Bath Benefits From Octagon Retail Development

Client : L&R Group Limited
Architect : DLG
Contractor : E R Hemmings

Outstanding retail space adds sparkle to Bath.

Long Engineering have recently completed a major installation of structural & architectural steelwork plus wood and glazing finishes within the Octagon, Milson Street.

This technically challenging project included the re-modelling of various existing retail units including The Moon & Sixpence, extensive modifications to an old cinema and wine cellars plus new retail units for such names as Jamie Oliver and Hobbs.

Bespoke items included the supply and installation of external walkways and feature oriel windows to Jamie’s Restaurant.

Long Engineering’s Project Manager, John Summerhayes said “the company faced many challenges during the project, particularly from old structures erected over the past 200 years. We we never quite sure what we would unearth from day to day!”
