Primark opens at Bluewater
April 02, 2019
The eagerly-awaited opening of the new Primark store within the Bluewater shopping complex in Kent has now taken place and Aworth is proud to have been involved with the project.
Our relationship with Landsec, owner of Bluewater goes back to when the complex opened in 1999. Bluewater is vast and covers 1.6 million sq ft of retail space surrounded by over 50 acres of parkland, including seven lakes and a million trees and shrubs. The entire development, including the connecting road infrastructure, is based upon Aworth Survey Consultant’s topographical and cadastral survey data.
In this latest project, we undertook an as-built measurement survey of the new shell store for handover to Primark from Landsec to ensure delivery of the proposed unit met with the design plans. Additional work included as-built GIA/NIA Lettable Area Calculations of the unit to quantify the useable space in line with RICS Property Measurement.
“We are very proud of our 20 year relationship with Landsec and Bluewater,” says John Witherden, Managing Director at Aworth Survey Consultants. “It was such a prestigious and exciting project to work on at its inception and it’s great to have had our expertise called upon over the years as the shopping complex has developed.”
The new 46,000 sq ft Primark store features clothing for women, men and children as well as footwear, accessories, beauty and homeware products.
