Director Guy Moates provides a brief insight into the retail services we offer including retail planning, surveying, visualisation, architecture, brand design and software development. From our first customers Boots and Sainsburys to the wide range of clients we work with today, Guy explains how our services have evolved.
The work of our in-house surveyors and experienced retail space planning teams dovetail together to offer a turnkey solution for our clients.
Our surveyors work across the UK and Europe. Last year alone our surveyors completed 255 surveys in 25 countries. We use the latest survey equipment to produce point cloud visuals of stores, which are then registered to create 3d models of those stores.
We have developed an CAD based retail planning software solution called StoreSpace®. StoreSpace® enables us to take the planning targets for a store and present these within the CAD environment to enable the retail planner to successfully plan a store. Our StoreSpace® solution is now used by many major retailers including Sainsburys, Marks and Spencers, Asda, House of Fraser, Argos and Aurum Holdings.
We can take a store, survey it, plan it and manage the data coming off that plan inside our StoreSpace® software.
We also provide 3d visualisation including photorealistic stills, animations, movies and flythroughs. We are adopting some of the latest gaming technology and exploring visual reality and augmented reality.
Our latest StoreView® technology enables us to stand in a store and use a tablet as window in the future to see what the store is going to look like, as well as what it looks like now.
