CONCRETE mixers were called in to make dozens of deliveries for the latest phase of a Huddersfield town centre development.
Some 36 deliveries, totalling 300 cubic metres, were made to the site of a £1m five-storey department store in Westgate.
The day-long concrete pour by Readymix (Huddersfield) saw mixers queuing along the street.
The concrete was pumped by Readymix sister company Mobile Concrete Pump Hire.
Both companies belong to the family-owned Myers Group, which also includes Naylor Myers Building Supplies, Johnsons Wellfield Quarries, Boards Timber Merchants and Honley Skip Hire.
More concrete is expected to be delivered to the site soon.
The site used to be occupied by Destiny Designerwear, owned by Lindley-based property developer Ghulam Rasool, who occupied the store for about 20 years.
He is spending more than £1m on the department store scheme and hopes to open for business in July next year.
Builders moved on to the site in February following demolition of the Destiny outlet.
The new store, which has yet to be named, will have four floors of designer brands and exclusive clothing for men and women.
There will also be space for concessions, a cafe and the possibility of a restaurant.
Destiny Designerwear has moved to a temporary shop on Westgate while work on the new store takes place.
