Clugston given green light for new IKEA Sheffield store
Clugston Construction has secured a contract to deliver a new flagship store for home furnishing retailer IKEA in Sheffield.
The scheme will see construction and fit-out of a 31,500m2 two-storey superstore, which will provide a sales floor, warehouse, staff facilities, a cafe and children’s play areas as well as underground and external car parking areas.
Construction is due to begin imminently and follows the enabling works began earlier this year to remediate the site. The store is due to open in summer 2017.
Commenting on the contract Steve Radcliffe, Clugston Construction’s managing director said “We are delighted to have been selected to build IKEA’s new superstore in Sheffield. This I believe will be the largest retail scheme we have delivered in Yorkshire and will generate significant opportunities in the Sheffield area for our supply chain.”
The new store will create around 350 jobs in the area as diverse as sales, customer service, interior design, hospitality and logistics and 300 jobs during its construction phase.
