A Comprehensive Sustainable Design Service

Standard Design Approach

What is the best look and feel?

Can it carry sufficient merchandise?

Is the branding effective?

Is it ergonomically correct?

Is it functionally suitable & durable?
(can lead to over-engineering and excessive material usage)

Is it within budget?

Whole-life Design Approach

Additional Considerations:

Can we use some or all of the existing fixtures?

Can we reuse the existing chassis or any individual components?

How can we extend the life of the new unit?

Are there alternative, more sustainable materials available?

What is the carbon impact of our selection?

Does the design optimise materials using and minimise waste?

What is the impact on transport and installation?

How can the design aid the unit's deconstruction and disposal?

Will there be revenue opportunities which can offset the demise process costs?

Aside from business ethos, the case for utilising more sustainable retail fixtures is compelling, and we can provide specialist support at all stages of the design and trial process.
