Livingston Designer Outlet

Livingston Designer Outlet carried out a full refurbishment and rebrand with a £7million investment from its owners. The multi-million pound investment in the centre, managed by retail asset management specialists Realm Ltd, transformed the shopping destination to create a new guest experience, coming on the back of the Outlet’s growing popularity and a rising number of big brand names choosing to open stores in the designer outlet.


Clark Contracts were appointed to carry out the works which where carried out on a nightshift basis to minimize disruption to the shopping centre, which features over 80 boutiques, restaurants and cafes as well as an 8-screen digital Vue Cinema. 


CDS were appointed for 2 packages including the specialist cutting and Groundworks using the latest Remote Demolition and excavation plant and Electric Sawcutting methods to eliminate the risk of fumes internally and duct with our extraction systems and water suppressed cutting. CDS not only removed the concrete for new services routes and pad foundations for the bespoke new staircase but also carried out the installation of the new concrete and reinforcement giving the client a one stop shop for both packages.  

“May I take this opportunity to thank you all for your efforts during the Christmas and New Year shifts.  The works were not easy by any stretch of the imagination, compounded by adverse weather conditions , working away from home and site conditions that were not ideal.  We completed the works as far as we could and handed back both possessions on time without any accidents or incidents which we should be proud of.  We had a couple of high level visits from the client who were content with our efforts and achievements.”
