Fulham, London

Date Completed



Major store refurbishment of Waitrose branch in Fulham.

The 20,000sq ft store was closed for 3 weeks as part of an overall 9 week construction fit out programme. The new sales floor now has a wine bar, sushi bar and various coffee offers as well an extensive service counter area including bakery and hot foods.


Paul Earl Limited worked closely with main contractors UC Build.

As part of the project Paul Earl Limited were required to relocate the existing main electrical intake position and install all new mains switch panels throughout the store. LED lighting has been installed throughout the sales floor and back of house, as well as car park and all external areas. New data closets and CAT 6 cabling were installed throughout the building as well as new BMS systems, fire alarms, CCTV, intruder alarms and access control.

“We had a particularly difficult refurbishment project at our Fulham store which involved a complete refrigeration replacement, main switch room relocation, new lighting, plus the addition of cafe and wine bar as well as all the usual concepts. Paul Earl Limited were pro-active from the original scoping meetings and throughout the project, and worked with us to keep the store trading in a difficult construction environment while maintaining customer satisfaction. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending their services.”
