Project Description

Construction of a new 86,000sq.ft superstore with 350 car parking spaces. To facilitate the town centre redevelopment an existing Youth Centre and Health Centre will also be relocated along with a number of smaller retail units.

Solution

The final design provides a large stilted superstore at second floor with 450 car parking spaces arranged over two floors below. The main elevation faces north and the existing shopping centre consisting of large areas of glazing, facing brickwork and ashlar stone panels to create a light and modern facade. The use of glass creates an exciting active frontage facing the existing town centre generating interest and allowing customers to orientate themselves.

Status

Planning permission has been granted and it is hoped that construction will start shortly.
