Won through an open OJEU competitive process, EWA are working with developers Augur Buchler Partners to redevelop an under-utilised 2 hectare site in Cheltenham for new retail spaces close to the town centre. The scheme involves a 60,000 sqft gross new food store and car parking both for the store and town centre shoppers, all set around a new public space. The design has been developed through dialogue with DC CABE and English Heritage due to the surrounding sensitive context. The store is aiming to achieve BREEAM 'Excellent'. Completion expected Autumn 2014
