Costa Coffee Drive-thru, Slough

Costa Coffee steelframe

Construction has started on our new build Costa Coffee Drive-Thru project at the Slough Retail Park in Berkshire.

We are providing 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 will be constructed as a lightweight, single storey, steel framed structure. Construction will be of 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 will utilise a SUDs system for surface water to provide increase capacity to the existing system. The foul drainage is to be connected directly into the adopted sewer, via a Section 106 Agreement, which Gyoury Self has obtained.

We are delighted to be working once again with Faircloth Construction, who is acting as both main contractor and steel fabricator for the project. The main architect and landscape designer is Urban Edge Architecture.

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 in May by specialist commercial property investment manager Orchard Street Investment Management on behalf of St. James’s Place UK. Work is due for completion before the end of the year.
