Milngavie Waitrose plans submitted
November 2 2012submitted plans to build a new 37,000sq/ft outlet, service yard and 225 space car park in Milngavie
Designed by 3D Reid the store is said to employ a ‘bespoke design’ and has been conceived around a feature canopy/portico. It will be clad in timber and other natural materials.
A BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating is being striven for with natural daylight, LED lighting, cold air retrieval and re-distribution ventilation and other carbon reduction strategies employed.
In conjunction to the retail outlet Waitrose will also finance construction of a new all-weather sports pitch for West of Scotland Football Club.
Waitrose insist that they will “work closely with the town centre traders and businesses” and will build the store during 2013 for completion in 2014 if their application is successful.
Two new branches are set to open in Stirling and Helensburgh in 2013.
