In June 2014, 4AD was approached by EC Harris to act as an outsource design team as part of their commission to implement the redesign and refresh programme for Specsavers High Street opticians.

The 4AD team commenced work in July 2014 and the final branch of Specsavers was completed in January 2015. The work involved refreshing and brightening the image of the stores. Each required a separate scoping visit and survey with design drawings generated and Planning/Listed Building Applications submitted as required. The programme was challenging but was achieved with the flexibility afforded by the wide geographical coverage and the interchangeable resources between the 4AD offices.
