New Lidl HQ planned for south west London

Main contractor Winvic Construction has secured the contract to build a new UK headquarters in Tolworth, south west London for German supermarket chain Lidl.

The 23,200m² building will be just five miles from Lidl’s current HQ in Wimbledon and is expected to take two years to complete.

Northamptonshire-based Winvic is said to have been appointed based on its extensive experience across a wide range of sectors, its 100 per cent record of on-schedule delivery and the successful completion of Lidl’s UK Distribution Centre in Exeter.

While the main contractor has made its reputation as the UK’s leading ‘shed specialist’, it has enjoyed sustained growth in the retail and civils sectors as well as constructing individual large commercial offices and whole business parks.

Winvic Director Danny Nelson commented: “Securing the Lidl headquarters contract is in part testament to Winvic’s ability to exceed client expectations. We are delighted that the supermarket giant wants to now benefit from our commercial project expertise, following Winvic’s completion of its Exeter distribution warehouse in 2017. The larger office space that will allow Lidl to grow its business even further, will be ready for occupation in two years.”

Ingo Fischer, Lidl UK Board Director for Expansion and Development, added: “We are delighted to confirm the appointment of Winvic, to construct our new headquarters. It is a company much like Lidl, with ambitions of continued growth and exacting standards; we have every confidence that the building will be delivered with the same passion as the other Lidl developments Winvic has completed and is currently undertaking.”
