Baobab Collection 16 weeks Building & Measured Survey, Procurement, Management
Baobab Collection are an exclusive international lifestyle brand. Based in Belgium Baobab export their products internationally. Having successfully sold their products through high-end retailers in the UK including Harrods, they sought to open up their own boutique in Walton Street.
Calsurv were involved throughout the initial lease negotiations and final fit out. We carried out a building survey of the property prior to lease signing and found a number of defects which were made good at the landlords expense. Our client was also able to use our findings to extend their lease free period.
Our detailed measured survey of the building was subsequently used by Baobab's designers in Belgium and the Far East to produce bespoke joinery. Due to the high accuracy of the drawings the furniture fitted perfectly, and the final store fit out met perfectly with the client's initial vision.
Calsurv managed the UK based team, producing schedules of work and carrying out negotiations with our approved contractors on behalf of our client. We acted as the Contract Administrators for the works which were delivered to an exceptionally high standard befitting the quality of the products on display in this exclusive store.
