SLS Design Consultants were appointed by Central England Co-operative to provide civils and structural engineering services for a new supermarket.
The site was previously occupied by a print works building and site investigations were procured by SLS to obtain details of any contamination and site ground conditions. The levels of contamination revealed were localised to a single area and the contaminated material was removed from site to a licensed tip. The new supermarket was constructed with steel frames supported on traditional footings clad with masonry elevations. Drainage was gravity fed and linked into the existing drains that exited the site into the main sewers.
