We’re delighted to announce our role in creating an “irresistible dining destination” after winning the contract for the multi-million-pound transformation of McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Bridgend.

Over the coming months, Paramount will revamp the shopping centre’s popular Food Court. The development will see the Food Court transformed into three modern, and bright restaurants, welcoming new food and beverage brands to the centre and creating more than 100 new job opportunities for the local community.

Paul Thomas, Construction Director at Paramount, said:

“The team behind the scenes at McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Bridgend have fantastic plans for the future and we’re delighted to have been entrusted with the mission to help turn their exciting vision into a reality. Paramount prides itself on creating places where people want to be, and my team are relishing the opportunity to help create what will be an irresistible dining destination. It’s certain to be a complex project, but we have the expertise and local knowledge to deliver outstanding results in close collaboration with our project partners.”

Our team are ready to lay the groundwork by removing some existing structures around the Food Court and will then introduce a series of new features as part of the overall facelift. These include new glazed entrance doors within glazed curtain walling shopfront, render and a new entrance lobby with new stairs and lifts.

The work in the shopping centre starts 23rd April and is due to complete in late Autumn. As a result, customer favourites including Nando’s, McDonald’s and Chopsticks will be closed while the work is under way.

Patrick Finney, Head of European Construction, McArthurGlen Group, said:

“After celebrating our 25th anniversary last year, we’re extremely pleased to welcome Paramount on board in this important step of revitalising the Food Court area. These are exciting times for everyone at one of South Wales’ best-loved retail complexes and we know Paramount will work closely with us to create a truly special place for diners and shoppers of all ages.”

We look forward to sharing more as the project progresses.
