Leroy Merlin Venizelos, Greece


Project date: 2006-2007

Services: Project and Construction Management

Project owner: SGB S.A

Location: Spata, Greece

The Leroy Merlin Venizelos store is located inside the commercial development area of Athens International Airport and includes 9.000m2 of internal sales, an outdoor sales courtyard with adjacent warehouses, a mezzanine for administration offices and parking facilities (underground and outdoor of 700 spaces). The underground parking was built in parallel with the erection of the steel shell of the retail building in a fast track implementation process. The project was developed as a model store for all later developments of the client. Focal was awarded the full Project & Construction Management. Pre-construction tasks included design review, construction tender management, negotiation and awarding. Construction tasks covered site supervision, cost and time control, payments and claims management, and all documents control. The client’s mobilization for fit out in parallel with the contractor’s finishing works, and coordination with the airport supervising authorities presented an extra challenge which was managed successfully.
