Work has started on a new Costa Coffee drive-thru in at Beacon Business Park in Stafford by construction specialist Stepnell.

Peveril Securities appointed the company’s West Midlands team, based in Kidderminster, to build the 1,800 sq ft unit at the entrance to the business park on Weston Road.

The drive-thru scheme is project managed by Cadman Associates and is set to be handed over in April 2018.

Stepnell regional director John Rawlinson said: “We’re delighted to be working with Peveril Securities to deliver this new drive thru for Costa Coffee which will further extend the facilities available at the Beacon Business Park for both Park employees and commuters.

“Our team has a strong record of delivering commercial and industrial projects on time, to an exacting quality standard and we’re excited to be bringing that expertise to this development.”

Stepnell has previously completed a drive thru for Costa at the Eastgate Business Park, Burton on Trent.

Mark Rothery, managing director of Rothstone Estates, Peveril Securities’ joint venture partner, added: “Stepnell’s highly professional approach and cost management made their appointment a very easy decision to make.”
