We have successfully completed numerous commercial and retail projects including shopping centres such as Bethlehem Town Centre in Tauranga and Fashion Island in Papamoa, and predominant Tauranga commercial buildings including Cameron Ridge and Gartshore House.

While most customers choose to engage Marra for both the base building construction and the internal fitout, we have plenty of service options in the commercial and retail fields.

New Zealand retail buildings come in all shapes and sizes, from strip malls & retail centres to small suites in tech buildings and stand-alone mega-stores that offer acres of commercial floor space.

Retail store designs are generally based around the products being promoted. For example, a light showroom might require a large amount of electrical wiring and an effective roof supporting system to accommodate a large number of different types of lighting technologies, displayed in a real-world setting.

Large NZ retailers have assimilated various factors into a standardised retail construction design for the stores they build across New Zealand. This is essentially part of their branding process. For example, many large hardware chains employ a blend of tilt-up construction and steel building construction in their retail space that is consistent from store to store. By undertaking this branding profile the retail store layout establishes a single and consistent “look” for the company.

Our construction project management team can deliver a retail building that showcases the retail tenant’s services and products and, in addition, support their continued growth.

A mark of distinction for retail building construction, Marra has received a number of awards and honours.
