Firmingers were employed as cost consultants on the £4 million food hall refurbishment of Fenwick’s flagship store in Newcastle upon Tyne. The concept design by CADA delivered exciting new eateries including south east Asian street food, seafood and oyster bar, Mediterranean restaurant, café, patisserie, wine shop and bar, chocolate boutique, coffee bar and general grocery shop.


Firmingers were appointed in September 2014 to assist with the project procurement process and cost management of the scheme. This included a 2 stage tender, value engineering workshops in Naturno, Italy with the shopfitting contractor and comprehensive cost monitoring of the construction phase. This close working relationship with the Client and design team ensured initial budgets were maintained from inception to handover.


The fit out was carried out in 3 phases over an 18 week period, completing in October 2015.
