The Brief

Our client was appointed to convert the ‘Long Shop’, built in 1874 as part of the Grade II listed Great Western Railway Works, into new retail space.

Extending the site into the Long Shop brings the total retail space to 250,000 sq ft. The works involves the refurbishment, repair and maintenance to incorporate new retail units, and the archways facing westwards will be opened up to provide shop fronts.

With a very difficult contract with restricted access/out of hour works/minimal storage space the AWS team worked extremely closely with our site team removing waste from site and it was very much hassle free via both phone and online!
