Engineering is crucial to the success of the retail formula. It is the essential link between the design and execution phase. In this phase materials and production techniques are determined. In addition, we need to consider packaging, transportation, installation and maintenance in order to establish the budget.
Successful concept engineering combines a sound sense of the design with knowledge of production techniques, logistics and installation, while also considering post installation maintenance.
It is this phase in particular where our 20 year experience is able to make the difference. From flagship stores in the world capitals to outlet stores in the country, suburban concept stores to department store shop-in-shops, you will find them in our portfolio.
Depending on material choice, production techniques, design and quantity, we determine whether production should take place with our preferred vendors in Europe or in Asia.
The installation of the store interior can be done with our own team or we can work with the installation team of the shop fitter. Should you have your own preferred production vendor we will include them as part of the team.
Often store maintenance is not considered fully when a concept is developed.
We think it very important that the store looks as good a year after opening as it did on opening day. Naturally wear and tear means that elements need to be repaired or replaced. By taking this into account during the engineering phase, such tasks will be easy to carry out and the desired quality can be maintained.
