The Retail & Leisure Sector

Atkinson Peck’s success in the retail and leisure sector has to a large extent been as a result of developing longstanding client relationships over a period of many years.

Our structural engineering expertise in the retail sector encompasses the design of new retail units and shopping complexes (and their associated infrastructure), retail fit out of new developments and refurbishment or alteration of existing stores.

Whilst the greater portion of our new build work has historically been developer led; retail fit out and refurbishment work has generally been driven by the retailer. Given the commercial requirement for the continuation of trade during refurbishment works, we are familiar with the challenges presented by working in restricted environments, including the ability to phase works.

Our leisure projects include new school sports halls and Local Authority leisure centres, fitness centres, dance studios, multi use games areas, swimming pools, hotels and restaurants. In addition to new developments we have also lent our expertise to refurbishment of existing premises.

We are well placed given this experience to deliver multi-million pound mixed use retail and leisure complexes, within tight deadlines. Given legislative requirements to lesson environmental impact of developments, we can also incorporate sustainable solutions into our designs.
