Firmingers have been working with JD Sports Fashion Plc since 2016. 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.
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 initially 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
Projects have included new JD Sports sites across the UK, including recent shops at Barnsley, Chester, Manchester, Portsmouth & Reading.
In addition, Firmingers have also been appointed as Quantity Surveyors across their JD Gyms brand. JD Gyms offer exceptional ‘budget gym’ award winning facilities and play host to a bespoke mix of the industry’s leading fitness equipment and an exciting range of classes.
We have completed over 20 new sites in the last 3 years, more recently opening Gyms in Leeds, Doncaster and West Bromwich.
