Shopping Centre – Swords

In 2017, a construction and fitout project was undertaken at Airside Swords Shopping Centre to build a F23 Tesco superstore and four new multipurpose units. The project involved site clearance, construction, and fitout of the new Tesco Format 23 supermarket and units, as well as the redirection of an existing culvert and other site work. In 2019, an extension was added to the existing Tesco store in a live trading environment. This project involved the excavation and demolition of an existing gable, the installation of a needle beam support, and the construction and fitout of the extension to the trading store. The result of these projects was a modern, fully-functional shopping destination for customers to enjoy.
