Macro Space Planning
Want to maximise your retail space, and in turn reduce wasted product?
We can survey your retail space (no matter the size), measuring the dimensions and adding details about the types of units required. Subsequently, you will have access to the survey of your retail estate, in order to ensure you can keep your plans consistent and up to date. In addition to the creation of CAD plans, a block library will be created, tailored specifically to the units you have available within your store.
We also use AutoCAD or CCM to draw up individual department plans, which involves coordinating with buying and merchandising teams, who are looking for a more consistent plan across their estate of a specific sub-department or category.
Our drawing and CAD planning can go to a micro-level, such as a singular product within a bay. We also work on the following:
- Product Group Performance
- Adjustments on equipment and square footages
- Customer flow and adjacencies
