The successful integration of retail and leisure in transport hubs can greatly enhance the passenger experience. Our transport expertise allows us to seamlessly blend commercial offers while balancing the often competing operational aspirations of transport hubs of all kinds.
Our retail projects often draw on both our transport and heritage expertise as demonstrated by our work at the former Waterloo International Terminal, Brunel’s Grade I listed MacMillan House at Paddington and Fenchurch Street Station. All sensitively combine high-quality retail schemes while celebrating the unique character of each.
We are also excited by advances in e-commerce and our RetailFutures group explores the ever-changing opportunities digital technology is bringing to physical retail environments. Recent research has explored how a mixed-reality virtual retail experience could provide early revenue for a scheme during phased delivery.
