– STORE EXTENSION –

DATE: 2020

THE BRIEF:

Built in 2005, the ALDI Colac store was no longer large enough to accommodate the company’s increased product range and was due for a refurbishment. ALDI requested design options to extend the retail area almost 30 per cent.

OUR APPROACH:

While the store extension itself was a fairly straightforward design, there were a number of issues which needed to be resolved during the design stage including:

• relocating the bus stop on Hesse St;
• relocating a crossover to Hesse St;
• diverting a sewer main around the extension;
• relocating external fire services;
• inclusion of a new plant enclosure while minimising the loss of parking spaces; and
• Sourcing brick type to match existing as original brick no longer available.

RESULTS:

The store remained open while the extension was completed (in December 2020). Local shoppers are now enjoying the expanded product range at their improved ALDI Colac.
