Working with Next Design on a new store concept required the design concept to be very closely scrutinised at every step.
The very highest standards were set for every detail of the building.
The bespoke Next limestone aerolite cladding materials had a 16-week lead time with little tolerance for delays.
As always with retail, delay is not an option. The opening date is set before long before building works have started and is critical for the opening.
A2O ensured that all design elements were discussed in detail in a timely way with Next Design.
A2O supplied samples of all materials and finishes before works commenced.
A2O provided tracking numbers whilst the limestone was on its 6-week sea voyage to the UK. This allowed the main contractor to give Next assurance on material arrival dates.
A2O pushed hard to get the building handed over six weeks ahead of schedule.
