We have a longstanding relationship with WHSmith – lasting 17 years – during this time we have supplied numerous joinery products for their portfolio of stores. The WHSmith Gatwick and Heathrow airports airside stores is one such example where we were briefed on designing and installing these “Stores of the Future”.
What we did
We supplied airside stores of the future to the full specification of the client. The projects were 4 week internal fit-outs where Zero Point 8 supplied all fire rated joinery to the highest standards and within the project timeline. We worked under a design and build JCT contract with WHSmith and held close coordination meetings with client and airport teams to sign off the design in line with airport guidelines and specifications.
A real store of the future – the next generation of WHSmith airside stores. We believe that we captured the essence of the WHSmith vision – down to each finish. This is a store that allows for heavy footfall within a major global airport, meeting airport guidelines, all while creating a new standard of store that continues to be implemented to this day.
