Pontesbury Retail Store
As part of a new build housing development by Shropshire Homes for 86 dwellings with community hub and library facilities, AMCA were appointed as Architect and Principal Designers by The Co-operative Group to provide professional services from planning to pre-fit out stage for a new convenience store within the development site.
The brief was for the design of a two storey unit extending to GIA 2,700sqft sales on the ground floor level and 1,400sqft on the first floor. Site works involved the formation of retaining wall structures to give level access across the site, external services area, deliveries access and parking spaces for 30 Nr. vehicles.
AMCA worked closely with the Co-op property team and Shropshire Homes to ensure sign off of the proposals at each of the key stages in line with the client scope of service and specification guidelines. Planning approval was sought for the proposed store by way of dialogue with the Local Council Authority and all conditions promptly attended to, allowing works to commence to programme. AMCA engaged efficiently with the other design team members to include Co-op asset planners, structural & civil engineers, MEP and cost manager to ensure detailed and accurate information was communicated to the Principal Contractor on site.
AMCA’s professional services were novated to the Principal Contractor, at shell completion stage for which we provided Architect and Principal Designer services for the remaining fit out to completion of the works and handover of the store.
