£15m Buttermarket project complete
"It's impossible to articulate the sheer scale of what the team achieved," says Derrick Cooper, Project Manager of the recently completed Buttermarket in Ipswich. The £15m remodel of an existing shopping centre created nine restaurants; a 24-hour gymnasium; 13-screen cinema; a 13-lane bowling alley and retail units.
To put this mammoth project into perspective, the team spent 65 weeks on site - the equivalent of 21,800 man days. The project involved 835 operatives and 120 different temporary works designs. 3237 tonnes of hardcore / concrete were recycled off-site; 269 tonnes of plasterboard was recycled off-site; 820 tonnes of mixed metal was recycled
off-site and a total of 5260 tonnes of waste was removed.
