Engineering for retail requires a genuine understanding of the industry – and a firm grip of commercial realities. We’ve been delivering cost-effective, efficient, flexible retail designs for decades, helping to create retail spaces that find the right balance of form and function.
Holmes Consulting has worked on small to mid-sized regional shopping centres like Bayfair in Mount Maunganui, right up to mega developments like The Base in Hamilton. We’ve also delivered a number of Warehouse designs across the country, playing our part in the ongoing rise of this iconic Kiwi brand. Our clients enjoy our pragmatism and creativity, and – perhaps most of all – our ability to quickly identify and capitalise on opportunities to reduce costs and streamline construction.
Retail is an ever-changing environment, demanding flexibility in designs to ensure facilities can be adapted for future needs and uses. We’re experts at putting together grid systems that are readily altered, minimising down time in construction to ensure retailers don’t take too much of a hit. While our designs are flexible, our approach is, too: we know that the requirements of retail clients can change day-to-day, even when the project is well along the path. We’re adept at changing direction when we have to, modifying designs and solving problems with a minimum of fuss.
Retail is one of the most vibrant, exciting spaces to design for. We love delivering on the challenge – creating compelling, robust, functional structures that stand the test of time, as well as meeting their commercial objectives.
