Writing new scripts for different kinds of retail outlet
Having worked on many Ikea sites over the years, we know that not every store is built the same. From Glasgow to Southampton and everywhere in-between, we have been involved in the construction of new stores and the refurbishment of existing ones. Each project poses its own unique challenges, requiring us to devise our own unique solutions.
One of the more challenging projects was the construction of a new outlet in Southampton. Unusually for Ikea, it is located in the city centre which means it is built on a smaller plot than other stores. Bordering onto a busy dual carriageway, space for our installation team to work on the outside of the building was limited. With a little creativity, we devised an innovative system to install cladding wall panels and glazing in a tight space. This meant we were able to complete all work, including the installation of the roof, ahead of schedule.
