ISG Builds On Dominion Trust’s Assets
ISG has successfully completed a £3.5 million scheme for developer Dominion Corporate Trustees Ltd & Dominion Trust Ltd, to construct four new retail units in a standalone building at the client’s existing Yate Shopping Centre in Bristol.
The 21-week programme saw ISG construct a two-storey building located in an area of the shopping centre’s existing car park. The steel-frame building now provides an additional 50,000 sq. ft. of sales floor to Dominion Trust’s assets at Yate Shopping Centre and three of the units have already been let to M&S Simply Food, Sports Direct and Costa Coffee, with the fourth currently under negotiation.
The scheme is the first to be carried out for Dominion Trust by ISG and follows a £16.5 million Tesco project to construct a new store on Dominion Trust land, which was completed in October 2011. ISG has also won the fit out contract for the M&S Simply Food unit in a separate contract, which will include full store fit out and completion of an amenities block.
Andy Demetriou, operations director at ISG, commented: “Building additional retail capacity on existing car parking provision is a growing trend, especially in out of town retail centres, as landlords look at new ways of optimising their assets. Our extensive retail experience incorporates major new build stores, smaller retail unit construction as well as our full fit out expertise, and this total retail proposition continues to provide clients with a comprehensive range of options through ISG.”
