Pacy and Wheatley Construction, along with Oakwood Contracts Ltd, were awarded the contract to complete the design, construct and fit out of a new road side Costa Coffee retail unit in just 12 weeks. The project involved a full new build operation, with a challenging drainage connection. 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 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.
Maintaining KFC access whilst connecting foul drainage across main access road.
Delivering the project with minimum disruption to the KFC business activity.
The construction time line of 12 weeks.
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, drainage connections 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.
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.
It’s good to see a contractor taking such a proactive approach to H&S! I’ll be using your site as a benchmark for projects of a similar nature in the future!
