Since our last newsletter we have been involved in 3 community activities involving the local community and in particular Chorley New Road Primary School The 'name the roller' competition was launched with the help of the retail park mascot Max and featured in an educational article in the Bolton Evening News. Last Monday we did a school assembly based on construction site safety this was delivered alongside a sterling acting performance from Ivor Good site the considerate constructors scheme mascot! We are 100% committed to delivering safe working environments both on and around our site, as per our previous newsletters should you have any concerns or feel we could improve in any way please contact: Jonathan Parker on 07764502748 or Steve Barnett on 07764662376


Progress and upcoming activities

The main step forward since our last newsletter is the completion of the structural steel frame. Despite the mixed weather this activity went well and we are now preparing for the next phase of works which are the roof, wall cladding and glazing. This is an exciting part of the project as all of the high quality products and finishes specified by Next and Orbit  Developments start to become visible! Externally the south west corner of the car park is advancing nicely with base course tarmac due for installation in the next couple of weeks. We remain on programme for completion of the  shell stage of the works in November 2017.
