Description

This project involved the construction of a new retail park on a prominent green field site at South Road, Wick in Caithness. This is the main approach into Wick from the south, and is the first group of buildings at the town limits. The site extends to over 2.1hectares and has seven retail outlets including the anchor units of Homebase complete with a garden centre and an Argos store with all units having a total floor area extending to some 75,000sqft Class 1 retail floor space with associated car parking, landscaping and infrastructure works. Designed using a restricted palette of quality materials to suit the prominent location at the entrance to Wick, the design features projecting eaves to the front of the units to give shelter from the elements.
