Mall Renovation Made Easy with Temporary Wall Systems

In the modern age of bricks vs. clicks, it’s important to offer consumers an experience, not just a collection of products. This is why many malls are changing, and it all starts with renovations.

However, increasing foot traffic in malls is difficult even when they’re not undergoing renovations. Dust, noise, and work zone aesthetics subtract from customer experience even more than excessive vacancies.

There are solutions to all of the challenges of reinventing brick-and-mortar shopping. Keep reading as TWS discusses how mall renovation is made easy with temporary walls.

Masking the mess of construction

Temporary walls minimize disruptions. They contain all dust and hide debris, materials, working crew, and everything else associated with construction.

Furthermore, the 1.5” thick urethane foam core inside of each wall dampens noise. There are fewer concerns about power tools overpowering the ambient noise that contributes to the mall experience, from music to water features.

Maintain branding and appeal

Temporary walls do more than hide a mess. What stands in its place is a clean façade offering no visual disruptions.

However, TWS walls can be fitted with custom wraps featuring logos, advertising, and other branding details. Drum up interest by letting visitors know what’s next for that space or advertising retailers in the vicinity.

Transitioning to a mixed-use space

According to real estate investment management firm JLL, the main reason American malls decide to renovate is because they are transforming into mixed-use properties.

Malls are adding residential space, offices, hotels, and more to boost business. Temporary walls help malls retain the existing foot traffic amid these beneficial transitions.

Reduce accidents

Some studies indicate that consumers are making fewer trips to malls but are staying on the premises longer. Indoor or open-air, visitors are enjoying the classic recreational and social opportunities malls have always been known for.

This elevates the risk of accidents as crowds and work zones do not mix. Modular walls create a floor-to-ceiling barrier that keeps patrons away from hazards. This way, malls are less likely to add injury settlements to their renovation expenses.

Completely conceal empty real estate

Redeveloping your anchor, going mixed-use, or swapping retailers involves empty storefronts. This is not encouraging for consumers who already know that many malls are adapting to growth challenges.

Temporary walls are a clean solution for maintaining a shopping center’s environment. They keep vacancies discreet and can be quickly dismantled to reveal new life along the mall’s walkways.

Simplify cleanup

What’s left at the end of the renovation? If you choose temporary drywall as a containment solution, it’s dust and debris.

Get back to business ASAP with temporary walls. They leave no dust or odors behind and reduce waste since they are reusable.
