Diss Book Shop and Cafe

Client:
Diss Publishing Co. Ltd
Architect:
Kevin Cole Associates
Project Duration:
20 weeks
Value:
£195,000


Winning the contract to construct a new timber framed book shop at Diss was an important part of a growing portfolio of projects.  This contract was made particularly demanding by working over and beside water as well as very tight timescales in order that the shop could open its doors in time for the important Christmas trading period.

To create the wow factor within the shop the client took his Architect’s advice and opted for a timber framed building with exposed internal beams. Pentaco Construction Ltd was involved in several design elements of the project including the piling design which was extremely complex due to the very poor ground conditions.
