Superstore Wymondham Wm Morrison Supermarkets plc

Race Cottam was appointed by Morrisons to overhaul an inherited masterplan with planning approval for this constrained brownfield site. By referencing local precedents and materials, the sensitive nature of the design has allowed the character of the building to merge comfortably into its setting within a historic market town.  The architecture of the main façade provides a welcoming approach with the scale and feel of a traditional market hall.

The new 24,000 sqft new build superstore has been warmly welcomed by the residents and has enjoyed an excellent trade following its opening to the public. The building phase was realised in 26 weeks by working in close conjunction with the main contractor, RG Group.
