RJD Associates (North West) Limited have been appointed as the CDM Principal Designer on a new construction project for QFM Group at Fitzwilliam Road in Rotherham.

fitzwilliam-road2The project involves the construction of a new build shell and associated external works in connection with 3no adjoining two storey units including a separate car parking area to the other side of the site access road. The scope of works also includes providing new incoming mains services and constructing new drainage systems. One of the units will form a KFC drive-thru restaurant and the other units will be occupied by Costa Coffee and Taco Bell. The site is located to the north of Fitzwilliam Road, approximately 3km northeast of Rotherham town centre, and comprises an irregular shaped plot of land with an approximate area of 0.25ha.

There are also several commercial properties adjacent to the site so the overlap between the construction site and the adjacent properties must be carefully managed throughout the project.
