University of St Andrews

Retail Shop, St Andrews

Established in 1413 The University of St Andrews is one of the most prestigious education establishments with a worldwide recognition.

We were proud to be chosen to design and fit out their Retail Store in St Andrews. The brief was to harness the heritage and brand to drive sales growth, increase customer fall and dwell time.

Within the existing space we were tasked with creating a bright and flexible retail environment. With a tight budget and time scale which was a mid November appointment with completion at the end of January for the students return and including a Xmas shutdown period.

Working closely with the retail team we developed our ideas and concepts. Our vision was to base the whole scheme on a flexible retail system which could be changed to suit the seasonal merchandise and incorporate interchangeable mid floor displays and gondolas. The use of colour, branding and graphics brought the scheme together.

With a cosmopolitan audience speaking thirty languages we had to make sure that everything was clear, visible and could accommodate merchandise varying from gowns and apparel to stationery and cufflinks.

The site installation was coordinated with the University estates team and involved a full strip out, electrical and data supplies, decoration and the design, manufacture and installation of bespoke fixtures, fittings and graphics.

The project was handed over on time, on budget and the client is very satisfied and will recommend us for future projects.
