planning makes the project
Weaver Commercial Contractor (WCC) works closely with you to establish what you need for today and for the future, looking toward the potential growth of your business. Successful retail design, construction and buildout require a balance between the practical (profitability and sales per square foot) with the experiential (so people stay longer when they visit and return regularly).
From “ground-up” retail construction to renovation to store expansion, whether standalone space or a multi-tenant development, we consider all aspects of the facility’s use and explore potential cost-saving alternatives to find the most value for you. And, we take the time to listen to what matters most.
WCC - experienced for all sizes and types of retail projects
For over 20 years, we’ve specialized in regional, small-to-medium outlot retail spaces, most often for independent companies. Our areas of expertise and capabilities in the retail market include Shopping centers, Restaurants/hospitality, Mixed-use facilities, Interior fit-outs, Renovations and expansions, Tenant coordination, Furniture, accessories procurement, and installations.
We can help you revitalize while avoiding operational disruption
There is a movement away from traditional expansion in favor of revitalization. WCC will assist in determining and navigating these enhancement strategies. Upgrades can present challenges we can ease, from help with regulatory issues such as strict energy codes or tear-down restraint to identifying hardships that can result in tax abatements. For renovation projects, we take measures that will both benefit owners and their customers:
Sensible phasing plans that progress renovations logically
Pedestrian walkways that keep patrons on safe pathways
Tunnels through construction zones
Work hours that minimize disruption to store operations
Sustainable systems to reduce long-term maintenance and energy costs
Space that maximizes displays
Lighting that enhances merchandise presentation
We help you to identify potentially costly issues before negotiating building or property purchases.
We’re ready for the next generation of retail, augmenting historical space and creating destinational experiences
Today’s retailers know that the competitive landscape has changed quickly and drastically. WCC can help you meet the latest trends with affordability and efficiency.
Building around historical structures or within a historic context appeals to customers who increasingly crave authenticity and respect for local heritage. We’ll navigate relevant requirements and codes dealing with such structures, as well as Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance, all while ensuring that your design honors tradition without being stuck in the past. Shopping and dining experiences must now be “special,” engaging customers today to bring them back tomorrow. Together, we’ll view your space beyond displaying the maximum amount of product or seating, instead, creating a comfortable and involving experience. How we accomplish this include adding amenities that make your retail space a destination that’s relaxed and welcoming; sourcing materials and furnishings from the community; and educating shoppers about product origins and seasonal offerings.
It starts with your needs … and it ends with a vision for the future.
We ask the right questions
You and your business are the focus, because communication is the key to the most successful projects. When we understand what you’re thinking, we strivet to not only meet, but to exceed all expectations.
ORGANIZATION AND FORESIGHT OPTIMIZE SPEED TO MARKET.
As retailing becomes increasingly competitive, we must address a project’s duration up front, while proactively facilitating progress. The more we work together to systematically plan ahead and organize processes to build in flexibility, the more we can save on the project in the end.
To ensure you get what you need for project efficiency, all decisions are made together and communication is constant. We aim to learn as much as possible about what you’ll do and how you’ll do it, from the first moment throughout the process — from design and planning into construction.
That intense concentration uncovers the needs and what’s behind them, and this discovery happens together with the owner or retail management representatives.
