ACP were initially approached by Longcross Construction Ltd in December 2011 and subsequently by S P Fallon Civil Engineering Ltd to design and supply precast concrete retaining walls and ground beams. ACP's contract was to design, supply & install a retaining wall to the site boundary as part of the enabling works for the site. Although it is the first time ACP & Fallon's have worked together both have previously worked on many new supermarket developments. ACP made use of their new 280mm thick prestressed concrete panels to form retaining walls up to 4.1m in height. ACP fully installed 92 vertical cantilever panels or 111m of retaining walls in only 8 days.
The new Sainsbury's store will create up to 250 new and part time jobs for the area and will be only Whitby's second supermarket.
