Tesco Foodstore Armagh
This foodstore development is located on a 4.5 acre site, north of Armagh City centre, former home to a Fane valley factory unit.
The building comprises of 80,000 sqft floor space, including a single storey supermarket, mezzanine level office/staff accommodation along with associated car parking, landscaping and services.
Breaking away from the traditional design for large retail units, the primary building structure incorporates a timber glulam frame for the main retail space with a steel frame to delivery and storage areas. The building is clad in a combination of curtain walling and composite insulated panelling which has been faced in a larch outer rainscreen. The glulam frame minimises the number of internal columns and affords greater flexibility for change.
The extensive use of exposed timber , both internally & externally help to create a warm & inviting feel to the building. The large format rooflights provide natural daylight to the retail area which is further enhanced by the curtain walling and clerestorey glazing.
