Last January 28th, the works of the new Alegro Shopping Centre in Setúbal took off. In this first phase, the Auchan group procured the ACE headed by MSF for works amounting to €15 million Euros for carrying out earthworks, retaining walls, foundations and the shopping centre’s structure in reinforced concrete, with an estimated deadline of 16 months.
This renovated shopping complex, with the opening to the public scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2014, will only keep the existing hypermarket. The remaining commercial space will be demolition and completely redone, to provide a much larger offer, more modern and in synch with the new image of the group.
With the completion of this project, the county estimates the creation of 1,500 new jobs, of which a thousand will be direct jobs.
