Cleveland Construction, Inc. performed as the general contractor for the expansion and store remodel of an existing 119,832 square-foot Walmart Supercenter located in Manchester, Connecticut.
The newly expanded 148,234 square-foot retail store was completely remodeled and included a 28,402 square-foot grocery center and sales floor expansion along with the addition of a new exterior vestibule. An additional parking area was added along with a segmental retaining wall to accommodate the new loading dock area in the rear of the building.
Additional scope of work included improving the overall layout of the store with wider aisles, bathroom renovations, checkout areas and customer service, creating new office space, and updating flooring, lighting and paint throughout the stores. The new grocery area includes a deli, bakery and produce areas as well as new energy-efficient refrigeration units.
To ensure the safest conversion with the least possible disruption to customers, Cleveland Construction completed the construction over ten phases during a 15-month period while the store remained open to the public during all phases.
The retail expansion and interior remodel project was completed in August 2014.
