“The incoming tenant made various amendments to their requirements throughout the duration of the contract which did have an impact upon the anticipated completion date, but these amendments were taken in their stride by Quantum and they adapted the programme accordingly which resulted in the project being completed on time.
In summary, I was very pleased at the attitude of Quantum and the ethos of working as a team to achieve completion of the contract within budget and on time. I would have no hesitation in recommending the services of Quantum and are working with them on another potential project.”

Pods, Kingsway Retail Park
This was an infill development of three pods adjacent to the entrance of a very busy existing retail park.
The development area was created by remodelling the service yard of a neighbouring unit building to maximise the retail footprint on the site.
The contract entailed constructing the infrastructure, shell, services and the like including installation of the fully glazed shop frontage.
Particular constraints were placed on the construction works due to the volume of vehicular and pedestrian traffic in addition to maintain free access to the neighbouring tenant with the reduced service area.
Due to the whole site being built over a disused tip, with high level of contaminants and methane production, the construction form needed to be the least invasive and below ground drainage kept to a minimum.
The resultant design included a steel frame structure set on a concrete raft foundation built over the low ground bearing properties of the contaminated ground.
A combination of facing brickwork with carefully detailed metal cladding combined to lift the quality of the finished product
