Vinci lands second Tesco deal in three weeks with £11.4m win

Vinci has been awarded an £11.4m contract from Tesco to undertake the enabling work for a proposed store in Eston, Teesside.

Work will be carried out by the BuildingDivision - Retail & Interiors arm of Vinci Construction UK and will include initial surveying; site clearance of trees and bushes; service diversions; removal of petrol tanks and grubbing out trees.

The win comes just weeks after Vinci was awarded a £46m deal to build a new retail and leisure development in the centre of West Bromwich for Tesco.

Vinci’s building dividion for Midlands, South-west, Wales and retail managing director Chris Pape said: “We are thrilled to be working with the local community and Tesco once again on this development in Eston which will bring local jobs for local people.

“As part of the wider regeneration of the area, this store will play a huge role in boosting community morale and spearheading sustainable development.”

Vinci said the new store will provide the local residents of Eston and surrounding areas with improved shopping facilities, as well as creating 450 new employment opportunities in the area as part of Tesco’s regeneration partnership with the council.

The new eco-store and retail units are being constructed on vacant land opposite Eston Recreation Ground.
