The transformation of an existing used car showroom into a combined used car / MG dealership required the full demolition of the internal structural concrete mezzanine and front face of the building. The existing partitioning, flooring, ceilings, lighting, wall tiles, toilet cubicles, electrical and mechanical services were also stripped out ready for the new design to be installed.
The sales and aftersales staff were relocated into temporary office accommodation, provided by Vanguard Contracts, whilst the works were completed.
The existing front façade of the building was completely demolished including all brickwork, existing showroom glazing and first floor glazing. After which, the installation of new structural steelwork and curtain walling including new pedestrian access doors and bifold vehicle access doors was carried out. New Kingspan cladding was installed to the complete perimeter of the building and the existing roof was overclad with a new roof system and new solar panelling was then installed.
The fit-out required new stud partitioning to form the new offices and BOH facilities along with a new dividing wall to divide the unit into two new areas. Also, new office glazing, general joinery, new kitchen / canteen facility, both staff and customer WC facilities, ceilings, ceramic tiling, and soft flooring along with new electrical, data, lighting, plumbing, ventilation, and AC services. The existing roof and all new services were sprayed black along with the existing bifold doors.
The workshop had new structural steelwork installed to take the load of the new roof works along with new roller shutter doors. These works were completed in phases allowing the workshop to function throughout the refurbishment works.
Externally, new lampposts were installed to the perimeter of the carpark via new trenching and electrical services. New electrical services were also installed to provide power to the new EV charging stations and external totem signage. New concrete bases were also installed to provide fixing points for the new signage and vehicle charging stations.
A new incoming mains service was required to power the new EV charging points which involved new trenching, ducting and a new housing.
