The construction of the £9m development of the Brockhurst Gate Retail Park in Gosport has managed to avoid closing lanes on the A32 over a few weeks to connect sewerage pipes. Main Contractor Fareham based Amiri Construction has absorbed the extra cost to use a specialist Direct Boring equipment to drill horizontally under the busy road to allow the sewage connection via a 150mm foul drainage pipe.

Site Manager Simon Hunter from Amiri, said that the specialist Boring will ensure that thousands of commuters between Gosport and Fareham do not face additional congestion on the busy route.

“This has saved us taking possession of the road to complete the work.  Progress on the construction of the 7 new retail outlets is going to plan and we expect to completion of the new retail park in November (2018).  A number of national retailers including M&S Food, Lidl, Home Bargains, and The Food Warehouse by Iceland and a McDonalds are waiting to create additional retail jobs for the area,” said Simon Hunter.

Amiri Construction, launched in 2005, .has recently expanded to create an Interiors division and also a specialist Small Works team.  It currently employees 43 people from its the Head Office at Segensworth and demand for their on-time on-budget service has seen the annual turnover exceed £41m.
