Case Study | Smyths
Smyths Toy Store
Contor, employed by one of our key, repeat clients, delivered the internal strip-out, demolition of existing structures and land-lord fit out works to form a new Smyth’s Toy Store at their major, 24 unit retail park which, boasts one of the longest continuous retail park frontages in the UK.
The project included the provision of a new, contractor-designed, steel frame, glazed and ceramic clad entrance façade and new signage box installations. The design and installation of a new insulated roof cladding system, rooflights and all associated gutters and abutment details to achieve a 25 year roofing guarantee completed the shell refurbishment works.
Internally, the unit received a complete refurbishment following demolition and removal of the existing dividing walls. The refurbishment incorporated a blast-track floor treatment and subsequent floor sealing, the installation of insulated cavity walls inclusive of newly introduced structural cladding supports for façade strengthening, the erection of Gypliner fire-rated wall lining systems to all elevations of the unit and the full re-decoration of all existing and new steel work in addition to all walls and ceilings.
Externally, new statutory services were required to be brought into the unit in addition to the full re-design of parking allocation, click-and-collect facilities, pedestrian footpaths, surface and foul water drainage installations to the main car park and haulage road to the rear.
