Retail

Retail clients face challenging programmes with demanding market expectations, tight commercial constraints and increasing sustainability targets. The retail industry is constantly evolving because of new ways to shop. The increase of internet and mobile sales, click and collect points, high street banks, digital supermarkets and the need to increase convenience for consumers means that retailers have had to change the way they do business – physically in stores and digitally.

It's our job to deliver results and improve your performance, increase efficiencies and carry out your visions and aspirations. Today, in a world where space is expensive and technology is rapidly developing, we want to help you reach your customers, wherever they live, whatever their age and however they shop.

Whether your customers shop on the high street, visit luxury flagship stores or shop on their phone, we can help you enhance your performance and strengthen your market position. From constructing your fit out to providing consultancy services, we can add value to your project.

Over the past decade we have successfully delivered more than 8,000 retail projects and provided a unique joined up approach for construction related projects.

What we offer

We understand retail and the way customers are always changing. By providing a wide variety of services from construction delivery, programme management, due diligence to sustainability and building surveying, it allows us to impact and bring the right expertise to your project.

We can create an unforgettable experience for shoppers or make it more convenient for them to consume goods - it all depends on our clients' needs. Tell us about your requirements and goals and we can turn them into tangible success stories.

Retail know how

Whether it's working with a large supermarket brand to ensure its future vision and goals, or luxury retailers wanting to create an innovative and modern flagship store, we have the experience and collaborative style needed to meet your needs. We have worked for many high profile retail clients, such as famous jeweller Tiffany & Co, sports leader Adidas, luxury fashion retailer Reiss, supermarket Sainsbury's, and John Lewis, Metrobank and entire shopping centres just to name a few.

Shopping all over the world

With project teams based all around the world, we can service clients globally ensuring a consistent finish for all of our projects. We also provide a regional approach, taking projects from inception through the development process to provide the most efficient delivery programme.

Getting robust with your budget

We work closely with our clients on a day to day basis to achieve the desired look within a tight budget. Our team can establish a robust cost management process within the constraints of the project and eliminate inefficiencies to ultimately deliver bottom line cost savings. We also provide preconstruction cost advice to ensure budget planning for piece of mind.

A regional service

Our Leeds office has a strong regional presence, working with repeat national clients such as retail giants John Lewis and Primark. Currently, our fit out team is heavily involved in projects for both these clients in Leeds and Birmingham, providing construction and fit out services for their new stores.

Our fit out service paired with our consultancy expertise provides a bespoke service offer that responds directly to our customers’ needs and ensures the right people are involved at every step along the way. Previously our construction and consultancy teams have come together to work on projects for ASDA and Metrobank, showing collaboration and team work.

Ensuring uptime

We are used to working on projects with tight programmes in order to minimise any loss of trade for our clients. When necessary we work around the main contractor and close the store for as little time as possible. We have also managed the opening of ‘pop up’ stores to enable continual trading over any close down period.

Entire retail development cycle

We offer to look after your entire retail development programme, from initial engagement with retailers, assisting in ensuring compliant bids are received, to concept and detailed design phases and prestart and fit out, ensuring teams are fully briefed and prepared. We also coordinate commissioning and ensure stores are safe to hand over to retail operations teams for stocking and readiness for trade.
