HSS Hire, the tool and equipment hire company, has launched two new ‘pop-up’ shops at the new £2.5bn Canary Wharf district development site, giving the 470 construction workers on the site instant access to a huge range of tools and equipment.
The multibillion pound complex in the Isle of Dogs, has been designed to provide a new residential led, mixed use and waterside community, scheduled for phased delivery commencing in 2019 and final completion in 2023.
HSS operates a service called HSS Onsite which provides large construction sites with a pop-up shop style branch where workers can access the tools and equipment that they need quickly saving them the time of having to leave the site and find their nearest branch.
HSS Hire has two HSS Onsite trading locations on the project, one on the south east corner of the site and another within the site’s welfare compound, which has been constructed in one of the underground car parks.
The development will provide more than 3,200 new homes, nearly 2 million sq. ft. of high quality commercial office space, and a further 335,000 sq. ft. of shops, restaurants and community uses.
