After completing a new petrol station and Spar store on the Fairfield’s Industrial Estate in Louth we were invited by Spar to negotiate the construction of new Spar store and filling station on the site of the old Little Chef at Laceby. The Laceby site is located on the junction of the A46 and A18 and should be as popular as the Louth project when it’s completed in June next year.

Work started on site in early October clearing the vegetation and reducing levels for the key part of any filling station, the installation of the new fuel storage tanks. The two 70,000 litre tanks have now been installed and work will now move on to constructing the roads and forecourt for the filling station. During this excavation work an archaeological watching brief will be maintained to ensure the history of the site is not lost or damaged.

We had carried out some work on this site to put in the foundations in for the new Spar store and this has allowed us separate the project in to essentially two elements, the construction of the forecourt, pumps and canopy and then the construction of the Spar store.

In the months prior to starting on site we have worked with the clients managing agents, ADM Surveyors, and our main subcontractor, Petrocom, to carry out value engineering on the project to keep costs to a minimum and minimise the construction time on site. When the sales building is complete Spar will employ their own shop fitting team to fit out the building for the new food and drink concessions as well as the usual Spar range of convenience products.
