The project involved the construction of a new 120,000 sq ft Tesco superstore on a brownfield site. The available area on the site was such that the superstore was designed on “stilts” to allow customer parking beneath. The local authority and other interested parties were keen to produce an iconic building for this gateway site and the resulting design included a curved sinusoidal roof with 15m high frameless glazed walls suspended from the steel.
