Offsite specialist re-creates sixties-style supermarket at Goodwood Park in Sussex
This is one of offsite construction specialist Yorkon’s most challenging and unusual projects - a specially designed sixties-style Tesco supermarket for this year’s Goodwood Revival, the UK’s biggest historic motor racing event.
A typical sixties street scene was created for the event at Goodwood Park in Sussex, including a period car park, bus depot and a fully trading Tesco supermarket.
Inside, visitors to the Revival were able to buy some of their favourite products from the era, some complete with heritage packaging.
Yorkon used concepts by retail design consultant CDW & Partners to create the store, which was completed in seven weeks, from receipt of order to handover.
The retro store included a stone-effect fascia with four white mosaic columns reminiscent of a sixties precinct, anodised aluminium glazing, an ice cream hatch with a canvas canopy, period fridges, signage from the era, a pebbledash-type finish to the end and rear walls, and separate entry and exit doors.
The 1,700ft2 supermarket comprised six steel-framed modules which were manufactured off site at the Yorkon production centre in York and pre-fitted out with partitions, back-of-house facilities, electrics, chequerboard vinyl tile flooring, and other themed internal finishes, before being delivered to Goodwood and craned into position in just one day.
The retro store will be re-used for the Goodwood Revival for the next two years.
