ASDA, Gorseinon near Swansea

  • Location : Gorseinon near Swansea
  • Client : ASDA/ISG Plc

Over the past few years SageRowe has completed many quality masonry projects. One such example is the 5,000 m2 new ASDA store at Gorseinon, which had a start to completion schedule of just 24 weeks.

Our role involved the construction of the external stone façade. Once we had sourced the locally quarried Welsh Blue Pennant stone it was dressed on-site by our teams. We then had to devise a method of pinning the bespoke stonework to what would initially be a white blank structure. This unique method was designed primarily by ourselves and formally approved by the Local Authority and ASDA. The stone façade certainly elevates and enhances the appearance of the structure and provides the store with a style that is unique to the area.

It is, without doubt, the main feature of the building.

SageRowe operatives also undertook the construction of a 1,000m2 service yard wall, again with a stunning stone façade tied to face block work. In addition we also built numerous boundary walls, various store rooms and a cash office, etc. all constructed in a similar manner and to a very high standard.

This was a challenging and complex project, which was completed to an exceptionally high standard by our masons under the guidance of our onsite management.

Our Goal

Our goal was to further develop our partnership with the client, which in turn resulted in continuing growth for SageRowe, both in size and reputation by providing the best possible build for both the client and the people of the surrounding area. SageRowe honored a commitment to the local environment by using locally sourced materials, 75% local labour and achieving 100% segregation of waste.

Whilst achieving all our goals, the works were also completed on time and within budget, as well as achieving accolades for the works from both the principal contractor ISG and ASDA.
