JMA have completed retail projects from several hundred square metres up to huge Homemaker Centres exceeding 20,000 m². We have also carried out bespoke design roll outs for national chains, developing consistent and repeatable designs suited to their needs.
With competition increasing between growing numbers of these complexes, there is a requirement to enhance the centre through the quality of the design to attract the passing traffic. Use of colour and interesting masses and forms should be combined with quality and durable landscaping and site works to present an enticing visual picture at a distance, in order to encourage shopping visits.
At JMA, all of these concepts are informed by knowledge of the realities of the construction and cost/m² of this type of project. Time constraints are also crucial – we are always able to move quickly to allow a client to capitalise on a key site or opportunity, with clear analysis and conclusions regarding feasibility and realistic development opportunities.
