  • Detailed pharmacy drawings so clients know what they are getting and the associated costs rather than “conceptual” drawings which can harbour surprises
  •  Fair fee structure for what is delivered

The Exterior

The exterior is the first thing the prospective customer will see. Therefore it is important that the pharmacy is visible and the signage clearly directs people to the entrance.

The Interior

The interior of the pharmacy is the canvas on which your design is displayed therefore it is a critical that it creates a shopping environment which makes the client feel comfortable and familiar, encouraging them to find it a space that they enjoy and feel relaxed in.

The Retail Area

Smart design can influence the traffic patterns of the clients whilst in the pharmacy. The ability to develop a traffic flow template through good design enables you to direct clients to the areas and products in the pharmacy that will meet the client’s requirement and generate you sales.

The Prescription Area

For many pharmacies the prescription area is the hub and life blood of the pharmacy. It is the seemless integration of this area with the main retail areas that is key to it's success. It needs to look professional, yet approachable and be highlighted through lighting, signage and architectural elements. A good layout of this area will lead to a fast and efficient work flow.

Back Areas

These areas are crucial to the working of the pharmacy. Often they are small so space needs to be optimised to ensure the flow and storage are maximised.

It is the combination of areas and their seamless integration that delivers the overall dynamics of a pharmacy. Therefore it is important when appointing a designer to ensure they know how these areas and the resources that makes them work together to deliver the total experience for the client.
