Unicorn Construction were appointed to manage and deliver structural and refurbishment works on behalf of Interserve Group. The works were generally within highly populated town and city centres across Devon and south Somerset. The works varied but generally consisted of replacement roof coverings , tanking, carpentry, plastering, decoration, formwork for concrete placement and masonry works. All works had to be planned carefully. Internal works needed to be undertaken outside of normal working hours. Good customer liason between our own management staff and the client was essential throughout with a cautious approach to the Health & Safety of our staff and others who could be affected by our works.
Unicorn Construction were appointed by Midas Group, to undertake the refurbishment of the staircores within the new john lewis store. Our initial works comprised of formwork and concreting to new staircases, Brick & blockworks, plastering, carpentry, tiling, balustrading refurbishment works and decoration. Whilst delivering the staircore works, we were also instructed to facilitate utility connections, including hard landscaping excavations and reinstatements, tanking works for the basement structure and construction of the restaurant roof terrace. We returned in 2014, in order to install a tanking solution to their basement, which had previously allowed surface water to run into their electrical department in the basement during heavy rainfalls. Our works included the installation of new tiled pavement hardstandings for the adoption and approval of devon county highways, whilst also providing our client with an insurance backed guarantee for the performance of our works and installations.
Unicorn Construction were appointed by Interserve Ltd, initially to manage & complete the builders works required to allow the retro fit of a Bakery within the Plymouth Union street Lidls store. This led to us being appointed to undertake the Kingsteignton Lidls store project. Whilst still completing works to this store we were also instructed to complete the builders works to 12 further Lidls stores, to ensure that they could be handed over to lidls on time and to the specification.
This project consisted of the expansion of the campsite facilities building. The building was almost tripled in size, with the original building converted into a shop and office reception room with a separately accessed kitchen wash-up room.
The extension created male and female toilet and shower rooms, a family bathroom and disabled toilet/shower room.
