At Clements Retail, we value engineering

Our engineers offer technical, material and cost solutions to effectively detail and develop retail fixtures and construction elements that perform and function in a demanding high-usage environment.

Value engineering is incorporated into each step of the project process to deliver ongoing cost savings.

What sets Clements Retail apart

When you work with Clements, we provide the solutions to ensure the smooth running of your project and to this end you will be appointed a dedicated Project Director:

  • They will be responsible for building your team and will have complete day to day responsibility for your entire project including administration, budget control, programme reporting, value engineering and quality control.
  • They will resolve technical issues and creative issues in conjunction with architects or retail designers and manage the ongoing development of fixture production and installation.
  • Your appointed Project Director will bring a vast amount of experience to your project, including extensive experience in approval and management processes whether working in a privately owned stand alone store or within a department store.

Your Project Director will manage every facet of your project including site surveys, production scheduling, manufacturing, construction, logistics, installation, inventory management and reporting.

They will also be responsible for liaison with client appointed contractors such as lighting designers, and will monitor the development of design intent and production drawings.

Being conscious of the need to meet deadlines does not mean we are not adaptable. Project changes are inevitable when dealing with new concepts and any urgent or bespoke requests will be scheduled to run simultaneously with the main programme without impacting on critical dates. We call this way of working, “managing change”.

In addition, Clements has the expertise to outsource other elements of the project mix through a network of long-standing relationships with various sub contractors. Fixture design, lighting plans and M&E are all elements of shop fitting activities where we work closely with retained experts.

Clements is committed to providing high quality products, effective and measurable project management and outstanding customer service. All products, fixtures and specialist fit-out finishes are designed and built to meet – and where appropriate – exceed tender specifications. This includes assurances that we meet and exceed any relevant industry or project specific regulations or standards.

Clements Retail operates an internal quality management system to ensure we deliver consistent high quality. Our Production Director manages a comprehensive development and CAD facility which enables us to value engineer materials and methods of construction throughout the production process in order to achieve the highest return from budget. We offer first class manufacturing facilities where we combine traditional craftsmanship and state of the art technology.

Our health and safety policy sets out our commitment and outlines our approach to effective health and safety management. Our processes and procedures are designed not simply to meet legal requirements but to effectively deliver a healthy, safe and secure working environment for our employees and everyone else who might be affected by our work.

All our products are designed and manufactured to meet current safety and security standards.
