According to this story:
The new store is going to be about 3,000 square meters larger than what's there now.
There probably will be fairly little waste. You can be sure all the structural steel will be recycled, and the old floor slab will wind up as reclaimed aggregate.
This is no more than a guess, but 20 years is about the lifespan for the flat roof on one of those sorts of buildings before it starts leaking. If they wanted a larger store anyway the cost of doing a re-roof on the existing building might have pushed the numbers over the top.
