Project Description

Due to relocation to another larger concession within Selfridges, this Manchester Dior concession was moving, and we were instructed to clear the concession and carry out some remedial works to the walls and general layout.

We completed the works over 3 nights (Fri-Sun) carrying out;

  • The stripping out and disposal of all displays, retaining some key items for relocation to other Dior stores
  • Removal of cladded panelling, stripping of columns and signage removal
  • Isolation and removal of associated electrical elements

Due to the nature of the premises being a very busy and operational department store, which was adjoined to the even busier Manchester Arndale Centre shopping facility – our permit application process and administrative tasks had to be very carefully managed.

The logistics also provided challenging circumstances for our waste removal routes, ensuring that we did not disturb other concessions. This required detailed planning and extensive floor protection to be applied.

Our collaboration with other teams, and focused site supervision was key in the safe and successful coordination of these works, ensuring that we minimised disruption to staff and customers, whilst also keeping areas aesthetically unaffected – applying a removing extensive protection measures at the start and end of each working shift.
