April 2011 saw the start of phase 1 of our partnership contract with Tesco stores and Vinci Plc for the enabling demolition works as part of the £ 7, 000, 000 extension project at Tesco in Mansfield.
This complex project was completed within the restrictive confines of the live Tesco Store and included for Internal soft stripping of staff and canteen areas, demolition of 3 retail units immediately adjacent to the store including careful separation dismantling techniques as one elevation was adjoining another Argos retail unit which was to remain. Our works also included for the stripping of cladding along the entire gable end of the store to enable the subsequent extension programme. Following the demolition significant quantities of concrete hardstanding and foundations were broken out and removed off site for recycling.
This complex project required flexibility and a pro – active project to daily changes in site conditions brought about by the construction process and working in close proximity to other contractors as well as the live Tesco store which remained open and trading 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. we are happy to report the works were completed on time and to the satisfaction of our client.
A detailed Case Study will be published once the second phase of the works is completed in August 2011.
