SECTORS

RETAIL

Retail is an increasingly change driven market-place. Shifting consumer behaviours, experience driven trends and the transition to a digital economy are all driving the need to re-think retail.

In this ever-changing retail landscape, we are increasingly delivering transformations of larger real estate-based assets, space optimisation projects and mixed-use developments.

We focus on helping to drive innovative solutions, delivering transformational schemes and driving best value.

Readying retail for any future

Experience is everything

As customer trends continue to evolve, the retail sector has shifted seismically leading to the repurposing of city centres, bricks and mortar shops and the surge in online retailers. Our retail clients face the challenge of optimising the experience, the enjoyment, the footfall, and driving revenue. The sector is responding and changing how retail operates physically, through the creation of destination centres as well as digitally, through highly efficient and focused online retail services.

Harnessing the power of technology

From drone deliveries to automated warehouses, facial recognition to mobile wallets, technology is reshaping retail. Technology may be a disruptor, but it is also breathing new life into bricks-and-mortar retail. At RLB, our investment in digitisation, mobile data collection and analysis tools – like the RLB Field app and RLB Focus – have accelerated the speed, accuracy and productivity of our retail projects too.

Bringing certainty in uncertain times

We bring detailed knowledge and broad experience of delivering national and international store rollout programmes, new-build developments and refurbishments over the last 25 years.
Our team of 360 global retail experts deliver property portfolio insight and develop and deliver programmes of work focused on maximising trading weeks, bringing certainty to projects and adding value.
