A New Acuitis Opticians Opens!

Acuitis are a high-end fashion house for optics, where all the frames sold in store are designed by their artistic director Mr Beausoleil.

This new Acuitis opticians, the third to open in the UK, is located within the Westgate shopping centre, a £440m development in the heart of Oxford city centre, comprising 800,000 sq. ft. of retail and leisure space. 

Working collaboratively with the main contractor, Maynards successfully delivered a very tight programme to ensure the fit-out met the high standards required by the client. The project’s logistics presented a further challenge as our team had to work inside the developer’s site alongside over 80 other retailers, all fitting out their stores at the same time.
