The design and build construction of a 22,000ft2 development for Newmarket Business Park on plots 5 and 6, providing a retail and warehousing unit for Ridgeons who are the largest privately-owned builders’ merchants in the UK.
The development entailed not only the construction of the building itself, but included offices and storage facilities along with a large retail showroom that was fully fitted out to the highest standard. An extensive storage yard, turning and loading area was formed by the combination of retaining walls and earth banking to maximise the area available over the perimeter of the site.
Parkway Construction undertook this contract on a design and build basis which is a move away from tradition for Ridgeons, who prefer the traditional route. This break from tradition allowed Parkway to use its flexible, proactive approach, thus enabling the contract to complete ahead of schedule by 4 weeks; a first for our Client.
