We understand that the key to success on any project is the communication of design to all parties.

Our key members

Graphcad brings together a dynamic team of individuals who contribute to creative and imaginative retail solutions and then translate them into practical reality.

Graphcad offers an exceptional solution that is more flexible, affordable and reliable than anything else on the market because we have freed ourselves from the high costs and restrictions of traditional business models, offering streamlined processes that contrast dramatically with the process-heavy approach of larger organisations.

Chris Hammond


Chris is the Director and founding member of the Graphcad group. He is your first point of contact as our key client service and project implementation professional. Within the Graphcad group, Chris will not only oversee the important site surveys, documentation and details packages which will form the foundation for your project, but will also manage client service and project implementation. He will work alongside you to ascertain the requirements of your project and coordinating team efforts throughout the project period.

“For me, the key is getting on the same wavelength as our clients,” says Chris. “Once we understand exactly what the business and the project requires, we can devise an approach that encompasses those requirements.”

“The Graphcad structure is ideal because it allows us to gather together a specialized team for each project and draw on the exact skills, expertise and resources we need to deliver the best results, from individual design solutions for smaller boutique outlets, to national rollouts for larger businesses.”
