Shop refurbishment techniques used by some of the UK’s leading retailers are being analysed by a civil engineering researcher. Professor Steven Male is leading a team to benchmark the companies, which include the Halifax, booksellers Borders and fashion chain Arcadia, and construct a best practice guide.
"The retail sector is an important construction client but it is under-researched," said Professor Male. The guide is expected to be published later this year and the research team will then monitor how its recommendations are implemented.
