
Early involvement in the design process and procurement to ensure all elements of the build considered the site restrictions and program for a best fit outcome.
Working closely with the client, Restaurant Regional/site Managers and professional team created a shared team approach where all inputs where valued. A collaborative and transparent approach was adopted which resulted in added value to the scheme though gains in Quality, Program and delivery management time
Key site disruption activities such as excavation and deliveries were carried out early in the mornings to avoid busy restaurant opening hours.
The project was delivered on programme to the highest quality and coffee was being served to the public 10 minutes after the successful handover meeting.
Carried out with the no disruption to adjacent KFC business activities
Excellent site management resulted in providing an outstanding finished product and on-going client relationship, promoting and leading to another project appointment at Chesterfield for a similar new build unit.
