Harriman has specialized in retail design for three decades and we understand the intensive, fast-paced world of retail design. Space is a precious commodity, especially for retailers. As the competition for consumers’ dollars continues to increase, retailers are looking for ways to make the most of the space they have. With our studio dedicated to retail design, we have earned a reputation for innovation, precision, and reliability, and are positioned to assist with all aspects of your retail design needs.
Our Retail Studio consists of a fully integrated team of architects, planners, and a full complement of engineering disciplines. We value relationships and that is reflected in how our studio delivers services. The team is led by a project manager who will oversee the project though all phases – from initial programming to design and through construction and will be the single point of contact for all your needs. The team you start out with is the team that stands by you throughout the whole process. The design team collaborates at all levels to inspire innovative ideas and creative solutions for the project. Consistent and regular communication occurs within the team through inhouse design charrettes and team meetings. The team’s work is further enhanced by internal peer reviews performed at the end of each phase for quality control and coordination.
