Shelby was appointed by Co-op Funeralcare to deliver its branch refurbishment strategy. During this two-year appointment, Shelby successfully delivered more than 60 projects during 2017 and 2018.

The properties were generally located on high streets, within busy city and town centre areas, normally with constrained access for deliveries, parking and operatives. In some cases, the refits were undertaken within live trading environments, ensuring minimal disruption to the client's business operations.

The scope of works for the refit projects often included:

  • Dilapidation / remedial works
  • Structural modifications
  • Shopfront modifications
  • Fire separation
  • Roof / glazing replacement
  • Internal partitions and doors
  • Interior fit out and finishes
  • New furniture

A Co-operative Funeralcare spokesperson said:

“Shelby are the Co-operative’s current preferred supplier of Project and Programme Management services within our Funeralcare workstream and consistently deliver projects to a very high standard.”
