Work complete on build of £10m Wickes store in Aberdeen

WORK has been completed on the build of a new £10 million Wickes store in Aberdeen’s Kingshill Park.

The purpose-built 25,000 sq ft store, along with 79 car parking spaces and an outdoor projects centre, was built by Clark Contracts.

The new building is of a steel frame design and incorporates high-performance composite wall and roof cladding and is designed such that a mezzanine floor can be fitted to increase stoor capacity.

When open, the new store will bring around 25 new jobs to the local economy and will see Wickes offering more DIY product choice to consumers in the Granite City.

Sarah Taitt, chief property and services officer at Wickes, said, “The new Wickes store will officially open in August. As well as providing work opportunities for the local area, we look forward to offering residents of Aberdeen access to a wide range of home improvement products, services, and expert advice from our knowledgeable staff.”

Howard Crawshaw, MD of Knight Property Group, added, “The successful completion of this project brings positive news. We’re thrilled to welcome Wickes back into Aberdeen and also into our portfolio of tenancies at Westhill, enhancing the offerings for customers around Westhill.”
