A new generation 140 seater restaurant and drive-thru has been successfully delivered onto Westpark 26 business park at Chelston, Wellington. Developed by Summerfield, the new McDonalds building has been pre-fabricated off site and delivered in six sections, which were then craned into position.
Working with Devon Contractors, McDonalds and Elliott, (who made the pre-fabricated building), Summerfield have completed Phase One of the construction of the new building for McDonald’s. Following the arrival of the modular building, Phase 2 works will commence with a target date to practically complete the building before the end of December 2020.
This is one of the first New Generation McDonalds restaurants and drive-thru’s in the country and will generate 65 new full time and part time jobs (45 full time equivalent positions). McDonalds are currently recruiting and training staff to be able to open soon after the building is completed.
“We are excited to be part of this development and look forward to the new jobs our restaurant will create, and the investment it will bring to the local area”, commented a McDonald’s spokesperson.
McDonald’s will join the Costa Coffee drive thru and restaurant, The Skylark Pub, along with a Subway and a Budgens convenience store as part of the BP petrol filling station.
“As Westpark expands, it has drawn in more great names to compliment the many great businesses on site.”, commented Ben Trickey, Summerfield’s Commercial Director. “Westpark now has its own momentum and continues to offer a terrific range of amenities to the locality along with employment building options for both new and established businesses.”
Summerfield are working up plans for a new build terrace of Trade Counter and industrial warehouse units to be located adjacent to the McDonalds – and terms have been agreed with the first two occupiers. All enquiries to Summerfield’s agents Alder King or JLL – or direct to Summerfield.
