Sainsbury’s, Convenience Stores

RG have carried out a number of convenience format stores for Sainsbury’s over the last 10 years and that continues today. Predominately inner city locations these store are always a logistical and management challenge.

The works generally comprise the refurbishment and replacement of existing shop front and store signage with the complete replacement and refurbishment of the sales areas, backup and staff facilities.

Internal fit out to developer shells within mixed use development is also not uncommon requiring construction works including new glazing to the front entrance, with new auto sliding doors and signage.

Internally the units include – new ceiling and floor installations. New mechanical, electrical and refrigeration installation throughout. In the back of house areas new staff kitchen and office/computer areas are constructed in addition to refurbishment of goods in facilities.

Many of the projects are carried out in close proximity to surrounding residential properties, which means liaison with local residents and shop keepers is paramount.
