Dawm Construction completes new Morrsions supermarket in Erskine

A new Morrisons supermarket building in Erskine has been completed and handed over - keeping it on schedule for its summer opening.

Dawn Construction, one of Scotland's leading independent construction and property developers, built the 40,000sqm, development, with a mezzanine level of 500 sq.m, within the Bridgewater Shopping Centre during a 30-week period.

The build project - which was preceded by a challenging 15 week enabling works package - involved the construction of the shell retail unit with associated external works including car parking, service yard and reconfiguration of the existing parking.

Morrisons is expected to open its new supermarket in August, creating a number of jobs for the surrounding area and providing a more convenient and attractive shopping destination for the local population, who can also expect to see a renovation to the other areas of their local shopping centre.

The Erskine supermarket is one of a number of retail projects Dawn Construction, part of the Dawn Group, expects to deliver in the coming months. These include the Antonine Shopping Centre in Cumbernauld and the Glasgow North Retail Park in Robroyston.

Ray Eve, managing director of Dawn Construction, said: "This was a challenging site to complete due to the high number of people continuing to use the existing live shopping centre, however, we completed the job to the highest standard with very little disruption to the public.

"The new development offers vastly improved facilities compared to its predecessor and has been built to be easily accessible for local residents. The new Morrisons supermarket will certainly strengthen the economy of Erskine not only by creating jobs, but by keeping consumer spend in the town."
