The Marks & Spencer Foodhall in Darlington comprised the construction of an 11,000 sq ft M&S retail unit with ground and concrete mezzanine floor to shell finish.
The development was complete with pedestrian and car parking infrastructure and perimeter landscaping, mains service containment, exterior building and car park lighting, boundary fencing, acoustic fencing and retaining wall.
The unit was constructed within Westpark Garden Village, a previously barren parcel of land transformed into a flourishing garden village, and addressed the requirement for a new M&S Foodhall in the vicinity of Darlington following the introduction of M&S’s five-year transformation programme.
The retail unit was of steel frame construction on driven precast square concrete piled foundations and a cast in-situ ground bearing slab. The building's envelope comprised aluminium framed curtain walling and glazing system, masonry cavity wall on facing brick and block internal skin, high-level insulated wall cladding and a built up roof system with insulated cladding.
