Founded in 1992 The Perfume Shop is now the UK’s largest specialist fragrance retailer. In the mid to late 1990’s we prepared the designs and building regulation submissions for over 40 shops located around the UK including those located in the Bluewater Shopping Centre, and the Trafford Centre, Manchester. This required a detailed insight of our client’s requirements and an understanding of how to exploit to the full the spaces available in terms of attracting customers and displaying merchandise, as well as the more mundane functional demands such as providing adequate storage and ancillary facilities.
Commercial pressures dictate that retail units are fitted out and trading without delay. As such these projects required a swift response and a detailed knowledge of the building regulations and other statutory requirements, as well as the ability to foster a good working relationship with the client and a variety of shop fitters to ensure a smooth passage through the design and construction phase.
