Sutterton Truck Stop

Sutterton Truck Stop

A 24/7 Starbucks coffee shop and drive-thru, Budgens supermarket and filling station opened at the £6.5million Shell Sutterton Truck Port in September 2019. The Jordon Group had the privilege of being fit-out contractor for the filling station and convenience store and supermarket, project managed by Mike Perry and his highly skilled install team.

Also on site is a McDonald’s restaurant and drive-thru, washing facilities and even a barbers! This is the area’s first dedicated services for lorry drivers. The roundabout sits where the A16 and A17 meet, and it’s busy with commuter traffic, holidaymakers heading to Skegness or Hunstanton, and thousands of trucks serving south Lincolnshire’s multi-million-pound food industry.

Owner Vasi said: “This is one of the busiest roundabouts in Lincolnshire, we hope we will see lots customers around here and give them the best experience.”

The Budgens store is light, modern and airy. Customers can buy a wide array of supermarket goods as well as pay for fuel which is sure to be a huge success.

Our thanks go to the entire team for choosing us as fit-out specialists for this project and we wish you the very best with the new truck stop.

EG Group Headquarters

EG Group Headquarters

The Jordon Group we are so very proud to have completed such an outstanding development, take-a-look inside the new EG Headquarters in Blackburn, project managed by Chris Durr and his team of highly skilled joiners and engineers…

The four-story building with views over Fishmoor Reservoir at Haslingden Road took three years to complete and takes up 130,000 square feet of space. The new offices have 36 state of the art meeting rooms and can accommodate up to 700 staff with room for more in the future, making it one of the largest commercial building projects of its kind in the region.

Staff took up residency in the building in mid-August but due current social distancing restrictions only half the number are working in the offices.

Tom Jeremiah, Group Planning and Permit Director at the EG Group said, “This feels like our home already and the staff are loving their new surroundings. Blackburn with Darwen has been good to us and this is a way of repaying our staff who deserve this for all their hard work. It is recognition of all the efforts.”

The building includes, a large reception area, conference facilities, training rooms, a prayer area, a staff restaurant which can accommodate more than a 100 staff at any one time, two large open-plan offices each holding up to 300 staff, a board room and further offices with balconies on the fourth floor. Work on the top floor is continuing as is landscape gardening at the rear of the building where a path can be used by staff for taking a gentle stroll or to take some exercise.

The offices are Covid-19 compliant, with a one-way system in place, hand sanitisers and automated temperature check on entrance and staff working at different hours of the day.

We would like to thank Euro Garages for choosing us as their contractors for this wonderful project, we hope you love it as much as we do.

Asda on the move

Asda on the move

The Jordon Group are delighted to announce that the first of the three trial sites for Eurogarages and Asda, named “Asda on the move”, started trading just days after the owners of Euro Garages, Mohsin and Zuber Issa, and partners at a private equity company agreed to buy Asda for £6.8bn.

The new outlet, which we had the pleasure of completely redeveloping, at the established Primley service station in Walsall, is the first of three Asda on the Move convenience stores planned for Euro Garages forecourt sites in the Midlands as part of a trial. Two more outlets are planned for sites at Ashby and Leamore.

Asda announced it was launching the new format in conjunction with the EG Group last month. Preyash Thakrar, Asda’s chief strategy officer, said: “Our partnerships strategy is focused on making our busy customers’ lives easier. That means offering convenience when they visit our stores by bringing in complementary brands to help them complete more shopping missions in one location, and convenience that makes our great value products more accessible in local communities.”

Here at Jordon’s we would like to thank EG Group for choosing us as their fit-out contractor and wish them the very best with the new venture.

In the summer of 2020, we had the pleasure of completely redeveloping this state-of-the-art forecourt located on Leicester Road, Wigston in Leicester.

Costcutter Southborough

Costcutter Southborough

We would like to share and celebrate the success of the opening of Zola group’s 6th store with CSG in Southborough in Kent. Peter Patel has taken over the business which has been a part of the symbol group for many years.
The 1500 sq ft store had been closed for over 12 months and has now reopened after a much-needed refurbishment with a 250k investment fitted-out out by us, project managed by Paul Rosser and the dedicated install team.

The store launch was a huge success and enabled the first 100 customers to receive a free co-op goodie bag, handed out to shoppers by the local Mayor.
Also, with 25 winning golden ticket prizes funded by suppliers & Mr Patel, this was a huge hit and the queue to get in was 40 people long for over an hour! This was reflected in a fantastic first day sales of £4,100 (10% Tobacco 25% fresh sales mix) with the store trading 10am-9pm.

Within the store there are over 1300 co-op products driving value and basket spend and over 500 mix and match Costcutter multi-buys. There are also three local suppliers Southborough butchers, Korkers and Kentish Mayde pies, and an exciting new arrival of Vegan & Free from , Freal , cook frozen food and 100% free from packaging range which will be a key focus for the group as they plan to do two more installs by year end.

We would like to wish this flagship store continued success in the future and to thank Mr Patel and CSG Group for choosing The Jordon Group as their fit-out specialists.

Center Parcs Longleat Forest – Aqua Sana

Here at the Jordon Group we are thrilled to have worked alongside Center Parcs as their main contractor throughout the extensive redevelopment of the Aqua Sana Spa, located in the heart of Center Parcs Longleat Forest.

This huge transformation was completed in different stages and has been designed to stimulate the senses. The spa is spread across five ‘zones’ – Nordic Forest, Hot Springs, Volcanic Forest, Forest Immersion and Treetop Nesting – each celebrating different aspects of nature.

The project stretched over five phases lasting 14 months, and was finally completed in December 2019. Launching phase by phase allowed the Aqua Sana Spa to remain open during the redevelopment causing as little disruption to the visitors’ stay as possible. As each phase was completed, new spa experiences (of 24 in total) were launched and opened to the guests for their enjoyment.

In addition to the overhaul of the spa, Vitalé Café Bar also received a complete renovation.

See the transformed spa and café in the gallery below which we’re sure you’ll agree are absolutely sublime…

Aqua Sana Longleat Forest spa days and packages start from £59 per person and spa breaks from £169pp. Guests on a Center Parcs short break can use the spa from £45pp for three hours.
On behalf of the entire team at The Jordon Group we would like to thank Aqua Sana for choosing us as their fit-out specialist and wish them the very best with the new spa and café!
