Retail Park Gillingham

PROJECT ; Retail Park Gillingham


Client: Blackrock

Architect: RGP

Contractor: Weiser Construction

Major overhaul of retail Park and rebuilding new units.
The site interesting as it was constructed on the site of Army training ground for Trench warfare dating back to the 1915, where underground tunnels and caverns had been excavated in the underlying chalk, up to 15m below ground with steel beam / timber post strutting.
Unfortunately, these features were unrecorded and extensive probing was required to ensure pad foundations located were not over these historic caverns.
