Firmingers have been working with JD Sports Fashion Plc since 2016.
Across its new store JD Sports brand, our initial undertaking was a thorough review of its current shopfitting cost budgets, tendering procedures and construction variation process. This resulted in the introduction of a framework rate agreement to run for 2 years, together with an overhaul of its contractor base. The work culminated in a projected £9,000 (6.1%) project reduction in shopfitting costs or £900,000 over the proposed 100 store programme up to the end of 2018
JD Sports is acknowledged as the leading specialist multiple retailer of fashionable branded and own brand sports and casual wear in the UK and Republic of Ireland. Firmingers are currently employed as lead Quantity Surveyors on its new store programme with project management support also provided.
Recent projects have included JD Sports in Huddersfield and Weston-Super-Mare, with additional stores in Stoke Festival Park, Rushden Lakes, Basingstoke, Rochdale, Bracknell, Isle of Man, Birmingham, Truro, Ashford, Sheffield, Liverpool, Hull and Epping to follow.
In addition Firmingers have recently been appointed as Quantity Surveyors on a number of their JD Gyms brand. JD Gyms offer exceptional ‘budget gym’ fitness facilities with sites at Cardiff, Bradford, Glasgow, Sunderland, Wolverhampton, Derby and Liverpool due for completion this year.
