Highways: EJS Associates
The new Lidl store is located in the picturesque town of Holmfirth. The store was designed to compliment and blend in with the surrounding area. Stone walls,¬†a slate parapet roof¬†and architectural stone features replicated from the previous building on the site were used in the building design. This continued and enhanced ¬†the existing street scene along Huddersfield Road leading ¬†into Holmfirth town centre..
The site presented¬†numerous challenges during the construction of the store. These included upgrading an existing culvert running through the site ¬†and diverting a mains sewer around the new Lidl store. ¬†Large retaining structures were also required along the bank of River Holme, to create a level plato for the store and car park to be built.
