In the retail sector, where ‘time to market’ is critical, we take care to understand your objectives so we can respond efficiently and effectively. By undertaking early inspections and surveys, all the site abnormals are understood by the team and factored into the design development. Our experience within logistically complex locations eg. shopping centres or railway stations, allows us to deal with landlords and stakeholders efficiently. We produce a detailed cost plan and programme that sets out exactly what we’re going to do, and then we do exactly that! We have successfully delivered many new and refurbished restaurants, always on time, on budget and to an exceptional quality.

Case studies

Hobbledown Farm

Project: Kidspace Hobbledown
Value: £5.7 million
Duration: 52 weeks

VincentStokes was approached by Kidspace, for whom we had previously delivered two children’s indoor play centres. They had secured a site to convert into a children’s indoor play and outdoor play farm, however they had financial issues with their business case and wanted to start within the month.

We worked with the client pulling together a design/delivery team and clearly identifying the projects objectives. Through a collaborative approach the scheme was value engineered without compromising the client’s concept ideas.

The scheme comprised an extension of an existing barn, to house the internal play area, kitchen and supporting facilities, extensive external landscaping to create animal areas, underground play tunnels and a maze.

VincentStokes coordinated all third-party specialist client direct suppliers, to ensure the project was delivered on time, within the targeted business case and to a great quality.


YO! Sushi

Project: YO! Sushi delivery partnership
Value: £250k - £350k
Duration: 4-6 weeks

In a retail environment, fit-out or refurbishment of a single unit not only needs to be managed in line with the operational requirements of the company concerned but must also take account of surrounding businesses. That's why YO! Sushi has developed such a strong working relationship with VincentStokes for restaurant fit-outs and refurbishments across the UK. Over the past ten years VincentStokes has been the delivery partner to YO! Sushi. We have assisted their design team in standardising certain specifications that have operational advantages, without undermining the brand concept of every restaurant being unique in design.

We interface with the specialist contractors and ensure we programme the works effectively to allow a coordinated approach. We specialise in complex logistical environments and are experienced in interfacing with third parties, for example landlords, their specialist contractors and main contractors.
