Lea Hough’s Commercial Property team are pleased to have recently assisted Clintons Cards with the opening of a new store in Manchester’s Trafford Centre.

We worked closely with the Estates Team at Clintons Cards to assist with the re-modelling and shop-fit of the store, prior to it becoming a card shop.

Our role involved:

  • Carrying out a detailed measured survey
  • Preparing existing plans, elevations and section drawings of the existing shop unit
  • Developing feasibility/proposed layouts for the adaptation of the store into a new card shop, to suit Clintons’ requirements
  • We then developed the drawings further into a detailed set of Building Regulations drawings, to show all technical / construction details
  • Submitting an application for Building Regulations to Trafford Council, liaising with the Building Control Officers
  • Providing technical advice and guidance to our client, with regard to construction details, structural issues, fire safety, means of escape routes, compartmentation and general fit-out of the shop
  • Whilst contractors were on site, we also carried out site visits and liaised with the client

Lea Hough are pleased to have worked together with Clintons Cards on this brand new store, and we look forward to continuing to work with Clintons on the fit-out of other stores in the future.

Should any retailers or commercial clients require similar assistance with drawings, Building Regulations submissions, fit-out and alteration of shop premises in Lancashire, Greater Manchester, Cumbria, then we would be glad to assist.
