Retail unit design and construction

The client required a retail unit to be constructed on an area recently purchased.   Following several discussions we developed a clear understanding on what they required.   This involved selecting and creating a design team for the project from conception through to completion.  Once our design team were appointed including principle designer, architect, structural engineer, M&E engineer and quantity surveyor, planning approval was obtained and after several layout options had been proposed a feasibility study was carried out prior to finalising a warrant submission.
