Chalcroft has built a reputation for being a construction partner of choice for the retail sector. The company has created a portfolio which includes the construction of retail megastores, extensions to existing shops, conversion of derelict buildings and fit out and refurbishment of showrooms.
Chalcroft has just demolished a former store in the centre of Kingâ€™s Lynn as part of a project to
construct a new H&M outlet and four other units at the Vancouver Quarter (pictured centre).
The team is currently carrying out groundworks and diverting all utilities - and as this impacts on a pedestrian thoroughfare in front of retail stores which need to remain trading, the work is being carried out at night.
A temporary roadway through the construction site enables emergency services to access the shopping precinct should it be necessary. When the pedestrian area is re-opened by 5am each morning, the area has been resurfaced and normal service resumes during the day.
Chalcroft prides itself on an ethos of partnership working, and this is evident for this project as Project Manager Tony Coombes liaises with all surrounding retailers by newsletter and in person.
Local students (pictured) studying Level 4 HNC in Construction recently visited the site to experience a live site first hand.
Another major project the company is working on is the Â£2m fit-out of the new Birmingham Wholesale Market. The existing wholesale markets are being moved from Birmingham city centre to new purpose-built premises.
Working on behalf of The Surveyors Company, Chalcroft is the Principal Contractor, fitting out 17 market units, incorporating refrigerated stores, offices, mezzanine floors and welfare. This project is due to be completed in early 2018.
