The Brief

Victoria’s secret is an American brand with outlets across the world. They aim for every store to follow their retail design and lighting specification exactly. That meant we had to follow an extremely complex design manual and drawing pack, with specifications that were very different from those normally used in the UK.

Our Approach

Our first step was to decipher and understand the drawings and specifications in order to carry out the work. As equipment was being supplied from the US, we had to carefully manage our timescales to ensure there were enough parts to complete the work. 

The Solution

We re-wired each of the 630 light fittings as they were manufactured to US specifications. Our technicians also carried out extra work ensuring that the Building Management System could communicate with an American-based control system, which required an additional 2,000 cables being installed. The project was extremely complex, yet our knowledge and flexibility meant that the store opened on time and to budget, and is now a dazzling retail experience.  79 Group have delivered several Victoria Secrets and Pink projects including Brighton, Milton Keynes and Oxford Westgate Centre. 

The 79group have become a trusted supplier who consistently deliver; providing lighting design within a number of our concessions and full electrical installation on 36 Arcadia projects within Tesco Extra Stores across the UK. From Miss Selfridge, Dorothy Perkins, Burton and Evans, The 79group understand our concepts for our concessions and provide guidance and help to ensure the highest standards are met.
