Eroski inaugurates a supermarket developed by SiGLA

Last Thursday, September 17, it opened to the public

Eroski has inaugurated the last of its supermarkets developed entirely by SiGLA in Navarra

Despite Covid’19, SiGLA has managed to deliver the supermarket to Eroski on time and fully equipped.

The new supermarket is located in the Plaza de la Mujer in the Navarrese municipality of Zizur Mayor, a town in Alfoz Pamplona, ​​and aims to meet the needs of the public residing in the new neighborhood of Ardoi, an area of ​​the new urban layout that accompanies the flow of the A-12 highway to Logroño, in the northwest area of ​​Pamplona.

It is a unique or free standing building on a 5,282m2 plot in which a 2,300m2 building has been built on one floor and has a 1,300m2 sales room, with the rest of the surface being used for warehouses, personnel and technical premises. A parking lot for 78 vehicles completes this new supermarket, which includes covered spaces, spaces for people with reduced mobility and some more prepared for recharging electric vehicles.

In the design of this building, much attention has been paid to the finishes, with specific rooms in which to locate the installation machinery that is normally placed on the roof. Likewise, it has the latest advances in energy efficiency with the recovery of heat emitted by refrigerators, and intelligently managed LED lighting.

Investment, project engineering, project management, construction, installations, complete equipment, decoration and finishes have been the services that SiGLA has provided for Eroski in this case. A “turnkey” establishment in which the operator goes directly in to place his merchandise on the shelves. Even the sale of the property has already been negotiated with an investor and will be executed in the coming days.

The building was handed over to the Basque operator on July 9, meeting the initially agreed deadline despite the fact that the Covid’19 crisis forced the works to stop for 15 days in the spring. However, Eroski has considered it appropriate to postpone the opening to the public to September for commercial reasons.

The Eroski supermarket in Zizur Mayor is a good example of the capabilities of SiGLA, Servicios e Inversiones en GLA, to generate value for both operators and investors, with the complete development of a commercial establishment in conditions of immediate operation.
