BWB Consulting were appointed by Land Securities as structural, civil, geotechnical and traffic engineers for the construction of a new Primark store in Sunderland City Centre, within the Bridges Shopping Centre.

The development required the controlled demolition of several existing RC framed and masonry built structures along High Street West. This required careful consideration of the remaining structures which included adjacent basements.

The superstructure consisted of a 3 storey, braced, steel framed building with insitu concrete floor plates. Clad with local sourced stone and extensive glazing. Significant level differences from the front to the back of the building, stability of remaining post demolition buildings along with adjacent basements were particular challenges for this project.
