Supermarket checks out steel design

Posted on by in News

Structural steelwork dominates the supermarket sector and a recent example of this success story is a recently opened Asda in Cheltenham.

Working on behalf of main contractor ISG, Walter Watson fabricated, supplied and erected 265t of steel to form the portal frame of the 7,000m² store.

A quick steelwork programme contributed to an overall 27 week construction scheme being completed on time. The store is situated on a former brownfield site and the plot required remediation prior to groundworks and steelwork erection beginning.

The steel frame supports a green sedum roof and timber cladding to the external elevations. A Sustainable Urban Drainage System car park has also been built to help ensure impact on the local environment is minimised.
