Lacoste’s store façade features evenly spaced oak timber laths and distinctive lighting, enticing travellers into for a premium shopping experience. In a project lasting just three-and-a-half weeks, CDM was responsible for the complete rebuild and fit-out, including the build of partition walls, ceilings and floors, in time for the planned opening of Lacoste’s latest store for King Power in Asia.
This followed the completion of six new flagship stores under different luxury environments for 6 luxury brands. In collaboration with SMI Retail as well as airport personnel to create the designs and technical specifications for each unique store, CDM concentrated on aspects such as exceptionally high specifications and artisanal detailing, which were features of the flagship-level stores.
Custom-made lighting systems, bespoke furnishings using a range of high-spec materials from Corian to stainless steel, custom flooring and even sheer fabric ribbons were painstakingly and permanently arranged as part of one Pandora’s façade.Using its teams from Asia and Europe, CDM provided full maintenance and engineering works support alongside local contractors to handle all activities including flooring, painting of partition walls, ceiling, build of shop fronts, manufacturing, shipment, and installation of the fixtures and furniture. CDM also provided direct support to the brands with full inspections of customised furniture at local manufacturers around Asia.
CDM concluded that every store was opened for business on time and on budget.
