Project: Parc Plaza, Bridgend
Client name: Dovey Estates
Client overview: Dovey Estates is a Cardiff-based commercial developer.
Brief description of the scheme: Jehu was contracted to build 63,000 ft² of retail outlet on Parc Plaza, a popular commercial development on the outskirts of Bridgend. The units were delivered ahead of schedule and are now occupied by Dunelm Mill, Argos Extra, Costa Coffee, Greggs and Subway.
Additional information: The units included an additional 16,000 ft² of first floor mezzanine floor to increase the density of the retail area.
As part of a Section 278 agreement with the Local Authority, the scheme required a new access link from the A48 off the main roundabout at Waterton Cross. This involved a realignment of the existing roundabout, adjustment to road levels, an additional exit and de-acceleration lanes, all of which were constructed outside of peak traffic times and normal working hours.
