We can look after all your needs or, if you already have a design partner, we will closely collaborate with them, delivering a seamless service. Our team can co-create, re-create or create from conception.

Brand Experience Fit Out Consulting

The first stage of any project is that we meet with you to understand not just your requirements but what you’d really like to achieve. This allows us to add value to your needs and come up with imaginative and innovative ways to bring your brand to life. As part of this stage, we will show some inspirational projects that we have already done, and relevant projects done by others that we admire. This is an important part of making sure the scope of the project is accurate and of ensuring that all the stakeholders are on board.

Design

We believe that form and function are equally important. The function of what we do is to create brilliant brand experience fit outs, the form is how we do it. First, we come up with creative concepts to meet and exceed your brief and then we work with your team on refinements and enhancements. We bring the concepts to life with 3D and photo-real imagery and visual references. In our experience, this is the best way to make sure that all stakeholders understand and support the project throughout.

We know that the best brand fit outs are those which appeal to multiple senses. So, we design not just for the look – sound and feel also help create a brilliant brand environment. We use digital technologies to add film, motion graphics and sound. And we use tactile elements extensively, especially natural and sustainably sourced materials for floors, walls and fixtures. All combining to produce a rich, memorable and multi-sensory experience.

Fit Out

Almost all our projects involve fit out or refurbishment. This is where the vision we have agreed with you is delivered onsite and where the brilliant environment for your brand is built. We are committed to the highest quality craftsmanship at every stage of the process. And we have built exceptional environments for brands and businesses in most sectors, especially in retail, hospitality and office. Again, staying within time and budget and always ensuring the highest environmental and health and safety standards are maintained. We also have extensive experience in working in ‘live’ environments. We place a huge emphasis on neatness and organisation, to allow the day-to-day work to continue with the least disruption possible to staff or customers.

Retail Fit Outs

For retail fit outs, sustainability has become all-important. Consumer expectations of retailers has moved from not compromising the needs of future generations; zero carbon to being carbon negative. We have expertise in sustainable fit outs.

Consumers also expect better brand experiences in store and online. Retail outlets are evolving and now need to combine online elements seamlessly within the retail outlet. Many of the world’s most progressive retailers now consider their stores as places to educate and inform consumers rather than just distribute products. This is why the brand experience needs to be fully integrated with the retail experience. Understanding the consumer relationship with the brand and using the store and online environments to deepen the relationship.

Office Fit Outs

Office environments have also changed enormously in recent years. Staff now expect not just a great working environment but one which meets their needs for wellbeing too. That’s why we design office fit outs to encompass mindfulness and tranquility. We consider the social aspects of working now that most people have hybrid office and home working arrangements. The provision of good, nurturing food has become a vital aspect of most offices. And, of course, the whole office needs to deliver the right brand experience for staff.

Construction

Construction

We have vast experience of running construction projects, large and small. Our construction team includes senior project managers, quantity surveyors and procurement experts who manage every aspect of the process with meticulous attention to detail. Always ensuring that we deliver on time and within budget, while applying the most rigorous health and safety procedures.

Project Management

Every project will succeed or fail depending on how well it is project managed. At Grant, we are meticulous about project planning, project management and communicating with all stakeholders at every stage. Implementing detailed project plans means that if an issue does arise onsite, we’re able to deal with it immediately, without the project being derailed. Because good communications are vital to successful project management, we always provide a single point of contact. One person who will be able to answer any questions at any stage.

Our Clients

We appointed Grant to complete a 50,000sq ft office strip out and Cat A fit-out for dilapidations purposes in South Dublin. They completed the works ahead of schedule and under budget. The Grant team met every task head-on with precision including operating in an occupied multi tenanted building. We would not hesitate to invite them to tender for future projects.

Allen Devine, Savills Ireland

Grant are ICON’s preferred contractor for UK & Ireland and have completed a variety of projects for us recently. This included a brief to assist us in developing a specification & fitting out of two clinics for our new subsidiary company Accellacare, in Coventry & London. There was an extremely ambitious timescale for these and both were fitted out concurrently, going from first building surveys to opened clinics in 3 and half months. The most impressive part of this being that they were delivered during a global pandemic. Throughout, Grant understood this new brand and our culture and helped us achieve the space for our employees and patients that we envisaged. More recently they have helped us with right sizing some of our offices including our Limerick base, where work was carried out in a live occupancy building with no disruption to operations. One of the key ingredients of our relationship is the transparency shown, keeping us up to date with weekly site progress and also the project management from conception to completion, giving us a great deal of comfort when embarking on new projects. We hope to keep the strong relationship going into the future.

John McGeown, Real Estate Project Manager, ICON PLC

We’ve been overwhelmed by the overall result of this project. This building and its spectacular design represent our committed team and the innovative products and services that will be delivered from IKON. I have been impressed by how well the design and construction teams worked together throughout this project to overcome the challenges presented during the build phase. The teams, reliable and highly qualified, clearly delighted in every aspect of this exciting and exceptional project. Together, we have delivered a stunning space in which we are extremely proud to showcase our products on an international stage.

Mike Stenson Head of Innovation - Kingspan

Grant have become an important partner to the Kingspan Group. Delivering Kingspan Light & Air, our state of the art Extrusion Centre of Excellence under a Design & Build contract; which was completed to the highest standards that Kingspan expect and set upon ourselves and our partners. This feat was ever more impressive as it was delivered during the global pandemic. What makes Grant different is their professional yet personable attitude, their passion and collaborative nature, that shows they care as much about the project as we do.
