PROJECT ; Retail Park Gillingham
PROJECT NUMBER: HSF53
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.
