The contracts follow Britcons’ completion of store extensions for Lidl in Coventry, Leicester, Grimsby, and Barton on Humber.

For Lidl’s fourth store in Leicester Britcon is converting an existing retail site on Burton Street at the junction of St George’s Way and Humberstone Road.  It is reconfiguring three units to relocate an existing Staples store on the site and provide a new purpose-designed 1,860 m2 store for Lidl.  Britcon will provide a new roof, new entrance, and modern external cladding works with curtain wall glazing.

It will also include new mezzanine levels within a complete internal fit out and provide new external parking facilities. Britcon expects to complete the project in 28 weeks.

In Brigg, Britcon is providing a 200 m2 extension to the Lidl store on Atherton Way to provide a bakery.  Works starts next week with a 12-week programme.

Britcon managing director Paul Clarkson said, “We are delighted that our previous work has inspired further contracts and a trusting relationship with Lidl moving forward.  This brings our total number of projects for Lidl to six in the last 12 months.”
