Who are RPF Projects?

RPF Projects was founded in 2008 to provide an outsourced shop design and project management service to retailers looking for quality, design and cost effective retail interior designs.

The company has grown over the years as RPF has expanded its professional expertise by recruiting specialist retail designers and project managers to join the team. 

The retail industry has its own unique dynamics and drivers. With this in mind, we have placed emphasis on building our team with people from a retail background who have the experience of and can empathise with pace and pressures faced by retailers.

With a combined experience of over 120 years in the industry working with many high street and luxury brands, we successfully manage high quality projects within time and budget constraints, delivering multi million pound store roll-outs to small scale pop-ups, complex airport projects to head office relocation programmes
