Project context

In its bid to always give its customers premium service, the Galeries Lafayette group, a French chain of department stores, hired Korus to work on its Nice store.

Korus renovated and fitted out the department store’s 7 levels, working in concert with the group’s furnishings department for the cabinetry and joinery elements.

Korus' involvement

  • General contractor
  • Execution of the architectural and fit-out work packages
  • Cabinetry and joinery

Project challenges

  • Set-up and management of contractor’s site facilities.
  • Korus acted as the coordinator of the various contractors involved in two macro work-packages covering architecture and fit-out. Korus was also the key contact for the project management, for all phases from the execution to the completion of the first tranche of work.
  • Observance of architectural constraints.
  • Adaptation of work hours as the work was carried out in stages while the store remained open for business.
  • Management of equipment, materials, public and personnel flows as the site was open for business. Respect for safety and cleanliness by protecting work and premises at all times.
