Project Overview

Scheme Overview: The Giant Storage Group is excited to announce the construction of a new Starbucks Drive-Thru restaurant at our location on Newport Road in Cardiff. This project, carried out by Total Group, involves the development of a one-storey steel frame building with a small seated restaurant and external car parking. To ensure minimal disruption to our customers, every effort has been made to segregate the construction site from the adjacent unit, which is a large storage facility accessed by the general public throughout the working day.

We understand the importance of maintaining a smooth flow of traffic and have taken all necessary measures to ensure a seamless experience for both our storage customers and Starbucks patrons. The new Starbucks Drive-Thru restaurant will be a welcome addition to our facility, offering a convenient and enjoyable dining experience for our customers. The building will feature various external finishes, including a face brick plinth and through-color render, adding a touch of aesthetic appeal to the overall design. In terms of roofing, a single ply membrane will be used for the flat roof area, providing excellent durability and weather resistance.

The roof will be complemented by aluminum fascias and soffits, adding a sleek and modern touch to the building’s exterior. It’s important to note that the construction of the Starbucks Drive-Thru restaurant is being completed as a shell, allowing for future customization and interior design to align with Starbucks’ branding and ambiance. This ensures that the restaurant will seamlessly integrate with the existing storage facility, creating a cohesive and visually appealing space.

The Giant Storage Group is committed to providing top-notch amenities and services to our customers, and the addition of a Starbucks Drive-Thru restaurant is a testament to that commitment. We understand the value of convenience and quality, and we believe that this new dining option will enhance the overall experience for our customers. As the construction progresses, we will continue to prioritise the safety and comfort of our customers. We will closely monitor the project to ensure that any potential disruptions are minimised, and we will communicate any necessary updates or changes in a timely manner.

We are excited about the completion of this project and look forward to welcoming our customers to the new Starbucks Drive-Thru restaurant at The Giant Storage Group. Whether you’re stopping by for a quick coffee or enjoying a leisurely meal, we are confident that this new addition will exceed your expectations. Stay tuned for more updates as we near the grand opening of our new Starbucks location.

Project challenges and resolutions

The Giant Storage Group is thrilled to share the news of our upcoming project – the construction of a new Starbucks Drive-Thru restaurant at our Newport Road location in Cardiff. We have partnered with Total Group to develop a one-storey steel frame building with a small seated restaurant and external car parking. As with any construction project, there are challenges that may arise during the construction phase. In this article, we will discuss some of these challenges and the resolutions that have been put in place to ensure the successful completion of the Starbucks Drive-Thru restaurant.

1. Site Preparation and Logistics

One of the initial challenges faced during the construction phase is site preparation and logistics. The construction site needs to be properly cleared and prepared before any construction work can begin. This involves tasks such as clearing vegetation, leveling the ground, and ensuring proper access for construction vehicles.

To address this challenge, Total Group has conducted a thorough site survey and developed a comprehensive site preparation plan. This plan includes a detailed timeline for each task, ensuring that the site is properly prepared before construction commences. Additionally, Total Group has coordinated with local authorities to ensure smooth logistics, including traffic management and access to the site.

2. Construction Materials and Supplies

Another challenge in the construction phase is ensuring the availability of construction materials and supplies. Timely delivery of materials is crucial to avoid delays in the construction process.

Total Group has established strong relationships with reliable suppliers to ensure a steady and timely supply of construction materials. They have also implemented a robust inventory management system to track and monitor the availability of materials. This proactive approach helps to minimize any potential delays caused by material shortages.

3. Adhering to Building Codes and Regulations

Compliance with building codes and regulations is a critical aspect of any construction project. Failure to meet these requirements can lead to costly delays and legal complications.

Total Group has a dedicated team of experts who are well-versed in local building codes and regulations. They work closely with relevant authorities to ensure that all construction activities adhere to the necessary standards. Regular inspections and quality checks are conducted to verify compliance, mitigating any potential risks associated with non-compliance.

4. Weather Conditions

Weather conditions can significantly impact the construction timeline and progress. Unfavorable weather, such as heavy rain or strong winds, can hinder construction activities and cause delays.

Total Group closely monitors weather forecasts and plans construction activities accordingly. They have contingency plans in place to address potential weather-related disruptions. This proactive approach helps to minimize the impact of adverse weather conditions on the construction schedule.

5. Project Management and Communication

Effective project management and communication are essential for the successful completion of any construction project. Clear communication channels and efficient coordination between all stakeholders are crucial.

Total Group employs experienced project managers who oversee the construction process and ensure effective communication between all parties involved. Regular progress meetings and updates are conducted to keep everyone informed about the project’s status. This transparent approach fosters collaboration and helps to address any issues or concerns in a timely manner.


The construction phase of the Starbucks Drive-Thru restaurant project at our Newport Road location in Cardiff comes with its fair share of challenges. However, with the expertise and proactive measures implemented by Total Group, we are confident in overcoming these challenges and delivering a successful project. We look forward to welcoming customers to our new Starbucks Drive-Thru restaurant, providing them with an exceptional dining experience.
