Surveys Bridge Gaps in Convenience Store Renovations
January 24, 2023 by Jamie Banks – There is both an art and a science to convenience store remodeling. AccuStore helps bridge the gap from where the art ends and the science begins. How? It’s all in the surveys.
There are two major reasons for convenience store renovations.
The first when stores get acquired and the follow-up rebranding. The second is the convenience store industry is shifting to a menu-forward model with fresh food offerings for customers.
A convenience store rebranding after acquisition requires surveys to identify and quantify all the elements that need to be renovated to follow the in-store brand standards. A Virtual Store Walkthrough makes a visual record that can be viewed from any phone, tablet or desktop. With accurate measurements built into the scan, construction teams use Virtual Store Walkthroughs for planning. With the virtual scan, we can also add-on and supply schematic floor plans or BIM file which helps greatly with the design aspect.
Plus, these save trips to the job site during the convenience store renovation.
For a convenience store renovation that is more complicated than a rebranding, a store survey should be undertaken. This method provides a digital record of each store’s assets, locations of assets, and photos. This includes architectural elements, fixtures, appliances, locations of utilities, and anything else that may be necessary for a convenience store remodeling project. This type of survey provides critical background information for any type of renovation.
In conclusion, surveying a convenience store before renovations is a critical step that provides the necessary information to plan, budget, and execute the renovation project effectively. A digital scan that creates a Virtual Store Walkthrough provides a visual record that can save travel time and money. A store survey helps identify challenges and ensures that the renovated store meets the requirements of the renovation.
