£6m Flagship Next Store for Norwich…


A. C. Bacon Engineering Ltd is pleased to have fabricated and erected 300 tonnes of structural steelwork plus nearly 4 miles of cold-rolled sections for one of R. G. Carter’s newest flagship projects.

The 6,663m2 superstore is built over two floors and will feature the entire Next range; along with clothes it will also offer kitchens, bathrooms, carpets and DIY products with a separate outdoors area for gardening equipment. The plans also include for a Café. 156 new jobs will be created on top of the 48 staff that will transfer from the current Next Home on the nearby Longwater Retail Park.


After much deliberation the controversial Next superstore was given the green light in April 2014. The £6m superstore is being built adjacent to the Longwater Retail Park in Costessey after considering more than 21 sites for the project.
