Comet Group Plc

logo_0001_indexComet Group were once the largest electrical retailer in the UK, selling consumer electronics and white goods, along with other complimentary accessories. Since opening in the 1950’s, Comet grew to have over 300 stores in its estate before sadly entering administration in November 2012.

Over the past 20 years we were the main electrical contractor for Comet Group, working on a range of projects nationwide. We have fitted out in excess of 80 new retail stores for Comet ranging between 20,000 and 30,000 sq ft. in addition to many full store remodels and minor refits. Our contracts were tailored to strict timescales and required working with and around other contractors on projects in and out of normal working hours. Smaller works consisted of re-profiling stores for new product placements and bay layout restructuring to raise revenue from promotion led displays, such as block branding and focal points.

Post-project completion, we were also Comet’s main provider for both planned and reactive maintenance, servicing them with regulatory testing and servicing to ensure the safety of their stores, as well as fixing and diagnosing emergency issues such as power failures and alarm system faults. We supplied this service for 80 stores across the country, being sure to carry out our works in an extremely time-efficient and discreet manner to ensure the day-to-day running of the stores could continue with minimum disruption.

We were nominated contractor of the year 2010,11, and 12.
