Project story

The homecourt flagship project in Barcelona was Mace’s first appointment with Adidas. Acting as project manager and cost consultant, the project was an exciting and fast moving development to deliver one new, distinctive flagship store from two separate retail units.

The store is in the very heart of Barcelona’s bustling shopping district and located in a 125-year-old building on one of the city’s most prestigious streets. It is surrounded by upmarket retailers, restaurants and residents, all of whom had to be considered as part of the delivery.

We were responsible for finding specific solutions to a number of unique challenges outlined by Adidas. Creating more space for products and displays was an additional requirement. Using the space adjacent to the existing store, the Mace team were able to create a total of 1700sq m of space distributed across two floors.

The project was successfully delivered in a phased approach to take full advantage of the 2014 Christmas trading period. Full launch took place in January 2015.

“Mace supported Adidas as project manager and cost manager in Barcelona to transform two retail units into one flagship store at ground and basement levels, with minimal disruption to adjacent residents and other retailers. Barcelona was a complete success so an excellent case study to use for the Oxford Street Project.”
