Asda Grangemouth was McLaren’s first development for ASDA in Scotland and the third distribution centre.
The project was a new build 496,877 sq ft ambient distribution centre with external hard and soft landscaping.
The building required 4,721 pre-cast driven piles, at an average of 27m deep.

Construction works consisted of major bulk earthworks, structural steel frame, composite cladding, 60 dock levellers, 24 level access doors, external fuel stations, tanker washers and gatehouse.
There was also extensive combined cycleway and footpath improvement works to the perimeter of the site.
