Permacrib at the former Norton College site, Sheffield

A new multi-million pound retail development is currently under construction at the former Norton College site in Sheffield. Several high profile national chains, including Aldi will occupy the site.

The development, led by St James Securities, is expected to create 250 full-time equivalent new and sustainable jobs, together with 124 jobs during construction.

Phi Group were contracted by GMI Construction to design, supply and install two of our BBA Certified Permacrib timber crib retaining walls. Our package of works included the foundation excavation together with the supply and placement of all infill and backfill material. This full turn key approach provided GMI Construction with a complete package therefore minimising risk and co-ordination issues on site.

In all we installed 200 square metres of Permacrib walling over two retaining walls, with a maximum retained height of 3.0m.

All works were completed on time and on budget. Give Tom a call at our Harewood office to discuss this project in more detail, or to see how we can add value to your next project.
