About: Waterstones aims to be the leading bookseller both on the high street and internet. Trading from nearly 300 shops, they strive to create customer-friendly environments where people can go to browse the best titles.
Needs: Within their re-branding programme, Waterstones took the opportunity to undertake some required remedial works. A flexible approach was required to ensure the shop-floor remained operational at all times.
