John Lewis Peterborough

Procured via a design and build partnering arrangement, we are currently on site delivering phase 2 of the John Lewis Peterborough store development.

The works involve the fit out of the previous shell and core works completed, as well as a refresh of the existing store.

As part of the project we are also delivering refurbishments to the mall entrance of the overall shopping centre, and decorations to the escalator bodies.

At tender stage, we identified a primary risk was access to the escalator bodies for this aspect of works. We worked closely with our scaffolding contractor and the structural engineer to design a bespoke scaffolding system which wraps around the existing escalators so they can still be used by members of the public whilst our works progress.

When complete, the store will feature an experience desk offering services such as personal styling, home design and nursery advice. Meanwhile, the new beauty hall will introduce new brands and ranges, and will offer a variety of consultations. The womenswear department will offer customers one-to-one or group personal styling appointments in its Style Studio.
