Faithful+Gould has been commissioned to deliver IKEA's first store in Mumbai, India, it announced on Tuesday.

The company will provide a comprehensive delivery solution that includes project management, cost management, construction management, and multidisciplinary design services.

This will be the second store in India, a first in the central India region, and is part of IKEA India Private Limited's expansion plan to open 25 stores in the next 10 years, according to a statement on the company website.

Michael Phillips, Faithful+Gould Operations Director – India said in the statement: "The new store is expected to have five million visitors a year, and it will generate jobs for about 500-700 workers.”

The nearly 105,000sqm store is expected to be fully operational by July 2018.

The project will include a basement and ground floor car park, warehouse on the first floor with double-height ceilings, and dedicated retail spaces on two floors to accommodate showrooms, a market hall and restaurant.

Alex Winchester, director, property and major projects, Atkins India, added: “Winning such a hard fought competition is a substantial coup for Atkins and Faithful+Gould.

“Helping one of our key global clients to establish their new foothold in India demonstrates our teams’ collective ability to deliver the same top-tier service in India as they have experienced with us elsewhere in the world.”

Faithful+Gould is planning on further expansion in the Asia Pacific, with plans for new projects in China and Malaysia.
