Ground for new retail superstore stabilised

Extensive ground stabilisation works of the site near the river Humber have been completed, which has allowed the construction of the new 1,500 m sq retail unit to continue.

Once the site was cleared and the levels established the excavation and stabilisation works could be undertaken.

Concrete piles and an attenuation system have been designed & installed to meet with the demands of the site.

The project is well underway and further progress photos will follow.

The Tap on Tower Street is the brilliant new offering that has come from the dated Tap & Spile.

The funky interior design is complimented by the many different craft & real ales to try onsite or if you feel the need take away via the bottle bar and/or takeaway service that the site offers.

A plethora of Gins, Rums, Tequilas and Mescals are on offer for anybody wanting to try something new, different or hard to find. There is a large selection of board games located on bespoke shelving throughout the property to keep the customers amused and interested.

A full internal refurbishment including electrical alterations, new flooring, bespoke shelving, furniture and signage were all completed within budget. The external areas have new seating and smoking areas so that the building can still be enjoyed no matter what the weather.
