Kier £22m Pontypridd Supermarket

Tuesday, 6th September 2011
  Kier Western has started work on a £22m project to build a new Sainsbury’s supermarket in Pontypridd with completion scheduled for July 2012. The 40,000 square foot Sainsbury’s store will replace the dilapidated 190-year-old Brown Lenox chainworks that had remained vacant since its closure in 2000, until its demolition earlier this year.
 
Designed by Cardiff based architects Stride Treglown, it is to be built on stilts over car parking and will become a prominet landmark viewed from theA470. The Project Manager is Davis Langdon.     Stride Treglown director, Gareth Davies said; “We’re delighted to be involved in bringing a brand new, state of the art Sainsbury’s store to Pontypridd. The town has great regeneration ambitions and we are sure that our sympathetic design supports this.”    
Other investments in Pontypridd will see £76.5m of improvement projects in the town by the end of 2014, including a new Taff Vale Precinct, a refurbished railway station and improved town centre landscape.
