cut and carve
We have completed a number of large ’Cut & Carve’ projects, involving the structural re-engineering of internal space, requiring the re-location of load bearing elevations as well as the reinstallation of all services associated with the operation of a store. These projects have been carried out in live trading environments as well as part of new store fit-out shells.
- Proven track record. Our complex structural engineering projects span high street locations, shopping centres, and retail parks, and includes such blue chip clients as Primark and B&Q.
- Comprehensive expertise. Dedicated, ready-to-work, national supply chain and expert project teams, with extensive experience in managing internal structural engineering and alterations.
- Business as usual. Programmes developed to minimise store down time and disruption, utilising night working where possible. M&E specialists to re-work associated services including the installation of temporary works/services where required.
- Expert advice. Includes provision of design and engineering advice and solutions alongside preferred consultants; identification of value engineering opportunities to decrease capital expenditure, increase value for money or lifetime value; and store planning solutions to ensure customer path is optimised.
