New Maplin store handed over at Drakehouse Retail Park – 08/11/11

Maplin Drakehouse

Henry Boot Construction’s General Works Division has just handed over new Maplin Electronics store for Hammerson PLC at the Drakehouse Retail Park, Sheffield.

The project involved the construction of steel frame, brick and cladding retail unit to a shell specification, working closely with National Grid due to the proximity of overhead power lines.

HBC worked on the site four years ago, extending the Homebase store for the park’s owner, Hammerson PLC.

Works began on 20thJune with a 20 week contract programme – a fit out period now begins with a view to the store opening for the Christmas trading period.

“It has been a pleasure working with Henry Boot. They have achieved Practical Completion today on time and on budget and most importantly given that they were working underneath high voltage overhead cables, the project has been completed safely.”

Mark Elliott, Elliot Project Management (for Hammerson PLC)
