Footasylum - Dundee, Scotland
Retail Fit-out

New kicks

The Brief

To develop, manufacture and create the new Footasylum store to launch in Dundee based on contractor knowledge.

The Solution

Footasylum instructed TA Knox to complete a full fit-out of their new store in Dundee. We were closely involved from the design stages right through to the store opening, regularly meeting with Footasylum to discuss the design and materials specified and to ensure that the project was ran as efficiently and effectively as possible. This store was completed to a high standard and within budget. We look forward to working with Footasylum on more new sites and refurbishments.

The Result

"I am Head of Operations for Footasylum and responsible for new stores and shopfitting. We have been working with TA Knox since 2008 on a total of 23 new shop fits plus some refits. In this time our trust in Knox has built, and they have become our main contractor on all store projects. We do periodically go to tender to check the value of Knox's work but have continued to remain satisfied with the price and service. Knox's approach to a shop fit has been the key to our ongoing relationship - all shops have been delivered on time and to budget. Inevitably problems do occur - often caused by Footasylum if I'm honest - and to date no problem has proved insurmountable. The fast-paced nature of our business and the varying sizes of our new stores does mean that we are often progressing new fixtures and store design/layout later than is ideal for a shopfit to run smoothly, but Knox have proved very adaptable and resourceful - they understand that a retailer has rent to pay and deadlines to meet, and do go above and beyond their contractual obligations regularly to provide us with what we need. Our most recent shop fit has been an additional store in The Trafford Centre - the strength of our relationship with Knox has meant we were able to achieve the almost-impossible - we moved from agreed Heads of Terms to a trading store within 9 weeks. The shopfit itself was less than 6 weeks, which no one would claim was ideal but does demonstrate that where a deadline needs meeting and Knox commit to it, they will do their utmost to achieve it"
