Costa Coffee in Glasgow becomes one of the biggest in the UK

Date posted: August 8, 2017

Handing over the keys to the Costa Coffee Cafe at The Fort Shopping Centre in Glasgow proved to be momentous, as the newly opened café became one of the biggest Costa cafes in the UK.

The shell-to-handover project for the Whitbread owned brand took just four weeks and two days to complete the 3,609 square foot, 141 covers café. There had been a Costa at The Fort for some time, but an opportunity came up for the company to relocate within the shopping centre to a much larger unit, and one that offered the option of having an external seating area as well.

Jephsons managed the complete fit out internally and externally, installing the very latest Costa designs throughout.

Jephsons’ Project Manager for The Fort was Mark Betteley, who says the interior fit-out also provided a first for the company “We have been working with Costa now since 2010 but this is the first time we have fitted a “three by three” counter. With the café having so many covers it was important that customers could get served in the usual quick time, which is why we fitted an extended counter with three tills serviced by three coffee machines. The client was really pleased with the project at hand-over and particularly happy that, once again, we handed over a Costa that was snag free, which is a testament to the attention we pay to maintaining high standards of workmanship.”
