Fast-growing retail fit out company Thornton Project Solutions has won another retail fit out contract, a fast-track fit out to both design and build the first sandwich bar for “Create It Yourself” in the prestigious Bridgewater Place, Leeds.
Create is a completely new concept based around good eating, through freshness, choice and speed. Using self-serve chiller cabinets their customers, typically city workers, will create their own food. The customer is in control and creates the kind of food they want to eat from carefully chosen ingredients. Thornton’s role will be to create the fun and funky setting of their contemporary stores.
Bridgewater Place is Leeds’ tallest landmark and it is in the ground floor of this building that Thornton projects will create a modern, fun and funky eating environment to launch this exciting new concept. Designs have already been approved and work is set to begin in early January. Through their comprehensive design service , and aided by Create Space’s clear vision, Thornton provided 3d visualizations of the retail fit out scheme in advance to make planning and costing the full turnkey fit out solution easier.
The space will comprise stainless steel food preparation areas, refrigerated food display cabinets, modern, funky furniture, graphics and signage to windows, and an attractive lighting scheme. Hygienic laminated coverings will be used and Thornton Projects will also liaise with catering equipment suppliers and project manage the installation and commissioning of this equipment within the overall fit out project. Thornton’s recently acquired joinery shop will also develop a stunning bespoke counter installation.
Gary King- Managing Director for Thornton Projects commented: “Create” is a young ambitious entrepreneurial company and we look forward to helping them roll out their exiting concept throughout the country during 2008 and beyond. At Thornton’s we pride ourselves on our high quality finish, modern design and cutting edge materials and we are always keen to work on forward-thinking and innovative projects like this."
Following completion of the Leeds outlet early in 2008, roll out of the Create project is planned to continue by the opening of an additional larger 1,500 sq ft retail outlet in Liverpool in March 2008. “We are a highly experienced interior fit out team and aim to provide the very best project management services,” commented Steve Powell, Operations Director for Thornton Projects.
“It’s a testament to our client’s confidence in our project management skills that they trust us to complete this project for them so quickly.”
