1.0 GENERAL INFORMATION & PRELIMINARIES

1.1 INTRODUCTION
This specification including attachments is a binding part of a Lease Contract or a
Construction Contract between Lidl and a contracting partner.

This store specification is a Performance Specification document to be used by the


Design Team along with the site particular information in designing a site specific solution.
The Design Team may be either employed:
- Directly by Lidl (Traditional method of Procurement)

In either case, this document details the general performance parameters together with
the detailed finish requirements that the development must conform with.

All requirements described herein must be provided within the scope of the relevant
contract for the contracted sum.

All references to Lidl shall be interpreted as Lidl UK GmbH unless clearly specified as
otherwise, no alternative to Lidl approved suppliers / products / sub-contractors will be
considered or accepted.

Unless otherwise instructed in writing by the Lidl Senior Consultant Construction (SCC),
the development must be designed in full accordance with the Planning Permission,
Building Regulations and Performance Specifications.

All services, which have been described in this specification, must be provided
within the framework of the relevant agreements by the Lessor / Contractor /
Developer at his own expense, with respect to the agreement or by the instructed
specialist company.
