DIY shop design Pet and aquatic stores thinking of upgrading their shop fittings can now make use of a free design pack from the British shopfitting company Casco. The pack contains the information and drawing material required to produce initial draft plans of a possible new store layout. A grid pad with a scale of one centimetre to one metre of floor space is included. Drawing on the inspiration and information provided in the pack, a possible new layout is sketched in pencil. Information sheets with colour pictures of popular units are supplied in the pack, giving their exact sizes. To help further, a template sheet is also supplied with cut-outs of aquarium, plant, bird, reptile and small animal units. The template sheet allocates the correct amount of floor space for each unit and the templates can easily be transferred to the grid plan.
