A retail strip out involves the systematic removal of interior fixtures, fittings, and non-structural elements from a retail space in preparation for renovation, refurbishment, or change of use.

Strip Outs For Retail

Stredder Construction executes soft strip outs and full demolition strip outs for retail spaces including: shopping stores, supermarkets, convenience stores, department stores, and outlet stores.

A soft strip out focuses on carefully dismantling interior elements while preserving the integrity of the building’s structure. Soft strip outs involve the strategic removal of fixtures, fittings, and non-load-bearing walls, leaving the building’s structural elements intact. This may include removing:

  • Fixtures and fittings
  • Ceilings
  • Security systems
  • Partitioning
  • Flooring coverings
  • HVAC components
  • Shelving units

The Retail Strip Out Process

Initial Assessment: The first step of the process is to undertake an initial assessment and survey at your retail outlet. This includes evaluating the layout, existing fixtures, and any specific requirements outlined by the client.

Planning and Preparation: Based on the assessment undertaken by Stredder Construction, we will then develop a customised plan for your tailored strip out plan. Within this stage, we’ll ensure all safety measures are in place to ensure a smooth and efficient operation. Preparation also involves protecting the surrounding areas.

Selective Demolition: The third stage of the process focuses on selective demolition. This involves removing interior elements and dismantling elements including: counters, non-load-bearing walls, display cases, shelving units, and more.

Fixture and Fitting Removal: As and when requested to do so, Stredder Construction can also undertake fixture and fitting removal. This may include the removal of the following elements: electrical wiring, plumbing fixtures, and other other non-structural components.

Waste Management: All materials and fixtures removed during the strip out process will be responsibly disposed of by our 5-star-rated team. We conduct waste management by local regulations and environmental standards.

When Are Retail Strip Outs Required?

There are several reasons that retail strip outs may be required at your store or outlet.

Stredder Construction is frequently requested to undertake retail strip outs for the following reasons:

Renovation or Refurbishment: If you’re seeking to renovate or refurbish your existing retail space, a strip out can often be beneficial as it creates a clean slate for the installation of new ideas, elements, and concepts. Stripping your retail space to a blank canvas helps to create a new layout or design without any limitations.

Preparing for Sale or Lease: Retail strip outs are also requested when the owner is preparing for sale or lease. Stripping your retail outlet, and removing outdated or unsightly elements, can help to enhance its market appeal. New buyers or tenants will have a blank canvas to easily incorporate their brand image.

Change of Use: Looking to convert your current retail space into a restaurant, office, or another type of commercial space? If so, a strip out is likely required. Here, we can remove fixtures and fixtures that have been specifically installed for retail. Strip out services ensure that the space is suitable for its new intended use.

What is the difference between a soft strip out and a full strip out?

There is a key difference between a soft strip out and a full strip out. Stredder Construction are able to provide both for your retail outlet, depending on your bespoke requirements. Essentially, a soft strip out focuses on selectively removing non-structural elements, such as fixtures and fittings, whereas a full strip out involves more extensive demolition and the removal of structural components.

Do I need to hire a professional for a retail strip out?

Yes, of course, it’s always advisable to hire a professional company to undertake a retail strip out. Hiring a strip out contractor, just like Stredder Construction, ensures that the entirety of the process is carried out safely and efficiently. Moreover, we’ll ensure that all practices are undertaken in-line with the latest health and safety and environmental regulations. 

How long does a retail strip out take?

The duration of a retail strip out can vary depending on a number of factors including the type of strip out required, the size of your retail space, and any further specific requirements.  A retail strip out project can take anywhere from a few days to several weeks to complete, and we’ll always keep you informed with an estimated timeframe of completion.

Will a retail strip out disrupt my business operations?

It’s likely that there may be a degree of disruption to your business operations during the retail strip out process. However, to minimise disruption, we do our utmost to complete the work out-of-hours to reduce downtime.
