Retail Construction Houston Case Study: The Studio
The Studio, River Oaks District
We are pleased to share a retail construction Houston case study based on general contracting services for The Studio by Stylepoint in the River Oaks District. As a local retail sector construction firm and general contractor, we know the River Oaks area of Houston particularly well.
As the fourth largest city in the nation, Houston’s retail environment strengthens the local economy, generates tax revenue, and provides jobs. Retailers are constantly renovating and rehabbing square footage for their tenants, including the shopping boutiques, shopping centers and malls that dot the greater Houston metroplex. And that’s where Right Choice Development & Construction comes in.
We work with landlords and property managers to re-imagine space, reconfigure shopping environments, and customize amenities for the most demanding audiences. This is demonstrated through photos of The Studio project, a curated personal shopping experience and styling service featuring elite brands and clientele.
Retail Construction Houston: Scope of Project
- Renovation: 1,000 square feet within a high-end personal shopping styling studio with 9×9 dressing room
- Sheetrock/drywall: demolition on existing walls, including restroom walls
- Plumbing: plumbed in a full private restroom and a wet bar area
- Electrical: installation of electrical panel and track lighting
- Millwork: custom cabinetry equipped with mirrors and custom glass doors
- Painting: gray walls, black deck and all-exposed pipes in black
- Stud work: metal
- 45-day construction start-to-finish time frame
- Emphasis on high-end aesthetics, functionality, and maximized use of space
- Wet bar installation to accommodate pre-ordering of snacks, cocktails or wine from nearby restaurants
- Dressing room and interior lighting — well lit to feature clothing and accessories
Through daily management supervision, we minimized downtown to achieve timeline and deliverables. Our hands-on management team was on site daily during the construction phase to oversee the workflow and ensure smooth operations.
Our work focused on deluxe features: wet bar, track lighting, custom glass doors and the industrial vibe of all-exposed black pipes.
We also considered the unique and exclusive nature of the business itself, and balanced privacy within the dressing area with the social aspects of the space, which could also provide hosting events.
The proof is in the pictures: aesthetically stunning space for upmarket shoppers who value a world-class retail experience. When the focus is on upscale build-outs, finish-outs, and build-to-suit services, then aesthetics and artistry are must-have elements.
The 45-day time frame was achieved on budget and as scheduled, and The Studio debuted in the fall of 2017 with an impressive amount of press coverage. The demolition of “the old” resulted in the installation of “the new”—exquisite interior square footage that adds functionality and a “wow” factor.
