We worked with Easy Living Furniture, converting empty shell retail units into suitable trading environments. The units usually required lining, suspended ceilings, mezzanine floors including additional fire escapes and the provision of disabled elevators, mechanical and electrical work such as air conditioning, lighting and data, back of store facilities and design and installation of room-sets, walkways and display areas.
Their Southampton store was a particular challenge as we were tasked to revisit this location with a view to retrospectively installing an urgently required, mezzanine into an existing high trading store at Hedge End retail-park.
After an initial planning application was turned down, some investigative work and consultation with local authorities led to overturning this decision. We were able to design and install a new floor above the existing ground floor trading area, keeping the fitments and sales displays intact.
