Mezzanine cafe for new supermarket

Posted by Marianne

Plans for a new supermarket in Scotland include a customer cafe on a  mezzanine flooring  mezzanine flooring level.

Dundee City Council has agreed plans submitted by supermarket giant Asda for a new 40,000 sq ft store in Myrekirk in Scotland. The store will be constructed on the former NCR cash machine factory premises, which were demolished in March 2012.

The building contract is worth £6.5m and will provide an estimated 200 jobs for local tradesmen during the construction and, once up and running, the new store will create around 500 retail jobs.

Construction is expected to start at the end of January 2013 and should be completed by the summer.

The new store is backed by Macdonald Estates, a local development company that has invested part of the total investment of £24m.

The entire area around Myrekirk has been revamped to ensure that the roads are capable of handling the extra traffic, which will be generated not only by large delivery lorries but also the anticipated numbers of customer cars. A large car park will be built, sympathetically landscaped to blend easily with the surrounding area.

The contractors chosen for the new build are Barr Construction from Paisley – the majority of whose projects are based on the west coast of Scotland, although the company was involved in building the basketball arena for the London Olympics.

Barr Construction has been involved in building eight large retail stores over the last 20 years, although this is the first time it has won a contract for Asda.
