Demolition of existing and build of new Little Clacton store




52 weeks




July 2022

The Little Clacton store was originally built in the early 90’s, operating first as a Safeway store and later being brought under the Morrisons brand.
A maturing belt of nearby trees was causing major structural issues to the building and the decision was made to demolish the store and take the opportunity to build a new energy efficient store in its place.
Having worked with Morrisons for over 25 years Princebuild were delighted to be awarded the project, the largest to be undertaken for the retailer to date and the first new build store Princebuild have built for Morrisons.

A temporary store was erected on the site to continue to provide for customers and once that was up and running the demolition and redevelopment of the site got underway.
Princebuild undertook all works from the installation of 470 piles for the foundations, to the external cladding and the internal fit out.
The project was as rewarding as it was challenging but the store was successfully handed over on time for the grand opening in July.
An altered site layout allowed for better placement of the new store within the site, maximising the space and providing a better flow for customers and deliveries.
