Clugston Construction Secures Multi Million Pound Contract for New Generation Lidl

Clugston Construction, part of the privately owned Clugston Group, has secured a multi-million pound contract to build a new Lidl supermarket in Scarborough.

The scheme is one of a new generation of sleek energy efficient stores currently being rolled out throughout the UK by Lidl, and is being built by Clugston Construction’s North East office.

Once complete in January next year, it will form a key part of a wider residential development, also under construction on the site of the Town’s former football stadium.

The new store is designed to put customers and Lidl employees at the heart of it, while also boasting a brand new architectural structure and spacious layout which, with its wider aisles, longer tills, restroom and baby changing facilities, will offer an enhanced shopping experience and superior welfare facilities for Lidl’s growing customer base.

The new concept Lidl store will also use the latest energy efficient technology to cut down on its environmental impact. The building will reduce the CO2 emission rate by more than 20% in comparison with a building of the same type, size and use; which is around 40 tons of CO2 per year. This is equal to nine households, which would take eight cars off the road for a year or flying a jumbo jet for over 700 miles.

Commenting on the new store Lidl UK Regional Head of Property, David Murphy, said: “We are really excited at the prospect of bringing a new store to Scarborough. This marks a substantial investment in the local community and will create 40 new jobs when the store opens. We would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone for their support and look forward to opening our doors in the not too distant future.”

Andy Mackintosh, Clugston Construction regional manager for the North East commented, “We’re delighted to be working on the Lidl development in Scarborough, which continues Clugston Construction’s expansion in the region. We are looking forward to delivering a successful project.”

Clugston Construction is working alongside Space Architecture and structural engineering company, HPBW Civil & Engineering Service on the project.
