Faithful+Gould’s relationship with Nike commenced in 1998, upgrading several departments in Nike Town London. In 2001 Faithful+Gould was appointed to provide project management and cost services for Nike’s pan European store programme. Projects ranged from work on Nike Town Developments to creating new retail and factory outlets throughout Europe. Faithful+Gould has managed over 40 stores across Nike’s full retail offering including locations in Ireland, Poland, Scandinavia, Holland, Tenerife and the UK.
Faithful+Gould dedicated a team of managers to interact with the Nike personnel. Faithful+Gould managers were relocated to work within the Nike offices throughout Europe. For smaller retail outlets Faithful+Gould staff travelled throughout Europe to provide the service demanded by our client. Our team had to be very flexible and dedicated to manage these fast track retail projects that are forever in a cycle of change and development. The challenge was to: To provide unrivalled service to Nike, meeting very demanding project budgets, programmes and levels of quality throughout Europe; to keep up to speed with the latest Nike design developments to ensure each new project has the very latest thinking in place at project completion, to maintain the pace of the store opening programme.
Faithful+Gould’s teams fully integrated with Nike’s management teams to provide a seamless service. Nike opened over 40 state-of-the-art retail outlet stores throughout Europe to meet their development plan.
