J Tomlinson and BSP Consulting start work on new Dunelm store for Nottingham

Work has just got underway on site on a new Dunelm home furnishings store being built in Nottingham by local contractor J Tomlinson.

Nottingham-based BSP Consulting is providing the full civil and structural engineering services for the development on Queen’s Drive which is being built with Benchmark Property for Davidsons Developments.

The £2.5 million scheme is part of a phased development at the site. Architects for the 23,000 sq ft unit are Stephen George & Partners, from Leicester.

Construction managing director at J Tomlinson, Martin Gallagher, said: “This is a prominent site, and J Tomlinson is very pleased to be building a new retail store for Dunelm, the UK’s leading home furnishing retailer which is currently expanding with a number of new outlets.”

The store is scheduled to be completed by the end of March 2016.

BSP was previously associated with specialist homewares retailer Dunelm when the company provided engineering services for the Dunelm Group’s award-winning headquarters at Watermead Business Park, Syston, near Leicester.

J Tomlinson, which offers services in construction, refurbishment, repairs and maintenance, mechanical and electrical engineering, energy efficiency, renewables, and facilities management, is based in Lilac Grove, Beeston, and has offices across the East and West Midlands.

BSP Consulting, which is based at Oxford Street, Nottingham, and also has offices at Pride Park, Derby, De Montfort Street, Leicester, and Solly Street, Sheffield, provides civil, structural, traffic, transportation, geotechnical and environmental engineering services across the construction industry in all sectors.
