Consultant Gleeds appointed to £20m O2 store refit scheme

Consultant Gleeds has been appointed to provide a raft of services including cost and project management, on phase two of a £20 million store refit for O2 Telefonica.

The refit programme for the Spanish owned mobile phone giant will eventually bring about the re-branding of over 100 new-style mobile phones stores all over the UK.

Having completed a first phase of thirty stores, O2 now uses Gleeds in all of its rebranding, acquisition, franchise and refit programmes.

O2 Telefonica’s property manager Gerry Breen said: “In the first phase of this important re-fit programme Gleeds have always risen to the challenge posed by our aggressive time, cost and quality demands and we therefore have no hesitation in re-appointing them on the basis of their professionalism and commitment.”

Gleeds is providing a range of retail roll out consultancy services including project management, cost consultancy, programme management, building surveying and CDM as well as health and safety advice.

The new stores span a range of designs from small kiosk’s to large flagship premises and will include guru phone bars.

Fit out contracts have been awarded to Bridgfords, D&A Withey, Bedford and Havenhand, Paragon, Cumberland, and I.M.B.
