SPACE PLANNING, FLOORING & RAISED FLOOR ACCESS

Our team of Project Managers bring new ideas to life with the latest drawing software including 2D and 3D imagery. By investing in space planning our clients can re-use their existing space in a more efficient way giving them further space to grow without the need for undertaking refurbishment or fit outs as part of a relocation project. For either a refurbishment or a fit out project our team will look at how your retail space is currently used and how space is given over to specific operational activities.

 

SPACE PLANNING

If you are planning a new fit out project our Project Managers can produce a vibrant new space which will improve teamwork and collaboration, increase productivity dramatically reduce or remove unused or wasted space, create dynamic, energising workspaces that spark creativity, reinvigorate staff and boost morale.

When designing a retail environment it’s important to think about the path your client wants a customer to take.  A properly designed retail store interior will allow a customer to flow effortlessly through the store, past end caps filled with featured products. This is why selection of retail flooring is key.

Raised Floor Advantages

  • The ease access to the building installations from any place at the raised floor.
  • Power, energy, communication and data base systems can be housed at the plenum.
  • Tiles allow changes in the distribution of the areas at the building according to the customer needs.
  • The possibility of raising the system over a metre allows the levelling of the rooms at different heights.
  • Any distribution of working posts in open areas is allowed, thanks to the use of built-in connection boxes at the flooring without the need of a wall.
  • No wires are seen in the room which increases the aesthetic quality.
  • Wiring, air-conditioning equipment installation and the repairing service costs are reduced.

Managing Change

Change is part of every project no matter how clear the initial statement of works stated or how simple the project is. WIKI details a project as the following: “In project management a project consists of a temporary endeavor undertaken to create a unique product, service or result” The Project Manager’s role is, at the beginning of the project, to anticipate any problems or potential areas for change and create plans to deal with them. During the project, our role is to use the skills and techniques mentioned in the previous four points to manage the change effectively.

The Importance of the Retail Floor

Durability in retail flooring is critical. Your retail flooring selection should be able to stand the test of time, not to mention the stress that comes along with hundreds, if not thousands, of customers visiting on a daily basis.

Many retail stores consider ceramic floors for its durability. This decision, however, has proven costly in terms of repairs and maintenance. Luxury vinyl tile far and above outperforms other types of retail flooring. Not only is it more affordable, but it is also easier to maintain and replace.

No other type of retail flooring allows for the versatility to stay on brand, at all times, no matter how often the messaging around that brand changes.

 

 

Understanding Client Needs

Obtaining the full requirements of the customer needs is the first major step in delivering a project. The key element is to make sure that the client’s needs are understood and communicated clearly to the Project Team. Changes can prove costly and time consuming especially when the project is already in full flow. If  all requirements and expectations are fully understood before  any work commences, the project will get off on the right foot and will mitigate risks further down the line.
