Lidl opens its doors in Swansea
As more people are turning to the budget store for their groceries, the German-owned supermarket has plans to open 44 new stores within Wales, and we helped in Swansea!
We were appointed to demolish the existing Lidl building and construct a new 2,200m2 food store. The design of the store is the first of its kind in the UK and represents the latest in Lidls huge growth in the UK market over the last five years.
The 32-week programme started with the demolition of the existing store. A steel superstructure with aluminium roofing and cladding was then installed, along with a new carpark which now consists of both porous and non-porous paving fed into an on-site retention tank, complete with soft landscaping and new totem Lidl signage. Internally the store has been fitted out a per the Lidl brand standard, to include full ceramic tiling to floors, space heating and power infrastructure to service the sales area.
Matt Tyler, Managing Director at Dribuild said “This has been a great project to be part of, particularly with it being the first of this design in the UK. We’d like to thank the team, our supply chain and the local community for helping to make this such a success and we look forward to working with Lidl again in the future.”
