Taking us back to our childhood – and loving it!

Over the last few months at wdl we have had the pleasure of working on a major refurbishment project for the world’s most famous toy shop.

We have been working on a £4m revamp of Hamleys’ flagship store, which is located on Regent Street in London.

The 2012 overhaul: the store’s first refurbishment for 12 years, had to be meticulously planned to allow the shop to stay open throughout the project and be finished in time for the arrival in London of an anticipated 5.5 million visitors each day during the Olympics.

Hamleys is all about fun and while we ensured that everything ran smoothly with the project, we too had a great time working on this job.  We are proud of our long standing relationship with Hamleys; wdl project designed and project managed the refurbishment of Hamleys head offices at Foubert’s Place, London in 1999 and then again in 2011 and were thrilled to be chosen for this project at the iconic london store.

The work involved the refurbishment of all five floors of the store and we are sure it will give years of pleasure to visitors: young and old.
