Tesco Kinnegad


The F20 "Build For Less" store at Kinnegad, Athlone was the cheapest of its kind in Ireland and the UK. In order to achieve a more cost-effective solution for the project, PCL challenged and changed the original design specification. This involved exploring alternative products that could be used without impacting the build quality and performance of the store. The result was a store that was built for less without sacrificing quality or functionality.
