Kathmandu Flagship Store Rollout

Project details: 

Kathmandu is synonymous in Australia with outdoor adventure clothing and equipment.  The organisation has over 130 stores throughout Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.  

APP was appointed by Kathmandu to manage the fitout for six of their new flagship stores in Australia and New Zealand. These flagship stores spearheaded a broader rollout of new stores across both regions and as the chain's largest stores, they were required to showcase the entire range of clothing, footwear, and base camp equipment including tents and furniture for camping.

With fixed deadlines and budget, APP developed a programme that ensured the rollout occured as smoothly as possible across a variety of stand alone premises and shopping centre tenancies. Kathmandu were so delighted with the result they subsequently appointed APP to manage the rollout of a further four Kathmandu stores in NSW and WA.


"...I found APP to be honest, professional, reliable and hard working.  I have no doubt that their experience with other retail projects of this scale and nature greatly assisted in achieving a successful outcome for us.  Each project held challenges however APP consistently strived to ensure the project was delivered on time and within budget.

I am extremely happy with the level of service APP provided as well as the various structured communication reporting mechanisms put in place on these projects including project programme, cost planning and quality records.  

...I thank APP for their contribution...".
