Synergy were given the opportunity by global furniture giant IKEA to partner with them on their new Order and Collection Point developments across the UK.
Order and Collection Points take the concept of click-and-collect stores to the next level, with the idea being that customers can pick up their ordered furniture, have a coffee and enjoy free wifi in the in-store café whilst also browsing a selection of best-sellers in a mini-showroom.
IKEA are known for building large, out-of-town stores that cover 250,000 sqft but with land at a premium in this country, they are now focusing on investing in the smaller concept store. In this way, they can take over existing commercial buildings such as shopping centres or warehouses that no longer have a use.
We were chosen as Mechanical and Electrical Design Consultants for IKEA, enabling us to explore fresh and exciting ideas in building services engineering and helping IKEA bring their home retail vision of Order and Collection Points to more customers across the length and breadth of the UK.
The First Order and Collection Pointin Norwich
The partnership with IKEA is exciting for Synergy, both in terms of the specialist expertise we can offer them in building services engineering and the opportunity to work with this multi-national company on a fresh new concept. Along with the Norwich store which is now open and Aberdeen which is near completion, we are delighted to be contracted to work with IKEA on several more Order and Collection Points over the next few years. It’s a journey we’re very much looking forward to.
