Barr Construction has won two contracts with Tesco, which will see it construct a new store in Middlesex and construct a new replacement store at Musselburgh, East Lothian.
The contractor has been awarded a multi-million pound design and build contract to construct a new store in Yiewsley, Middlesex and will begin work on-site in March this year.
The project, due for completion in mid 2011, will feature a new 50,000 sq ft Tesco as well as two blocks of 12 residential apartments.
To maximise space on site the new store will feature a mezzanine floor, elevated on stilts to allow for underground car parking.
Meanwhile Barr has also secured a multi- million pound contract to construct a new 60,000 sq ft replacement Tesco store in Musselburgh.
It will start on-site in February 2010 and is due to complete in mid October 2010.
Supermarket environmental strategies will be under debate at RAC’s Retail Question Time on 25 February. SeeHEREfor details.
