Welcome to the latest edition of Premier Construction magazine.
This month we get the lowdown on a new two-storey warehouse for Wickes; we check out the latest Hard Rock Cafe to open in Scotland; and we take a look at some of the recent work being conducted by Scottish Water
Wickes Folkestone is a new warehouse on Park Farm Road which has been constructed for the Travis Perkins Group on a site owned by Davies Street Properties Ltd. The project included the erection of a new warehouse, plus a significant amount of soft and hard landscaping. The project reached completion in February 2014, with Boss Design & Build as the main contractor and MGM Chartered Architects Ltd providing all architectural services.
Housed at 179 Buchanan Street, Hard Rock Cafe Glasgow blends the city’s historic feel with the energy and vibe of the Hard Rock brand. The new cafe employs more than 80 people from the local area and with more than 9,000 square feet of space, and a collection of memorabilia from the likes of Sir Elton John and Rod Stewart, Hard Rock Cafe Glasgow is the perfect dining destination when hitting the city.The 170-cover venue opened in November 2013 and joins the very popular Hard Rock Cafe Edinburgh to become Scotland’s second Hard Rock location.
President and CEO of Hard Rock International, Hamish Dodds, said:
“As a proud native of Scotland, I couldn’t be more pleased that our world-famous Hard Rock brand is calling Glasgow home. Glasgow is a truly amazing city with a long history, vibrant culture, rich heritage and of course, wonderful people. Hard Rock is a perfect addition to this beautiful city.”
And finally, Scottish Water is a publicly owned company, providing Scotland with an average of 1.3 billion litres of drinking water and removing up to 840 million litres of waste water on a daily basis. In order to continue providing its customers with the best possible service, Scottish Water regularly implements schemes which upgrade and improve facilities.
With all this and more, join us as we delve into the impressive projects that continue to shape our landscape.
