Aurora Contractors was the General Contractor for the new Super Stop & Shop on Richmond
Avenue in Staten Island, New York. The contract required the store to be constructed
within an active shopping center.
The project proved challenging for numerous reasons. For example, there was extraordinary
site conditions, namely extensive and constant dewatering. Another challenge was
coordinating all of the owner supplied equipment from Stop & Shop’s national accounts.
Every national retail company provides numerous items directly to a project. This
is especially true when constructing a supermarket.
Our experienced superintendents and project managers understand coordination is
critical. In developing the schedule for the project, critical path elements were
assigned to long lead items and they were monitored closely, to ensure that they
did not adversely impact the timely completion of the project.
Aurora was also contracted by Stop & Shop to perform the renovation of the Holbrook
Stop & Shop location. The contract called for an open store renovation of the 75,000
square feet supermarket. The project included a complete upgrade of the entire store,
including the relocation and upgrade of every case and department in the store,
and phased relocation of the meat and product storage and prep areas, in order to
limit each department’s down time to one day.
