The brothers Colin and Steve Wilson, retail entrepreneurs in the Canadian town of Saskatoon, have chosen the British HPW Architects and the Dutch Grimbergen Group to build an impressive new retail centre for them. Their new retail centre will be twice as large as their present shop, with an area of no less than 12 ,000 m2.
It will form part of a large new retail and leisure centre incorporating various other shops, a restaurant and a gym. The Wilson brothers wanted to be certain of working with the very best specialists in retail design, and that brought them to a combination of the British architectural firm HPW and the Dutch specialist Thermoflor (Bright Buildings’ sister company). They have for quite some time already been working together in the British market, where they have created various attractive shops.
The new retail centre will be built 200 metres from the present shop, which will remain in business until the new premises are opened. Thermoflor will start work at the site in August, so that all the operations will be completed before the local severe winter, which begins in December. A smart combination with entertainment activities ensures that the building can be used all the year round. Part of the sales area for plants is emptied for a few months a year to allow it to be used as an indoor go-kart circuit.
