The needs of the customer are always at the forefront in both hospitality and retail, and that’s why we offer such a large range of options to help you give your customers the best service possible.

Customer facing options

For restaurants we provide the opportunity to benefit from pop-up bars and seasonal outdoor bars. And across the spectrum of retail needs from stores and retail parks to roadside concessions we have solutions that fit.

We don’t simply mean back-of-house welfare and storage – these are dynamic spaces crafted to enhance the customer experience.

  1. Hospitality

    Busy summer seasons with an influx of visitors give you the chance to make the most of additional bars, cafés, and food outlets so you can maximise your income. Christmas also offers the chance to capitalise on festive drinks and snacks that give a welcome rest for tired shoppers.

    Our flexible hire periods cater to peak seasons or pop-up events, allowing you to adapt effortlessly to the ever-changing demands of the market.

  1. Retail

    Whether it's a new store, a temporary pop-up shop, a retail park facility or a click-and-collect location, our buildings are designed to showcase your brand and create a lasting impression.

  1. Stores

    We can provide wide, open selling spaces through our column-free interiors. With no restrictive columns the result is a seamless, adaptable environment that allows for a flexible internal layout tailored to your specific needs.

    Vinyl wrap options

    You can elevate your brand presence with our vinyl wrap options. Stand out in corporate events or blend seamlessly into specific locations with customised designs. The possibilities are endless, offering a canvas for your creativity and brand expression.

    Bespoke internal fit outs

    Embrace the freedom of customisation with our bespoke internal fit-out options. We understand that one size doesn't fit all, and our structures allow for unique designs that reflect your brand identity. From corporate aesthetics to location-specific themes, we can turn your vision into a reality.

    With our structures boasting maximum ceiling heights of up to 6 metres you can create that sense of airy spaciousness.

Retail Space

Carnoustie Golf Links Pro Shop

As the construction work involved partial demolition of the current site, an interim solution was needed to house Carnoustie’s pro shop, golf services and caddie master.

The new building is such a success, we have a great space for our pro-shop that members and visitors love; we've seen a significant rise in revenue since the move.
