Since 2016, we have successfully delivered over 150,000 sqft of retail space for leading retailer, Marks and Spencer. The stores have been located across the UK and Ireland and include a combination of new and refurbishment projects, with many involving live working environments within busy shopping centres and logistic restrictions. Most recently, we are playing our part in the company's far-reaching plan to protect the magic of M&S, with the transformation of the Abbeycentre Foodhall, offering customers a brand new look and feel.
Phase one at the Abbeycentre has been designed with the "mind of a supermarket and the soul of a fresh market". The Abbeycentre is one of three and the first in Ireland to benefit from the new design concept centred around renewal.
We increased the store's floor-space by almost 6,000 sqft creating a more contemporary modern look.
A large feature is the in-store bakery which doubled in size, a grocery area designed to shine a light on fresh and seasonal produce and an enhanced freezer space to ensure there is a place for new product developments including frozen herbs and onions.
In-line with Marks and Spencer's wider plastic reduction plan, the store now boasts a range of features to help customers reduce, reuse and recycle plastic, including an increase in loose fresh produce and a free water re-fill station.
Phase two of the project will include a complete refurbishment to clothing areas.
