Sector Overview

Retail. Keeping our economy moving

Retail construction and refurbishment projects are often time-sensitive, with tight deadlines that must be met to avoid disruption to the client’s business. Whether this is retail storage and distribution facilities or retail stores, this requires careful planning and coordination to ensure that the project is completed on time, while maintaining high-quality standards.

The construction of retail facilities encompasses a wide range of aesthetic treatments and construction methodologies perfectly suited to Glencar’s flexible approach and wide-ranging experience.

Our collaborative approach through early design involvement, engineering expertise and integrated delivery drives value into every project and programme, ensuring that we deliver high quality and efficient facilities that have been newly built or fully refurbished.

Retail Storage & Distribution

Glencar has extensive experience in the delivery of technologically advanced fulfillment and logistics hubs for the online retail sector.

As a contractor of choice for some of the UK’s leading online businesses, our design and build service encompasses engineering expertise and integrated delivery to ensure that projects are completed safely and sustainably, to exacting time, cost and quality standards.

Retail Stores

Retail construction projects have the ability to cause significant disruption to the customer’s business unless well managed.

Glencar works closely with all stakeholders to minimise disruption, working in challenging live environments, coordinating work outside of business hours, and implementing noise and dust reduction measures.

Retail construction and refurbishment projects also require extensive health and safety measures to protect employees, subcontractors and the public, particularly when working in live environments.

Retail Fit-Out & Automation

Retail warehouse automation projects involve the implementation of advanced technologies to improve productivity.

Glencar Construction has experience in delivering these types of fit-out projects, working with clients to develop customised solutions that meet their specific needs.

This can include the installation of automated conveyor systems, robotics, and advanced software solutions.
