ASDA Petrol Filling Station – Rhyl, Wales
As part of our ongoing framework agreement with Asda, Bowman Riley was commissioned to take over the design and delivery of a new petrol filling station in Rhyl from another architectural practice.
With only two weeks before start on site, it was critical to appraise the design quickly and produce construction detailed drawings to ensure the smooth delivery of the project.
Sited next to an adjacent to an existing Asda superstore, the new petrol filling station was previously occupied by a single two storey ommercial building.
The facility is a six pump station with two new 75,000 litre underground storage tanks, canopy, kiosk, dual jet wash bays together with a vacuum/air/water bay.
The scheme involved creating new access, a forecourt, car parking and service bays, drainage, lighting, CCTV and signage totem.
The site is close to the seafront and as such we liaised with Natural Resources Wales to agree the best design solution to protect the tidal ground water table. Working with the structural engineer, a concrete sealed underground space was created to house the fuel tanks. This design solution will further reduce the potential of seawater pollution in the event of a failure of the containment of the tanks.
