RJD Associates (North West) Limited have been appointed as the CDM Principal Designer on a new project for QFM Group at Gateway 36 in Barnsley. The project involves the fit-out of a new build shell unit to form a KFC drive-thru restaurant, and the scope of works includes applying new floor, wall and ceiling finishes, installing cold rooms, fabricated kitchen equipment, extraction, air conditioning and M&E services.
The site of the works is a plot located within Phase 1 of the Gateway 36 mixed use development park. There are several completed units within the Gateway 36 site that are currently to let, and construction works to an adjacent public house development are currently ongoing. There is a newly-constructed housing estate within the vicinity of the KFC site so a key health and safety issue on this project is managing the overlap between the KFC site and the adjacent properties and adjoining construction site, including traffic management requirements.
