John Lewis At Home

Discipline: Civil, Structural
Sector: Commercial, Retail

The John Lewis At Home store in Tamworth is a single storey development with associated at grade car park and service yard. The building shell was formed with longspan steel portal frames clad in a combination of longspan cladding panels and a curtain walling glazing system.

Fairhurst provided civil, structural and geo-environmental engineering services for the project from scheme inception through to construction. The steel frame structure is supported on piled foundations due to challenging ground conditions and high water table. Through continued collaboration with John Lewis on this and other projects, Fairhurst have gained a comprehensive knowledge of the engineering requirements of the John Lewis’ business. This knowledge has facilitated Fairhurst to deliver site specific design solutions which maximise site potential and satisfy the client’s requirements, and to do so both within programme and under budget.
