DDS were asked to implement Specsaver’s multi-branch redecoration. Work started in-store in November 2014, and less than year later, 15 of the stores in England and Wales have so far been completed. Although the range of redecoration work has varied store to store, the high-end specification has been applied to every branch of the opticians. The work has included the application of specialist techniques such as wall graphics.

As is often the case with commercial projects, it has been a tight time scale, but DDS have been able to bring each store in on time, drawing on our experience of working with and around specialist re-fit contractors. We are specialists in retail decorating (this makes up around 70% of our workload) and are proud of our portfolio, which includes independent retailers, big chains such as Ali, Pizza Express and Marks and Spencer and luxury retailers such as Michael Kors, Selfridges, Harrods, Hugo Boss, Versace and Juicy Couture.

DDS have become well known for our expertise in various specialist finishes, such as: fire protection; airless spraying of emulsions and topcoats; high-volume, low-pressure spraying; commercial wide vinyl wallcoverings; and floor coatings. We also offer clients the reassurance of a 24-hour nationwide service. DDS are accredited to the Safecontractor, Constructionline and CHAS schemes and assessed annually.

DDS also believe very strongly in giving something back to the community and have been delighted to be involved in the DIY SOS Big Build as part of the Children in Need appeal to create a community centre for the Norris Green area of Liverpool.
