Case Study: Retail Nationwide Building Society

Shopfitting & Interiors

What We Do: Retail. Nationwide Building Society, Coventry


This project for our long standing client, Nationwide Building Society is part of a current rollout programme re-fresh and re-modelling along with a variety of other levels of refurbishment to existing branches, flagship stores and new acquisitions.

Coventry was selected as a flagship store and a culmination of 12 months worth of Nationwide's 'test and learn' store installations.  It runs over 2 floors which comprise private meeting rooms together with open meeting spaces for less informal customer discussions as well as elements of back of house works within the basement, together with cash desk and private meeting rooms with further open meeting areas and conversation desks for interaction with clients via ipads and laptops on the first floor.

Barnwood's CAD Team used the clients information to produce working drawings which enabled our Joinery Workshop to manufacture the cash desks, book cases and various other solid surface items before moving them into position on site which allowed us to create a design that encapsulated the original design intent.


On-time delivery is essential to retail outlets, who need to be operating as quickly as possible. Detail and accuracy is just as vital, from manufacture and installation to ensuring robustness for heavy footfall.
