The Brief

Convert the Crispin Inn pub into a Co-op retail outlet, adding an extension to the rear and fully fitting out the internal rooms. Carry out extensive planning and pre-construction measures to minimise service and delivery issues. Oversee the entire scheme including all demolition, piling, foundation, structural and brick work.

The Scope

  • Demolition of part of the premises
  • All new statutory services
  • Full asbestos removal after R&D survey
  • Extensive stabilisation on poor quality brownfield site
  • Extensive piling, concrete foundations with ring beams
  • Installation of reinforced concrete walls and columns
  • Installation of new steel structural frame
  • Single ply roof with Sika Trocal membrane
  • Traditional brickwork to match existing structure
  • Full concrete floor
  • Complete external drainage works
  • Installation of attenuation tank
  • Car park and line marking
  • Installation of closed board fence for segregation and neighbour privacy
  • Service yard with canopy
  • Fit-out of all internal rooms including cold rooms, offices and washrooms

The Results

This was a very sensitive scheme with an extensive planning and pre-construction process. The rear of the building was removed but planning required that the façade of the original building was maintained. This resulted in a complex design involving the integration of steelworks prior to the removal of the temporary works. We oversaw the entire conversion, extension and fit-out project and worked diligently to ensure local residents would have a welcoming new retail store to shop in. Although this project was a complex one, it was still delivered on time and on budget.
