R G Carter has completed their largest on-site replacement to date.
Waitrose has been a familiar feature of Sevenoaks High Street for nearly 30 years; our team has been working in the town since last summer to demolish the old building and construct a brand new branch, making the most of the limited space.
There were many challenges with this project, not least being the layout of the site. The High Street building stands between two adjacent buildings and the back of the site is bounded on all sides by neighbours with shared access to the properties from the rear.
Tony Jacob, head of construction, environment and engineering at Waitrose, said: ‘I was really impressed with how well this project has gone; a very complex town centre re-build delivered in great style – well done to all involved.’
The new branch is now open featuring a split level with a café on the first floor, convenience foods on the ground floor, and a subterranean car park.
The £10m project was completed in just 15 months.
