Kershaw, contractor

Waitrose has re-launched its Bath store following a major refurbishment and extension project that included £1.1 million-worth of mechanical-services work by Kershaw Mechanical Services. The store stayed open throughout the project, which saw its floor area increase from 1500 to 3700 m2 by expanding into adjacent space previously occupied by mixed-use retail units of The Podium whose leases had come to an end.

Kershaw installed a new plant room and boiler house. Air-handing units were installed on the second floor. Ductwork was made in the company’s workshops at Cambridge.

The company also installed two new chillers on the roof with 108 mm carbon-steel pressed pipework to feed chilled water to refrigeration cabinets in the store

Alistair Brown, construction project manager with Waitrose, said, ‘We have worked with Kershaw Mechanical Services for over 20 years, so they have an great understanding of our requirements and have helped transform our Bath store into a fantastic Waitrose Food & Home with minimum disruption to customers, staff and neighbours.’
