Grocery Store

Grand Projects renovates an existing building and constructs building addition for a new concept upscale Neighborhood Grocery Store and its tenants.

The Task

Grand Projects’ challenge was to transform an abandoned 1980’s vintage 25,000 square-foot suburban grocery store with peeling painted concrete block walls and a leaky roof into an upscale neighborhood-style grocery with “big store“ departments such as fresh meat/seafood, organic foods, pharmacy and on-site bakery/deli with fresh sushi in 100 DAYS!!!

 

Key Project Details:

The roof was upgraded with additional insulation and topped with a single-ply membrane for increased energy efficiency. 

bullet

New windows and EIFS (exterior insulation and finish system) were applied to the building exterior to completely transform this tired old
building into a warm and inviting retail store. 

bullet

Architectural colored and textured sidewalks were installed linking this facility to a new 6,000 SF addition housing a coffee shop,
liquor/wine store and other retail space.

bullet

Most of the existing interior construction was completely removed to accommodate an improved contemporary floor plan with open
ceilings to the roof structure. 

bullet

High efficiency lighting was designed to provide quality light levels with minimal energy usage and still display fresh food products in
Nature’s colors.

bullet

New HVAC and refrigeration equipment was installed.

bullet

Fire sprinkler systems were upgraded.

bullet

Restrooms were redecorated and modified in conformance with current ADA standards.

bullet

The Owners’ criteria included unique floor finishes with high durability and minimal maintenance.  Grand Projects partnered with local
flooring specialists to provide an attractive durable seamless system that not only concealed the extensive floor patches necessary for
installing new under floor mechanical and electrical systems but also leveled out the old well-worn existing floors.

 

Success!

The project developer contracted with Grand Projects to provide construction and design expertise as a member of the development team that consisted of store operations staff, store designers, and architect/engineer design professionals. 

Grand Projects led the team through this fast tracked project with preliminary work starting before final plans were available.  This was necessary to achieve the nearly impossible goal of opening the store in 100 days from the start of reconstruction in spite of numerous design changes along the way.  The result became a high end Neighborhood Grocery store with all of the amenities for this ambitious developer delivered by Grand Projects in 100 days!
