Experts & Retail Intelligence
Whether it’s developing space for retail or F&B use, we know what occupiers need operationally and we are usually brought in at a pre planning stage to advise on feasibility of such matters as deliveries and servicing management, utilities and M&E specification, optimal site and unit configuration, planning and licensing (F&B).
We are an experienced and niche practice providing thoughtful and reliable advice as part of the team of consultants including architects, planners, quantity surveyors and project managers that helps guide the development process seamlessly from conception through to PC, opening and beyond.
