An 80,000 sq ft store, housing famous brands across beauty, fashion, home and children’s. With the additional fit out of two new restaurants Fuego and Mason & Rye. This was a very high quality, high spec contract, completed on time for Simons Construction. Over 3 floors, ceramic tiles, wood, carpets and vinyls made up the bulk of the flooring with a granite staircase templated and fitted on site.
The 1100m2 herringbone ceramics to the 1st floor is one of the features of this contract, a contract we are proud of. Many thanks and praise to all the Floor Form staff and fitters involved in this one.
August was a busy month with quite a few jobs handing over in the UK. A couple of the them where quite prestigious, high profile jobs.
Most notably was Liverpool FC new Super Store for Graham Fit Out. This was a challenging project for a number of reasons, the main one being the completion date. As the say the start of the season waits for no man, so there could be no delays with this one. Thankfully all was completed on time and Liverpool legends Ian Rush and Robbie Fowler where there on open day. Approx. 1600m2 of LVT, carpet and safety flooring was installed over two floors. The lay direction of the vinyl wood effect on an angle of 33 degrees created a great effect.
Comprising of both back of house and sales floor finishes, Goldsmiths in Chelmsford is finished to the highest of retail standards.
Bringing together luxurious carpets, rich walnut timber & crisp ceramics, the finished look is reflective of the quality of the premier and designer watch brands, gold and diamond jewellery on offer within the store.
Completed by Contracts Manager Chris Brown, Chelmsford is the latest in a number of successful Goldsmiths project carried out by Graham Construction and Floorform.
September has been a very busy month with the completion and handover on numerous projects.
The Riverside project in Stafford, a mixed use Retail development constructed by a good customer of ours, Simons construction Group, has kept us very busy with a number of contracts totalling over 12,000m2. We have completed work on the new Marks and Spencer and Primark stores on this site along with floor preparation on a number of other units.
Andy Hall has turned out another great project with McLaughlin and Harvey at M+S Biggleswade (5000m2), following up the success of M+S Longbridge last year. This is proving to be a fantastic partnership. Well done Andy.
Primark Carlisle proved to be a challenging project for Chris Higham. The refurbishment of an old retail unit at The Lanes shopping centre was finally completed under difficult circumstances.
September also seen the opening of a new Jaguar Landrover showroom in west London. The project was very demanding and quality had to be of the highest order.
September has also seen continued success with shopping centre refurbishments, contracts have recently commenced in St. Johns Liverpool (4500m2) and The Darwin Centre Shrewsbury (2200m2). Darwin is challenging as this is a live mall refurbishment where we are having to make sure that the mall is fully open for trading after every night shift.
On a lighter note special recognition must be paid to one of our fitting crews. Warren Rugg (email@example.com) came to the rescue of a damsel in distress whilst completing M+S Simply Food Crawley. A freezer unit unexpectedly broke down 2 days before hand over. Warren, along with his team, filled their van full of frozen produce and transported it a few miles into the main M+S store in Crawley. Not once but three times. “Warren Rugg, our knight in shining armour, well a white transit van !!!”
