The Project

J.P.Wild was engaged as Principal Contractor by Knight Frank LLP on behalf of their client, Squarestone Growth, to undertake a 14-week external and internal refurbishment programme of the former Pentair Valves premises, just South of Leeds City Centre.

The works comprised of the complete overhaul and refurbishment of three adjoining warehouse units and surrounding parking facilities.

ASDA has since opened its new Merchandising Centre of Excellence (MCE) within the building. The MCE includes a full-size

model store for mocking up different shelf layouts and a state-of-the-art virtual reality lab, where ASDA and its suppliers can test store layouts and construction plans virtually, making sure they get things right for customers from the start.

In addition, the site now boasts a 650-seat auditorium, where ASDA will host conferences for colleagues and suppliers, and 148 colleague parking spaces to ease some demand for parking in Leeds City Centre.
