IMB Contracts (Display World Holdings) - Specsavers Winton
Specsavers Opticians and Hearcare – 411 Wimborne Road Winton Bournemouth
Our mission was to convert this shell into a high specification optical & hear care retailer on behalf of the market leaders Specsavers.
The project commenced on the 30th of October 2018. The existing unit was stripped back to a bare shell by the landlord. The floor had to be screeded & extensively laytexed to an acceptable standard, to accept a vinyl wood effect plank & carpet tile.
All perimeter walls were lined with a back board and plasterboard to the face. The pre-test, rooms were constructed with an insulated metal stud, over boarded with backing board and plasterboard. In addition, the hear care test rooms were over boarded with 2 layers of sound blocking plasterboard to both sides of the partition and resilient bars. Self-sealing doors were also fitted.
A sound absorbent suspended ceiling was installed with 300mm of insulation above. During the build all plumbing, electrics, data and air conditioning were installed. All joinery in the retail area was spray finished. Back of house included fitting of a staff restroom and kitchen. A toilet and accessible toilet were fitted to the rear of the premises including Specsavers free issue unitary items which were fitted to the client’s specifications. The flooring, canvasses and decorations were completed for a successful handover on 8th December 2017. The works received the following comment:
