ASDA Newport

This 40,000 sq ft store for the national food retailer is the result of a lengthy planning process resulting in Asda’s first store on the Island which presents customers the latest comprehensive choice of retail offers including a Coffee Shop, Home Shopping, Click and Collect and a Petrol Station. The design evolved significantly during the lifespan of the project as a consequence of the prolonged feasibility and planning stages and to respond to the changing retail climate during this period.

The store forms part of a wider development connecting to the Pan Meadow residential development, phase one being an HGP Architects scheme for Barratt Homes.

The construction of the site presented multiple challenges, the existing site sloping some 14m across, requiring careful cut & fill design to achieve the most cost effective solution forming a plateau for the construction of the store and car park, the use of earth retaining walls soften the elevated construction from the lower access off St Georges Way.
