Extension Works Shurgard City Airport

Appian Construction are currently building a 5,000m2 extension for Shurgard’s City Airport store. As with all builds, this project hasn’t come without its challenges, we are
building adjacent to London City Airport and are building within 7m of the DLR. There was also the difficulty of moving a Cadent 450mm gas main and a Thames Water 600mm main, all prior to starting Construction.

The scope of works for this build includes:

Demolition of existing structures

Structural steel frame

Composite cladding and roof

Externally illuminated signage

Curtain walling and feature glazing

Installation of a lift

Unit partitioning

Electrical & Mechanical installation

Office fit out

Hard and soft landscaping

Testing & Commissioning

Sub-structure works including; reduced level dig, breaking out of concrete piles and obstructions, CHD piling solution, attenuated drainage and RC piling caps and slabs

All whilst ensuring the current building remains fully operational and that the construction processes do not impact on the day to day running of the store.
