New Waitrose store in Jesmond complete

04 Nov 2011

The new Waitrose store in Jesmond, Newcastle-upon-Tyne is now complete. The £340,000 ground works and civils development was undertaken for client RG Group.

The size of the site and interfacing with other contractors, led to constricted working conditions. However, this was managed to ensure the project was completed within the 16 week programme period.

Works incorporated drainage, ducting, concrete ground beams and isolated foundation bases, sub-base and gas membrane to ground floor slabs, lift shaft and stairwell base construction, suspended concrete floors, high specification paving, minor 278 street works, together with the installation of bollards and street furniture and footpath construction.

This is another addition to CHC's expanding retail development portfolio, following the recent completion of the ASDA Superstore in Birkenhead.

The new store officially opened its doors to the public on Wednesday 2nd November.
