Our Costa Coffee Drive-Thru project at the Slough Retail Park in Berkshire is now complete and has opened its doors to coffee lovers!
We provided full structural and civil engineering services for the new 1,800 sq. ft drive-thru premises which is located on the corner of Bath Road.
The building is constructed as a lightweight, single-storey, steel framed structure. Construction is metal framing to the walls, insulated steel profiled roof, steel framed portal and braced construction for the primary steelwork, mass concrete foundations and a ground bearing concrete floor slab. We recommended early stage ground investigation works, the results of which enabled us to provide a foundation scheme which avoided the need for piling.
The drainage design utilises a SUDs system for surface water to provide increased capacity to the existing system. The foul drainage is connected directly into the adopted sewer, via a Section 106 Agreement obtained by Gyoury Self.
The project team included Faircloth Construction, who acted as both main contractor and steel fabricator for the project, and Urban Edge Architecture, the architect and landscape designer.
The new Costa Coffee drive-thru forms part of a series of new improvements to the 150,000 sq. ft. retail park, which was acquired last May by specialist commercial property investment manager Orchard Street Investment Management on behalf of St. James’s Place UK.
