Retail Food Store

Carmarthen

The new 87,000 ft2 store in Carmarthen is located on the edge of town centre, and occupies a site formerly occupied by Carmarthen Athletic Rugby Club; enabling them to relocate to new enhanced facilities elsewhere in the town.

The site is located adjacent a conservation area and town park overlooking the topographically challenging site to the north; accordingly particular interest was given to the roof scape. Raised roof features were incorporated into the design to break up the roof mass, and the scheme was well received when presented to the Design Commission for Wales.

Due to the site topograpyh, extensive use of timber crib retaininhg structures and soil nailing were utilised to the site boundaries.
