McArthurGlen Ashford Designer Outlet
Ashford Designer Outlet is currently undertaking its first expansion since opening in 2000.
The £90 million expansion will deliver up to 50 additional premium and luxury brands, a new food piazza, 725 further car parking spaces as well as a new events space and a redesigned children’s play area. Once the 100,000ft² expansion is complete Ashford Designer Outlet will become one of the UK’s flagship fashion, food and homeware destinations, with over 130 stores, restaurants and cafes. The expansion will also include the installation of Europe’s largest living wall structure, and many of the stores in the new phase will be clad in tens of thousands of plants, all stacked vertically.
Currie & Brown’s involvement in the scheme commenced in 2013 with the provision of early cost planning advice and continued through the single-stage procurement process undertaken in 2017. Works started on site in January 2018, when Currie & Brown provided post-contract cost management and employer’s agent services through to completion.
