The Challenge

Delivery of the first phase of a masterplan for the regeneration of Northwich town centre, including demolition and remediation of a 4.5acre site, and construction of a new 27,500 sq ft Waitrose supermarket and 208-space car park. The site also houses a 58-bed McCarthy and Stone extra care facility and leisure space.

Waitrose, Northwich

Preparing the site for construction involved the demolition of a derelict cinema, removal of asbestos and knottweed, treatment and removal of hydro carbons, and re-engineering site levels above the potential flood line of canal-side site.

Description of Works:

  • 27,411 sq. ft. new build which needed to be completed within a 50-week programme;
  • Clearance of existing structures, site remediation and remodelling for reduction of flood risk to the new store and adjacent sheltered accommodation.
  • Store constructed over a void to provide site attenuation in flood conditions.
  • Also responsible for the landscaping, car parking and delivery areas and creating an attractive, double height glass atrium for the entrance lobby and new paving along the store frontage;
  • Construction of new River wall, slipway and public footpath.
