The project comprises the design and build construction of 9 prestigious trade retail units totalling 40,000ft2.
Prior to the commencement of construction works, demolition and extensive decontamination and ground improvement of the site was undertaken following a fire to the existing factory on the site.
Site-wide vibro-stabilisation was used to improve the ground bearing capacity for the foundations as well as the floor slabs. This site was situated over a very sensitive aquifer that fed drinking water to Bury St Edmunds, meaning that close control and monitoring was required to avoid any possible pollution.
Large ring beam foundations supported polished block walls, with a steel framed structure supporting curved roofs, a combination of composite and profiled wall cladding together with curtain walling with blue tinted glass, feature canopies, coloured paving and quality landscaping all helped to make this scheme one of the most desirable in Bury St Edmunds.
