Our Projects

Anytime Fitness & Poundworld

Following a competitive tender process, we were instructed to carry out the subdivision of a former department store into three units, and associated landlord works for incoming tenants at Fore Street, Trowbridge. The contract was awarded by Sanderson Weatherall on behalf of HJ Knee. The fas- paced contract took 12 weeks to complete. Handover took place over two stages with a unit prepared and handed over to Poundworld within 3 weeks of starting works. Works involved extensive strip out and specialist demolition works. The units were split using a mixture of metal stud partitioning and block work. New electrical and waters services were brought into the units. Emergency lighting and a fire alarm system was installed. A toilet block was formed for unit B including all finishes. Unit B also had a new doorway installed to the front of the store. Security doors to the rear of units A and B were replaced. A new double-height opening was formed at the rear of the building to form an access to unit C, along with removal of part of the floor slab to create a double height stairwell, lift shaft and reception area for incoming tenant, Anytime Fitness. A metal staircase was installed along with curtain walling and a disabled lift. Externally, ramps were formed, including the building of dwarf walls and brick paving. Carpets and vinyl floorings were also fitted. Works were completed under JCT Minors Works 2001 and the final account came to £260,000 plus VAT.
