Architect: Various


GDM were initially appointed on a Framework agreement with Lendlease to provide MEPH design services on their retail stock consisting of six large shopping centres throughout the UK.

As part of this package we have undertaken designs and the project management of a number of large retail shell projects, which involve the combining of various smaller retail units in to single larger units and the construction of new retail space.

These projects have seen us work in Dundee, Warwickshire and Kent with the latter providing some extra 400,000 sq ft of retail space within the Bluewater shopping centre.

Following the sale of the portfolio to Land Securities GDM have remained as part of the core team working on a project by project basis providing a full range of services from simple feasibility studies to detailed design of major expansion projects.

Over the last 4 years within the Bluewater centre we have been involved in new construction projects having a contract value in excess of £25m.
