From individual shops and specialist stores to shopping centers: Carefully planned and executed retail projects add value to city centers. And sustainable shopping centers - as so-called Green Buildings - are becoming increasingly attractive. Another issue of importance to an ever-greater number of retailers is building operation costs. So it is becoming increasingly important to develop solutions to reduce energy and operating costs.
Ensuring the profitability of shopping centers requires experts who know the numerous challenges faced by the industry. Multichannel concepts are needed to combat price dumping in online trade. Retail space that is part of these strategies must be suitably attractive. This applies to features including the architectural design of shopping centers, signage, and parking.
Depending on the project goal, operators, developers, investors and retailers will need professional support. Drees & Sommer consultants, site managers and controllers have the necessary expertise and experience from over 500 successfully completed projects in the retail sector.
