When Birstall Garden Centre decided to create a brand new Delicatessen as part of an ambitious expansion program at their Leicestershire base they chose HSP to take on the design and construction phase.

With their site increasingly becoming a “destination” centre the structure would dramatically increase their ability to cater for customers wishing to spend more time on site, in a relaxed environment, incorporating a new entrance, beautiful seating area and restroom facilities.

We were able to introduce them to another customer where we had untaken a similar project, demonstrate our ability to fulfil the brief precisely and to advise on many aspects of the project implementation.

Working with their specific set of requirements we created a unique structure, designed to suit its position within the garden centre.

A glazed “lantern” was introduced to allow light to flood in during daylight hours but as the light fades, the surrounding down-lighting would take effect and produce a cosy “fireside” feel in the evening.

A two tone colour detail was used to tie the structure into the Garden Centre colour scheme and solid floors were carefully designed to flow through into the existing areas.

Every aspect of the design was thought through carefully and discussed with the customer at every stage to ensure a smooth project flow from start to finish.
