MSM were awarded this contract at Riverside Retail Park, Coleraine to construct a standalone 5,700ft2 single-storey building consisting of two pod units for Frankie & Benny’s and Costa Coffee. Both units were constructed to a shell finish for internal fit-out by each tenant and comprised:
• Frankie & Benny’s restaurant (internal floor area 4,100ft2) with a seated dining area, licensed bar, catering kitchen, WCs (male, female & disabled), office, staff accommodation and stores.
• Costa Coffee shop (internal floor area 1,600ft2) with servery counter, seated area, WCs and a store.
Before commencing construction works, we co-ordinated with our demolition subcontractor to carry out the demolition of the existing Laser Electrical retail unit. The building is constructed with reinforced concrete foundations and in-situ ground floor, structural steel frame and a Trocal roof covering on a metaldeck. The building façade is predominantly ppc aluminium curtain walling with Iroko timber cladding and Iroko entrance doors. An aluminium brise soleil provides solar shading to the Costa Coffee unit and extends over a paved outdoor seating area. Incoming electrical, gas and water services were installed during the shell construction works in advance of the tenant fit-out.
