Saunders has more than 25 years experience of working with Tesco. As a framework architect ...
Saunders were appointed to undertake planning and detailed design of the development of this Tesco Extra store at Old Trafford, the anchor building of the Stretford Regeneration masterplan.
The completed store was developed in partnership with Lancashire County Cricket Club and formed a link between the cricket club, Manchester United Football Club and the historic town hall site. As part of the development of the 80,000 sq, ft store, £21 million was injected into the redevelopment of the adjacent Old Trafford cricket ground.
The scheme ensures that the store is integrated into the site and maximises links with the surrounding area. The masterplan design incorporates an interactive boulevard with bespoke landscaping and piece of public art, “Flight of the Ball” Inspired by cricket – the 7m high sculpture represents the bounce of the ball as it approaches the wicket.
