Aldi Stores Limited is one of the world’s largest privately owned companies with more than 7,000 stores across Europe, North America and Australia.

When Aldi was granted planning permission to construct 937 space multi-storey car park at its UK and Ireland Head Office to support the ongoing growth of the business, Spectrum was appointed specialist envelope contractor to supply the external envelope package for the project.

The three storey car park is a split level design comprising of a ground floor and two upper decks on both sides. The car park tied into the existing on-site road network and was constructed next to a live watercourse which had to be diverted in order to accommodate the structure and form a new nature walk.

Spectrum’s scope of works included Topdek roof panels to the stair towers, 2700 sqm of composite facade clad in aluminium interlocking planks, 950m of parapet capping and 172 column casings.

The Spectrum team worked closely with all parties within the supply chain to ensure that the project was completed on time and that the building benefited from quality of delivery and design.
