Mace develops relations with retailer

Retailer John Lewis has appointed Mace to fit out of its new £18m department store in Oxford.

The three-storey shop covers 140,000 sq ft and will open in October 2017, anchoring the Westgate Shopping Centre in Oxford city centre that has been redeveloped by Laing O'Rourke at a cost of £440m.

Mace started working on site in April, and will hand the project back to John Lewis in September for an October opening. The scheme is expected to achieve a BREEAM rating of excellent.

Mace's appointment follows on from its recent completion of John Lewis’ new store in Leeds, which opened in October 2016.

John Lewis head of construction Tony Jacob said: “Oxford is an important strategic location for us and we were clear from the beginning of this project that we needed to appoint a contractor who we knew could deliver to our high standards. Working with Mace on the fit-out of our shop in Leeds last year showed us their commitment to quality without compromising on budget or speed of delivery. They were the natural choice for this job, and we look forward to working closely with them as we get our new site ready for its grand opening.”

Mace regional director Neil Hennessey said: “This will be our second project for John Lewis in less than 12 months, and we’re obviously thrilled to be building a long term relationship with such a prestigious British retailer. We’ve developed a reputation for delivering industry-leading retail projects and we will be drawing on this expertise to deliver another outstanding store for John Lewis.”
