AN off-site construction company has won the contract to design, manufacture and build the new generation of McDonalds drive-through restaurants.
The fast-food facility in Bognor Regis, West Sussex will be the first two-storey restaurant of its type in the UK.
McDonalds UK worked with Elliott Off-Site to evolve its design concept into volumetric units. The restaurant at Bognor Regis is a development of the single-storey restaurants seen around the UK, with the two-storey facility seating up to 130 people along with the drive-through.
Elliott had demonstrated its capacity to meet the demanding programme requirements by supplying a number of single-storey restaurants for McDonald’s expansion programme.
Elliott will construct the buildings using steel-framed modules with concrete floors and a range of architectural features. The off-site construction will enable the buildings to be manufactured to an extremely high specification and detail to achieve the tight programme of just five weeks on-site.
Modules will be delivered to site in fully fitted-out format including all fixed furniture and signage. The modules will be lifted into place and the external facade and associated external enabling works will then be completed.
Paul Lang, managing director of Elliott Off-Site, said: “Our specialist team worked very closely with McDonalds to develop a bespoke off-site solution for this exciting new store format.”
