Project Strip-out
Client Ashford Designer Outlet
Completion Date November 2023

PROJECT OVERVIEW

During October 2023 we undertook the strip out of not just one retail unit at Ashford Designer Outlet but two! Our experience of working at this substantial retail park here in Kent and our in-depth knowledge of the site gave us the opportunity to work with our client yet again.

Luckily both units requiring a complete strip out were situated within the same side of the outlet centre allowing us to combine our worksite within a few meters of each unit within the service bay area.

As with all projects of this type, the most important factor before commencing any strip out works was to isolate the incoming services to provide a safe working environment for our teams, but allowing some power for lighting and tools. Our inhouse electricians and plumbers were the first on site to carry out these works whilst our project manager enabled the site office and base of operations.

Working within a busy retail park such as Ashford Designer Outlet always has its challenges no matter how many months work and projects you have completed, movement of vehicles for removal of waste and delivery of materials, ensuring the safety of the public and staff working within the outlet centre, fire drills all go to show how well prepared we are when working within such environments here at AW Construction.

These, for us, were a simple strip out project, stripping the units back to a bare shell ready for the new tenant and their fit-out contractor to complete the shell fitout.

From simple strip outs like this to full fitouts and reconfigurations of retail units, installation of security gating, ground and small civils works, providing our highly knowledgeable directly employed trades people to these projects goes a long way in establishing our reputation for a one stop turn key solution for our clients.

During the course of this project we were able to divert a number of items away from landfill and back into the local economy, flooring, chiller units, counter parts, lights and other sundry items.

The aerial image of the outlet centre shows the scale of the site and we can safely say, hand on heart, that we’ve worked on at least 25% of those units, from a few hundred square feet to thousands.

  • I would like to take the opportunity to thank you and the team at AW for the commitment, support, and partnership that we at Ashford Designer Outlet have had with you since 2019. I truly have appreciated the commitment that the teams have shown to the multiple projects that we have undertaken over the years. Importantly I wanted to acknowledge the accomplishments and quality of work that has taken place in the Centre and on our charity project to build a library for the local school in Ashford. In 2021 our team at Ashford Designer Outlet partnered with AW Construction to help build a new library at the local school, The John Wallis Academy. The new library holds over 10,000 books for the 400 students at the Academy’s lower school to explore and enjoy. Overall, fantastic show of a joint collaborative approach. Projects have always been carried out efficiently and timely, from retail store works to Centre enhancements. The AW team have managed each task extremely well and to the budgets agreed previously with no question to return for last minute improvements. Challenges would be dealt with professionally by offering solutions, and detail transparency in associated costs. I continue to look forward to developing our relationship and working together in the future.
