Roll-out of Audiology and Optician Stores


Completed: January, 1970

Service: Architecture

Sector: Retail

Client: Specsavers

This project for Self saw the national rollout of Audiology & Opticians stores throughout the UK for new acquisitions, re-branding & expansions.

Following a dimensional survey, the team prepared a planning application for signage and mechanical plant; going on to prepare detailed working drawings to the Specsavers Brand Standards. Later submission of the Building Regulations application followed.

This project required a high level of liaison with the client and other consultants, during which over 50 fast-track projects were delivered and the practice has been retained to deliver future projects on the framework.

Benefits Delivered to the Client

A thorough understanding of the brand standards allowed Self Architects to optimise both costs and programme for each store. Regular and diligent interaction with the client put us in a strong position to advise on value engineering options for the projects.
