Engineering company fuels Asda

The Premier Group, the UK’s largest independent fuel engineering company, has completed its first project as part of its new contract with Asda.

The Swansea-based construction division of The Premier Group was appointed to build a new four pump, card only petrol filling station at the Asda East Retford store in Nottinghamshire, its first of a multi-site project for the supermarket chain.

The scope of works at the East Retford site included the construction of a fully automated petrol filling station in the area of an existing unsurfaced car park. The work undertaken included construction of four lots of four pumps with two 55,000 litre fuel storage tanks, decorative landscaping works, plus a new car park and pedestrian crossing.

In addition to projects in England, the Asda framework will see The Premier Group working closer to home with sites located in south Wales. The scope of work for the Welsh projects includes the construction of four pump automated petrol filling stations with associated landscaping and car parking area.

Construction division managing director Steve Evans, said: “Building a working relationship with Asda for specialist construction work adds to a strong portfolio of clients for the company, which includes Esso (Synergy Fuel programme rebranding) Shell, BP, MRH and Rontec.
