Tesco in Ashford

The scheme, for ISG Pearce, comprised foundations for new extensions to the existing store at Park Farm, Ashford, together with a car park extension, refurbishment of the existing car park and relocation of drainage due to new extensions.

The existing store was extended to just under 100,000 sq ft and remained open throughout the project, so a lot of careful planning was needed to work around this.

The S278 works were also awarded to Gallagher to programme and project manage from pre-commencement to stage 3 safety audit stage.

In addition, Gallagher was contracted to take the earthworks material to Hermitage Quarry and to supply all the stone and concrete, including recycled aggregates.

The project was completed in November 2011.
