Lidl UK Blackpool
Braithwaite Group were appointed by Lidl UK, to construct a new purpose built 20,000 sq ft store in Blackpool.
The scheme included a major sewer diversion that required sheet piling, due to the depths of the new sewer. Braithwaite Group were working at depths of 9m below ground during these works. The sewer diversion spanned 85 lineal metres over the site.
Braithwaite Group had to work closely with Blackpool City Council in order to facilitate the repositioning of existing services, as well as the existing foul drainage systems, while ensuring there was no disruption to the major road that runs parallel to the site.
The works carried out were the following:
- Steel pile foundations
- Steel portal frame
- Kingspan composite roof and Alucabond wall cladding
- New shop front
- New Tarmac car park
- Full external render
- Complete internal fit out to turnkey status
The project was completed on time and within budget.
