Lay-out and routing
When we talk about the layout of a garden center, we are actually talking about the outer dimensions and areas of the different spaces. For example, the distribution of the spaces in terms of location influences the to be implemented routing.
The term routing does not mean anything other than “the sequence of the assortments presented and the route which the customer must or can follow”.
Practice shows that in many cases the layout has already been determined. There is an existing building or the entrepreneur has already commissioned an architect to make a design.
Garden Retail Management is strongly in favor of a different approach for this process. First determine what you want to be as an entrepreneur and which image goes with it. Determine which assortments you want to offer, both in terms of size and place in the routing. Partly based on this, make a floor plan and a routing in 2D. Let the latter be the starting point for the architect to, among other things, design the layout of the building.
The services provided by Garden Retail Management Support in terms of layout and routing have four basic steps;
- Determine concept
- 2D visualization of a floor plan and concept routing
- Determine colors and materials, etc. for the interior, visualized in 3D
- Implementation in collaboration with partners.
