Tesco, Orpington

Contract Type:  Commercial

Client:  BAM Construction Ltd

The Orpington project was Tesco’s first large-scale, mixed use town centre scheme.  The development comprised:

  • 5,900m2 of retail space over two floors
  • 3 levels of under-store customer parking
  • 73 flats for sale above the store, including Affordable Housing

BAM Construction appointed Lawtech to install a lightweight steel frame to some areas of the store and Dryvit insulated render across the whole development.

The residential areas of the building were finshed with a rail system to comply with the NHBC requirement for a drain cavity behind the render system whenever the EWI is not fixed onto solid masonry.  The store area received a directly-fixed system with multiple thicknesses of insulation.  Dryvit produced bespoke ‘Tesco Red’ and ‘Tesco Blue’ finishes to match the retailer’s corporate colours.

The Tesco development won a RIBA award.  Lawtech went on to complete further works for BAM Construction based on the quality of our service and the performance of our skilled site team.
