Working on behalf of Tesco Stores, this development was focused around the food supermarket anchor. The brief was to design an Eco-store and District Centre that appreciated the nature conservation & cultural heritage of the area, this was achieved through sensitive landscaping and a visually impacting yet locality appreciative scheme.

SMR’s Design team achieved planning consent for Eston, via a hybrid planning application, detailed planning was initially secured for; a large format retail store, adjoining retail units, petrol Station and landscaping, with outline planning secured for; public spaces, restaurant and walk-in centre.

The overall scheme achieved a BREEAM Very Good rating through the delivery of numerous environmental initiatives; natural mixed mode ventilation, roof lights & sun pipes, Quantum-C™ Wall System: a sustainable and environmentally friendly cladding system and high performance curtain walling.

We were delighted when the scheme received a design ‘Commendation’ at the Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council Design Awards.
