At the beginning of the 1970s, Stamhuis was given a contract for the first time to renovate an Albert Heijn supermarket. Now we are a few thousand (!) retail unit renovations and retail improvements further and Ahold has grown to become our largest customer. To guarantee the high quality of the retail units, Ahold sets high standards with regard to these considerable and challenging operations, and ensures that these are adhered to with unprecedented precision and efficiency.
Unique extra service
We supervise the complete renovation process for Albert Heijn: from the feasibility study up to and including delivery. As a distinguishing extra service, we take care of the storage and transport of pre-assembled shop racks and non-trade goods such as cash register systems, bread corners, decorative features and supermarket trolleys and baskets.
It is mainly about lean and mean renovations with regard to Albert Heijn projects. The longer the supermarket needs to be closed, the more sales are lost. Sound planning and strict monitoring of progress is of essential importance to achieve the required short turnaround. When the supermarket closes at 5 p.m. on a Saturday, delivery must take place the next Saturday. The entire building will be stripped to its shell in those five working days (regardless of the size of the supermarket) and provided with a new interior and modern systems. This process is referred to as NWO: Next Week Open.
