Oxford Street 2013

Following Debenhams new design concept brief to create an “iconic” flagship store, Thompson undertook the design for the new lighting and electrical installation throughout the 370,000 square foot store. 

The major internal refit extends throughout all five levels and allows for a significant proportion of the fifth floor to be converted into trading space. The store remained trading through the phased work which brought its own challenges to the project. An evolving design concept throughout the programme meant that the project team worked in harmony with the Main Contractor to deliver a high specification finish to the clients requirements accommodating the changes and enhancements agreed on during the project.

During the 18 Month Project, Thompsons maintained a site presence 24/7 for 365 days a year apart from Christmas Day, Boxing Day and Easter to ensure timely completion of the project!

“Having worked with Thompson Electrical for a number of years we were familiar with their work ethic and professional approach and with this in mind Thompson were chosen to work with us the demanding Debenhams Project. 

This demanding project has been a challenge for all concerned. The project was completed in various phases to ensure operation of the department store at all time.

Thompson provided solutions to problems and formed an integral part of the project team.  Thompson exercised a commitment to Quality and Health and Safety and highly professional approach and offered us an outstanding service on this demanding and intense project.  

The whole project team from director level to site team were dedicated to the successful delivery of this high profile redevelopment to ensure completion to the clients exacting requirements.
