B&E Boys are pleased to announce that work on new project, with a value of £1,400,000, is set to commence in October 2020. The project involves the construction of a SPAR Garage and associated convenience store on a site that occupies a prominent position off Bury & Bolton Road in Radcliffe.
There will be a 33-week on-site programme of work on the project for the client, James Hall Limited. The project involves the redevelopment of a former landmark pub and car park into a SPAR convenience store, petrol station and jet wash facility. The pub closed back in 2005 and the building then housed a pair of Indian restaurants before it was demolished two years ago.
The works involve pressure grouting a coal seam and specialist retaining structures. This will be followed by the remodelling of the ground levels to prepare for the new infrastructure of the petrol station and convenience store.
Pressure grouting will be required. As the site overlays the workings of a historic coal mine, the site falls some 3 metres from the top to the bottom. As a result, the installation of a substantial kingpost retaining wall will be required. The building itself will be a steel portal frame construction with a composite steel cladding system to the roof and brick cavity walls.
B&E Boys will liaise with a number of client specialist subcontractors to provide the associated works to the petrol tank and forecourt canopy installations. The excellent news is that the new convenience store will create 20 new jobs in all. This is a real boost for the local area.
