rischegroup Completes Work on Flagship Bang & Olufsen Store

We’re excited to have been selected by exclusive audio and video manufacturer, Bang & Olufsen, to complete the fit-out of its brand new flagship store in the North of England. Probably even more so to have attended it’s exclusive launch last night (even as a Manchester City fan in the presence of Sir Alex Ferguson…).

Situated in Wilmslow, Cheshire, the new Bang & Olufsen store was installed in an empty unit that, due to the fact that it was previously occupied by a tile retailer, needed to be fully kitted out to host a large number of electronic products.

As huge admirers of the brand, the team at rischegroup was thrilled to work closely with Bang & Olufsen to ensure the company’s corporate identity was carefully incorporated all of the way from design to completion.

One of the key aims for Bang & Olufsen was to provide a fully immersive experience for its customers; a challenge rischegroup was thrilled to take on. In order to achieve this, our team worked around the clock to deliver the KNX intelligent building control system designed to integrate with virtually any device or home automation system. Bang & Olufsen’s seamless integration with most household products provides control of everything from blinds to speakers, heating to television; this system, coupled with the Wilmslow store’s state-of-the-art cinema room will provide customers the extra special Bang & Olufsen experience they have come to expect from this luxury retail brand.

The project wasn’t without its challenges. The condition of the original floor presented issues when it came to getting power and data to the required areas in the store that required innovative solutions. And laying the solid oak herringbone floor required exacting precision from our team of artisan craftsmen.

rischegroup often has to work with other partners during a project and this one was no exception. We worked closely with Bang & Olufsen’s innovative manufacturing partners throughout the project to ensure everything was delivered seamlessly and to the rigorous standards they expected.
