St Stephen’s Shopping Centre is one of Hull’s most popular shopping destinations. A key retail unit within the £200M development for Hull, the Tesco Extra provides approx 120,000 sq.ft of sales area. ‘Trial’ initiatives included updated staff facilities; a reorganised mezzanine sales floor area and new customer services.

The complex scheme includes an undercroft car park, shared vertical transportation and a further mezzanine sales area. Acting as monitoring architect for Tesco through the shell works, we added value through increased car parking provision, re-organised servicing and alterations to the structural grid. Once on site as fit-out architects we coordinated a number of major changes to the layout through the course of the project.

At the time of opening the store was one of the biggest UK sales floors within the Tesco store portfolio.
