Situated in Radcliffe, Bury

<p class=”sub-heading”>Construction of a single-storey portal frame SPAR retail unit and petrol filling station on a brownfield site in Radcliffe</p>

The project was located just off the Bury & Bolton Road, and the works included all associated infrastructure, forecourt, and fuel installations. Additional work was also required and included the installation of an over-ground and underground specialist drainage system which was imported from Germany. B&E Boys liaised with specialist subcontractors to provide the associated works to the fuel tank and forecourt canopy installations. The works were complicated and included the pressure grouting of a coal seam and installation of substantial specialist retaining structures; this was followed by ground level remodelling in preparation for the new infrastructure of the convenience store and petrol filling station. The building itself featured a composite roof with brickwork cavity walls and glazed curtain walling. It was essential that care was taken to ensure that the nearby water course did not become contaminated by the works.
