Overview:
 
In 2002 a major fire destroyed the existing Border Village store. This project was initiated to replace that store. The new store was designed to incorporate a more modern sales platforms the client had introduced to other more modern stores. These changes resulted in a more open and easy to navigate sales area, easier sight lines, and a more secure work environment for the sales staff.
 
Approach:
 
Plans for the store tenant improvement were developed while the shell structure was in construction. A list of pre qualified general contractors was developed to engage in a competitive bidding process. The result was a highly competitive proposal both in terms of cost and speed. The entire interior build out of the 8000 SF space was completed in less than 90 days from the notice to proceed. The interior of store was developed as a single level space, with variations in ceiling height and floor color used to define sales areas and direct movement in the space. Varying light levels were used to engage the customer in much the same way.
