We work with retailers across the globe, supplying design-related documentation, 3D models, and computer-generated images that are used for planning, construction and project management purposes. We use Autodesk’s Revit application to create and validate our work.

Working to local production standards, we currently provide production drawing services for a range of retailing organisations operating in the apparel, banking, fast food, restaurant, electronics, telecoms, and IT sectors. Working seamlessly with local project teams, we provide documentation that is delivered to high standards and at lower costs.

We combine the skills of our people; the experience gained from past projects; a detailed understanding of the retail industry; our site-based expertise; a tried and tested delivery process; and intelligent technology to provide a top-class service. Our systematic approach ensures minimal duplication or rework, allowing projects to be completed faster.

By using our services, our clients not only benefit from cost reductions (typically saving over 50% compared to domestic costs) but also improved levels of productivity. Our service levels, experience and fees have directly contributed to the clients selecting us, ahead of our competitors.

We offer a range of CAD / BIM support services to retailers, allowing them to focus their costs and resources on their core business. Our support services cover all stages of the design process and include the services explained in detail below.

Production Drawings Sets

We provide complete construction drawing sets to retail industry, created using the latest software from Autodesk (Revit or AutoCAD) or bespoke software created by our customers. We also use additional detailing packages such as SolidWorks to create drawings for engineered solution that are used in retail design.

Our construction sets incorporate all key drawings including floor plans, internal elevations, external elevations, construction plans, setting-out drawings, composite plans, finishing plans, lighting and ceiling plans. Our drawings also include comprehensive equipment schedules and material and component take-off data.

Our skilled teams of interior designers and architects have experience of retail design, documentation, and project management. Through local office liaison, an understanding of brand direction and through consultation with design standards our design teams provide an essential extension to our customers, taking responsibility for concept design and layout for a range of retail outlets.

Most of the work we carry out for the retail sector is created using Revit Architecture and Revit MEP tools. This allows us to check the accuracy of a model and also to use the 3D model for a range of other purposes such as the extraction of ‘green building’ data and for creating 4D models that are useful for planning the installation stage of the project. As part of our 3D modelling service, we also provide scan-to-BIM services, using point cloud data as our source material.

XS CAD also provides building information modelling (BIM) services to retailers. By producing BIM models for our retail clients, we are able to provide a high-quality service Revit Architecture and Revit MEP. These applications allows us to create retail stores or outlets on a database-driven program, allowing 3D output that can be tested for interferences and act as a base for technical 2D data such as production drawings and material and part schedules. The extraction of automated schedules directly from the BIM model ensures accuracy and speed of retail design output. The BIM models can also be used for input into rendering and visualisation tools to allow realistic views to be created and used for presentation purposes.

We create and manage libraries as blocks (for AutoCAD) or as families (for Revit) for our clients so that the drawing process can be simplified. Our Revit family models speed up the design production process. As well as the flexibility of parametric models, they allow us to add additional data to models that can be extracted at a later point for schedules and material take-off information.

We create manufacturing and assembly drawings for bespoke retail furniture, fixtures and fittings. Our detailed drawings are based on design and material specifications provided to us. We create detailed drawings showing technical and specifications data based on the intended design using AutoCAD detailing software.

We are able to create floor plans in a range of styles to use in bid presentations, in brochures and on websites. Our floor plans can be created in a range of formats including colour coded plans or 3D plans with or without furniture and fittings.

Computer Generated Images

We create realistic computer-generated images for external and internal perspectives. We start by creating accurate 3D models that are then used within sophisticated rendering application to produce photorealistic images. Besides, we create images featuring artistic and watercolour effects to suite the preferred style of each clients. Computer-generated images support the tender and bid process but they are also used by project teams and other stakeholders to gain a visual understanding of the design and layout of retail interiors.
