New build superstore completed in Sunderland

Project Description

RDF Building were extremely proud to be successful in not only securing the construction of a new build retail superstore but also in the on time delivery of the project, all whilst surpassing the client’s expectations on quality and meeting their budget.

The new build superstore was constructed on a large piece of waste land that was formerly a car garage so environmental treatment, alongside constant surveying of the land, had to be undertaken prior to the works starting and throughout the project.

The design & build project was overseen by RDF’s excellent Project Manager’s that liaised with all parties to ensure that all regulations and expectations were met, and as stated by the client…surpassed.

The site underwent a massive amount of groundworks, including attenuation tanks, new entrances and retaining walls, just to enable the setting out of the new building to begin.

Excavations were completed to allow the many tonnes of steel reinforcement to be installed within the footings prior to the concrete being poured.

The steel framed building was designed and erected on the site which then allowed modern insulated metal roofing & cladding panels to wrap it’s frame. Aluminium curtain walling was designed and installed to allow light to flood the new build thus saving energy and costs.

Once watertight the internal works, such as tiling, plastering and the M&E installation, could progress. Heat recovery units and electric car charging points were incorporated into the scheme to make the building as energy efficient as possible.

The site was fully landscaped along with the car park being surfaced, white lined and connected into the existing road so that customers had clear access to the store.
