We were appointed by main contractor, Interior fit out experts Esprit UK Ltd as building contractor to carry out the external redevelopment of the Notcutts Garden Centre at Marlow , Buckinghamshire. The scope of works involved reclaiming an area of some 1200m2 of long since redundant area of the centre which had become used for storage. The scope of the works was to adjust the levels so to make the area accessible to all customers. This involved the construction of a retaining wall with concrete road way accessible for fork trucks.
The client was very keen to avoid the use of traditional building materials for the retaining wall construction which led the design team to use of Oak Railway sleepers so to keep the look of the works within keeping with the surrounding area, as with all Notcutts schemes these works were carried within a fully functioning garden centre with minimum disruption.
