Gallagher was the groundworks and frame contractor for the construction of a new leisure building at Lakeside Shopping Centre in Essex.
We were identified by McLaren as its preferred partner for this project at an early stage, providing key support to its bid throughout the tender process with our construction and tender teams heavily involved.
The project is a new two-storey building with retail and leisure units. Construction consisted of piled foundations, suspended ground floor bed, steel frame with holorib concrete topping, ground and first floor slabs and reinforced concrete frame with portal frame to first floor.
Externally we laid kerbs and edgings and prepared sub-bases to receive tarmac and paving finishes laid by other contractors.
Overall the programme was fast and good logistics management and co-ordination with other trades was vital for the successful completion of the contract within the agreed timescale.
McLaren awarded Gallagher this contract following the success of other recent projects we have undertaken for them.
