ASI Contractors Ltd

Subway Stores

Within ASI Contractors Ltd we have vast amounts of knowledge and experience within the Subway domain completing over 400 new build Subway location fit-outs over the past 10-12 years and numerous remodels of existing Subway stores from Tuscany I to both Tuscany II/METRO decor.

Our fit-out programmes are successfully managed to ensure the minimum contract period is achieved whilst maintaining high standards of work on site via our skilled, motivated and trained workforce - new build locations are built within 19 days and remodels are completed within 3-6 days reducing shutdown periods for open and trading stores.

We operate 15 subway stores in the North of England. We have used ASI to refurbish and build stores over the past 2 years and plan to use them in future for any store developments and refurbishments that we require.

Background

In 2012 a large fire resulted in one of our key stores being written off and in need of rebuilding virtually from scratch, along with the neighbouring units on the development. ASI acted on our behalf to liaise with the various parties involved in the rebuild - insurance companies, surveyors and the landlord's contractor. This was a key role in order to ensure that we were able to reopen our store as quickly as possible, in line with the re-build plan for the other units, and ensuring that issues that would affect our building were identified and raised with the relevant parties to prevent them negatively affecting our unit and costs.

Challenges

The re-build threw up a series of complications that we had never experienced before with standard shop-fits. For example, the landlord contractors were refitting the roof and delivering the empty shell unit back to us, but this was delayed. ASI managed the shop-fit programme to ensure that despite this change, our re-opening was not affected. In addition, the salvaging of some equipment items from the fire resulted in the need to build an equipment list (and required shop-fit work) from a number of sources rather than a standard new build edit list. To make this process more difficult, snow further damaged large items of equipment just before the refit was due to commence and due to ASI identifying this and acting on it swiftly, they were able to replace the key equipment and build this into the programme without any delay in reopening date.

Results

The store was rebuilt on time and on budget despite the many issues that arose. The standard of work was excellent with strong attention to detail. The project manager was contactable at all times and prompt to answer any queries we had by email or telephone. When an equipment supplier delivered a few smaller items late (after handover date), ASI sent someone into the store on the same day to fit these pieces. I would recommend ASI for any building / shop-fit work and we intend to continue to use them for any future stores and refits.

The entire process from survey to handover was splendid. Despite the number of "curveballs" thrown at the schedule, everything was worked around and everything remained on track. You might even say it was biblical.

Curveballs:

  • Coca-Cola arriving three days later than required - no impact
  • Bringing handover date three days forward - no impact
  • Lack of three phase power supply - no impact
  • Supplier sending incorrect oven two days before handover - no impact

So much joy was derived from the use of ASI that they're also man-handling a remodel at another store...
