Retail

Focused on commercial optimisation

We’re a trusted partner for a number of regional and national developers, bringing an extensive knowledge of commercial development throughout the UK. We work on enabling a scheme to be commercially optimised, while also minimising the severity of associated traffic effects.

Maximising trading opportunities

Our in-depth experience of retail developments means we understand the importance of maximising passing trade by acknowledging the relationship between the active retail frontages and the location of the various access points; how these might interact with SuDS drainage solutions or the risk of flooding.

We recognise that retail is a changing sector, and there is a clear need to treat these facilities as ‘places’ in their own right. We therefore draw on our technical expertise in support of wider commercial aspirations, while always being mindful of individual occupier requirements and maintenance

Our in-depth planning support

Whether it’s transport planning or highway design, flood risk or drainage strategies, we understand and plan for the potential pitfalls by taking a lead role in optimising the masterplan process. We support the planning process with diligent and robust evidence, and provide complete, accurate and cost-effective construction designs.
