Project Description

The Right Start was a baby themed specialty store that evolved from a catalogue operation into a retail program. RGLA was assigned the task of refining the design and rolling-out stores in higher-end malls across the country. The design refinement was not a total re-design but instead, was meant to “fix” and standardize some of the store’s architectural details, millwork, fixturing, lighting and signage. RGLA also helped the Owner find vendors, develop a bulk buying program for millwork, lighting and fixturing and coordinated the construction process (bidding, contract and execution).


Project Architect / Project Manager: Involved with multiple projects in the retail roll-out program. Was a ‘full-service’ Architect to the client’s construction department. Directed all of the work including store design refinement, store fixture and signage refinement and project delivery – design through construction. Project delivery included: surveying proposed spaces, developing project budgets and schedules, development of contact documents, coordination of bid activities and construction administration phase work –   directed all aspects of the process. Provided a detailed status reporting of the active projects for use by the Owner in managing his process.
