Britcon has now secured 11 contracts for Lidl over the past 18 months for new stores, extensions and refurbishments, valued at approximately £16m.
At Ripley in Derbyshire Britcon is demolishing an existing Lidl store on Chapel Street to build a new purpose-designed store on the 74,000 sq ft plot. It started on site with demolition last month and expects to complete the new store before summer is out.
In Sheffield, Britcon is contracted to complete an extension to the Lidl store on Chesterfield Road. Nearly 4,000 sq ft is to be added to provide increased warehousing and freezer space, and a new Backnische (bakery).
Britcon is also building a new 24,000 sq ft store for Lidl on Wombwell, Barnsley, a new store in Bradford city centre and also an extension/refurbishment at the existing Lidl store in Market Harborough.
Britcon managing director Paul Clarkson said: “It is rewarding to see that our partnership with Lidl is proving successful as we secure further contracts. We understand retail construction well and bring added value with a one stop solution to Lidl.
“To be able to manage the entire process of demolition, site preparation and new build plus ancillaries gives peace of mind to the Lidl estates team which is pursuing a busy expansion programme.”
