Retail Services & Shopping Center Projects

Success doesn’t happen overnight. It is the result of a complex process that starts long before a store officially opens. This is why we have created a dedicated team of retail-oriented professionals, ready to support your projects in every way.

The PDS Retail Team is structured to support clients in all phases of their retail projects, from concept studies to construction activities. Further to an in-depth analysis of the client’s needs, we establish a project-specific team that works along with other C&W service lines.

Shopping Centre Projects: Restyling and Refurbishment

The shopping centre is a complex asset and its success is driven by a number of factors: location, accessibility, architecture, common areas and concept design of each brand. 

PDS created the Shopping Center Projects service line with a dedicated team of highly-skilled professionals in retail, able to support clients on the development of new projects, restyling and refurbishment.

We provide a number of tools and professional services such as:

  • Strategic Analysis and Technical Survey
  • Concept Design
  • Architectural and MEPS Systems Project
  • Design Guidelines
  • Tendering
  • Works Direction
  • Project Management


Pilotage plays a vital role in the larger life cycle of a shopping centre, serving to coordinate all of the key players: Owners, the landlord’s main contractor, tenants and their consultants, external project managers and municipalities. At C&W we use our multifaceted international experience to successfully support you in the creation of new and exciting shopping venues.
