We have a wide range of retail design solutions which will satisfy and maximise your requirements.

The success of any project begins with a brief that understands and reflects your needs/ requirements. We have a long track record of working with retailers and landlords where the priorities are time/programme and cost. We understand the value of retail space and the importance of maximising all the available floor area. If you are a property owner or landlord, we can work with you on your new build or strip out an existing retail unit to ensure we utilise the building’s potential by achieving the maximum rentable floor area (NIA/GIA). Working with you through the design brief and familiarising ourselves with your goals, we’ll ensure your project achieves all your expectations and objectives.

We develop schemes which can be produced within a minimum time to allow the building to be ready for letting or re-letting. We work with you to ensure the process runs smoothly.

Our expertise in fully incorporating budget restraints, structure, services, Health and Safety etc from the early stages of the project, enables us to deliver designs that are not only architecturally successful but also the most economical and efficient design solutions.

We offer a full architectural design package from building inception through to completion, covering all RIBA work stages. This begins with feasibility and concept design, to planning and building regulations approved drawings with specifications ready for tender/construction. This is also complemented (if required) by contract administration services which includes site inspections and monitoring the build on site to ensure the contractor is building in compliance to the approved construction drawings, specifications and the building contract.

We are always improving our knowledge of building processes, tackling sustainability and energy conservation strategies to ensure your building complies with the latest regulations and required performances. We always aim to deliver projects which allow your building to have minimum environmental impact and cost.
