Next Home and Fashion store

Gallagher Ltd constructed a new Next Home and Fashion store at Eclipse Park in Maidstone as Principal Contractor.

The new concept Home and Fashion store at Eclipse Park is one of approximately twenty to be constructed in the UK and offer homeware, DIY products and fashion in a state of the art store.

The store was built to a high specification utilising brickwork, curtain walling, limestone cladding and Kentish Ragstone.

The key elements of the works were:

  • Forming the new site levels for the building and car parking areas
  • ‘Suds’ drainage and service installations
  • Boundary retaining walls
  • Foundations for a new building
  • Steel frame
  • Roofing and cladding
  • Internal floor slab
  • External yard area and car parking

All aggregates and concrete were supplied by Gallagher Aggregates Ltd.

Gallagher Ltd won a Considerate Constructors Scheme 2015 National Site Award for the new Next Home and Fashion store at Eclipse Park in Maidstone, Kent. Gallagher will find out in April if the Awards is Gold, Silver or Bronze.

As a high quality development, this new store is a fitting addition to Eclipse Park, Maidstone’s most modern mixed office and retail campus close to Junction 7 of the M20. This new store represents a major investment into Maidstone and created 180 jobs.
