Work starts on sports outlet
Main contractor ISG and steelwork contractor Walter Watson have started work on a circa £5M contract with Sports Direct to deliver its first new build outlet in Scotland.
Designed specifically to house the company’s leading retail fascias under one roof, including Sports Direct, Flannels, USC and an Everlast Fitness Club, the new development is located close to Glasgow Fort shopping destination.
The scheme comprises the refurbishment and reconfiguration of a former retail unit adjacent to an existing Morrisons store on Auchinlea Way, along with the construction of a three-storey steel-framed extension, totalling over 16,700m² of retail space.
ISG will complete the construction of the new outlet towards the end of the year, with the store fit out due to commence in early 2018.
