Client’s requirements

The Retail Park, in Togliatti, Russia, is a new family-oriented complex combining retail and outdoor leisure activities.

As well as housing two hypermarkets, the 20,000 sqm Auchan and 18,000 sqm stand-alone DIY hypermarket, Leroy Merlin, the 25 hectare complex includes a shopping gallery and food court, a car service point, drive-in external restaurants, and a stand-alone strip mall. Themed outdoor zones provide entertainment and sport facilities for children and teenagers.

BREEAM certification to the “Very Good” standard was a requirement from project inception. Over the three years it took to complete the project, ecological considerations were built in to decision-making.

Our contribution

We were responsible for execution of the project implementation strategy and overall project management.

Additional services included cost and tender management, contract and claim management, document control, and risk management.

Making the difference

Ceetrus Retail Park was successfully delivered both ahead of time and under budget, and to the required BREEAM standards.

We maintained stringent coordination between the development partners, Immochan, Auchan, and Lerory Merlin, as well as the group of contractors and consultants involved in the project. Aquarelle Togliatti project won The Best New Medium size Shopping Center according to RCSC Award 2018.
