Construction is now underway on a new Lidl supermarket project at The Foundry Estate in Blundell’s Road, Tiverton, Devon.
Gyoury Self has been appointed by main contractor Soldi Construction to provide full Structural and Civil Engineering services for the main food store, as well as associated car parking and services. We have been working on the engineering designs alongside project architects Roberts Limbrick.
The new store will be located to the north of Blundell’s Road with a dedicated delivery bay to the north-east of the main building. The store will extend to 2,125 sqm (Gross Internal Area) with a sales area of 1,325 sqm, including an in-store bakery. Road access to the site will be from the existing Foundry Estate entrance to the south west of the site.
Provision has been made for 190 parking spaces, including 6 disabled and 8 parent and child spaces near to the store entrance with an electric charging point serving 2 further spaces. Secure cycle storage will also be provided.
A landscaping scheme will improve the visual amenity of the site including soft landscaping around the boundary of the site.
The store will be a major new investment in Tiverton town, positively contributing to the town’s economy and employment as well as enhancing the existing retail offer.
