The contract period was 20 weeks.
The scope of work was to decommission and demolish the existing petrol filling station and construct a new 24/7 operational filling station with the sales building to include the Simply Food M&S offer.
The site had specific requirements as it was located directly under overhead high voltage electrical transition lines. The existing ground levels were reduced and retaining walls were constructed to neighbouring boundaries to accommodate the increased site area and overhead lines.
A specialised forecourt canopy was constructed acting as a Faraday cage to protect the site from the overhead transition cables along with an extensive electrical earthing system.
The contract period was 16 weeks.
Construction of a new to industry petrol filling station on a Greenfield land parcel adjacent to an established restaurant and hotel.
The site access road was shared with the neighbouring properties which were already trading. It was vital to maintain full access at all times to ensure no disruption to their normal trading activities. Deliveries were scheduled to avoid peak trading times and road cleanliness was maintained regularly by deploying a road sweeper.
The PFS project provided both PLG & HGV Fuel forecourts using a pressure fuel system providing four PLG pumps and two HGV. A state of the art carwash facility and new outlet for the Marks & Spencer Simply Food store.
The drainage system included a surface water attenuation tank with a storage capacity of 105m3 and a Hydro-brake flow control valve achieving a discharge rate of 3.0l/s. This ensured water discharge from site was within the capabilities of the existing drainage infrastructure.
The contract period was 14 weeks.

Completion of an asbestos survey prior to demolition identified asbestos and asbestos containing materials within the fabric of the existing structures. This was removed prior to demolition and disposed of in accordance with the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.
Due to the location of the site there was the possibility of unexploded ordnance (UXO) from WWII. A UXO risk assessment was completed and suitable control measures put in place to safeguard site operatives and the local community. Alongside this there was contaminated ground present as a result of a post war dye works on the site and Japanese knotweed which both required specialist disposal.
Site access was shared with the ASDA supermarket which remained open throughout construction. As part of the scope of works the road was to be widened to accommodate a new filter lane for the petrol filling station. This required expert planning and traffic management system to avoid any disruption to the store.
Out of hours working was also employed for surfacing works to the road as a strategy to minimise any disruption. Client relations were maintained through regular meetings with the store manager. This ensured continuity of vital communications and provided the store with regular updates of site progress.
Due to the size and location of the site a delivery schedule was devised to avoid peak times and a just in time delivery process was utilised to maximise working space on site.

The project was to decommission and demolish the existing petrol filling station and construct a new operational 3 pump filling station with 2no. 60,000 litre fuel storage tanks and shop including the Simply Food M&S offer.
Careful demolition by our trained operatives was required to ensure no damage or disruption was caused as the existing car wash structure was adjoining the neighbouring property.
Due to the location of the site being in close proximity to residential properties, it was vital that we maintained excellent relations with the local community. This included adequate control measures being in place for dust and noise generated. Consideration for working hours and local access roads kept clean and unobstructed
Our senior contracts manager was in regular contact with homeowners throughout the construction providing updates as the job progressed. This job was successfully completed to the client specification and programme with minimal disruption to local and neighbouring properties.
