RETAIL

Retail Store, Aldi

Craddys have worked across all areas of the retail sector, including multi million pound retail park developments for high street brands, and supermarket stores for an internationally renowned discount retailer.

We have familiarity in working on retail projects throughout the entire duration of the development. We like to get involved with projects at an early stage, this allows us to assess risk and develop accurate early scheme designs, thus helping the wider project team develop an accurate and realistic cost plan.

Supermarket Store, Plymouth

Client: Aldi

Value: £1m -£5m

This site was previously a listed former prison. The project included the development of a store unit in the grounds of the prison, whilst the prison building itself was renovated as student accommodation. The site was surrounded by 6m high walls which were also listed. The scheme required repairs and strengthening to the prison walls and the full refurbishment of the derelict prison building. The project was nominated for a RTPI award for Excellence in Planning for Heritage.

Faringdon Retail Park, Oxfordshire

Client: GCS Faringdon Estates

Value: £5m – £10m

This new retail park provided 30,000ft2 of retail units for tenants Waitrose, Aldi and Costa. The site was previously a green field site and as such, required a considerable amount of engineering input at pre-planning stage. Using advanced computer software and flood risk analysis experience Craddys were able to justify development in what was previous indicated to be functional flood plain. This work also unlocked additional parts of the site for further development.

Supermarket Store, Bristol

Client: Aldi

Value: < £1m

The extension and refurbishment to an existing store. This was particularly challenging due to the new side extension being constructed in a very tight area where access needed to be maintained to the car park. The project included a time critical store shutdown in order to complete the refurbishment, the entire design philosophy revolved around phased working to ensure the store was closed for the least amount of time.

Drive-Through Unit, Gloucester Retail Park

Client: Starbucks

Value: < £1m

A new build drive-thru coffee unit located within an existing retail park in Gloucester. Craddys provided the civil and structural design of the steel frame on shallow foundations with a ground bearing slab.
