Triple win for Triplar at Westfield Stratford City

Retail display and shop fitting specialist Triplar celebrated the launch of three new stores at the recently completed Westfield Stratford City shopping centre.

The 24-strong company finished new stores totalling nearly 400 sq m for bootmaker Dr Martens, men’s tailoring brand Frencheye and fashion retailer Jeans West’s new outlet ahead of Westfield’s opening.

Triplar, which counts Nike, Dr Martens, Nokia, Levi Strauss and Lush among its clients, worked intensively on the three varied projects in the run-up to the launch on Europe’s biggest urban shopping destination.

Works for Dr Martens and Frencheye included building a number of furniture items at Triplar’s production facility, including cash desks, gondolas, freestanding unitary units and mirrors.

Triplar MD Tim Rodwell said: “The buzz and excitement surrounding the launch of Westfield has been phenomenal, it’s not very often that you get the opportunity to work on three stores in a development of this scale.

“With contractors covering every square inch on-site to ensure their stores open on time, we’ve had to ensure our approach is joined up and all aspects of the supply chain work like clockwork.”

Triplar’s work on the Frencheye store involved a full shop fit; encompassing all mechanical and electrical works, decoration, manufacture and installation of all furniture, and fitting of the shop front and glazing. The team also provided a turnkey fit-out for Dr Martens and installed everything but the furniture and fittings for Jeans West.

Shamim Hyder is a director of Jeans West, which stocks Levi’s and G-Star. He said: “This project ran very late in the concept planning stage and we only had four weeks to build, merchandise and open the store. A lot of people were doubtful if it could be achieved in this time scale.

“We were assured by Triplar that they could deliver the store on time. Having worked with them in the past we had complete confidence in their planning and execution of this complex project. Completed on a tight deadline, we are very happy with the high standard of finish in-store.”
