The development of the 9,900m² waste ground in Shirebrook has been completely transformed to create the new Lidl store. The store boasts a 1,106m² sales area and facilities such as an in-store bakery, longer-style tills with dual packing, customer toilets, baby changing and parking for both cars and bicycles.
The build which commenced in Feb 2018 took just 7 months to complete and is now ready for its grand opening on the 1st November. On the build for the project, Joe Allmond (Contracts Manager) said:
Despite the heavy snowfall early on in the project we managed to stay on schedule, we had a great team working on the project from the site manager to the sub-contractors, and everyone delivered.
If you would like to become one of our sub-contractors please consider joining our Safe Partner Scheme.
The 23,700sq ft store due to be built in Dalton, Rotherham was secured by the Facilities, Maintenance and Building Department (FMB) this week and the 3rd project the Group have secured to build new stores for the global supermarket ‘Lidl’. The £3m project will commence on the 1st October and the new store is due to open in June 2019. The store will create 40 new jobs for the area and will be the second store the supermarket have in Rotherham.
On securing the project Commercial Manager James Flintham commented:
The tendering process to secure this build has been particularly rigorous, however I feel our track record of previous builds for the brand was in our favour and we are delighted to have secured this £3m contract.
We are always keen to use the local supply chain on our project and this is no exception, in particular we are keen to make contact with local suppliers and subcontractors for fencing, paving, landscaping and decorating.
The Group are currently completing the building of another store for the supermarket in Shirebrook, Mansfield which will be complete next week.
