Design and construction of six new build retail warehouse units with associated external yards, car parking and landscaping works. Additionally, the works comprised construction of a new standalone KFC Drive-Thru Restaurant. Limited fit-out works were carried for occupiers including B&M retail and Pets at Home. The works required extensive ecological co-ordination including creation of new habitat, trapping and a relocation of an existing badger sett. This was our second project for Location 3 Properties having previously constructed Mid-Sussex Retail Park in Burgess Hill.
Additionally, s278 highways works were carried out to connect the site to the adopted road network. Drainage improvements were also carried out under s278 and s104 agreements. Value engineering carried out included re-design of site levels and retaining walls to reduce the volume of excess soils needing to be removed from site. Our cost exercise demonstrated that it was more economical to increase the height and extent of retaining walls than it was to dispose of soils material off-site.
