Holmfirth Lidl

Project Details

Location: Huddersfield Road, Holmfirth
Client: Lidl UK GmbH
Contractor: PDR Construction
Engineer: Sharpe Topping
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.
