Robertson grows burgeoning showroom business
Robertson has secured a third contract to develop an Audi Garage in Dundee, on the back of successfully delivering two car showrooms for John Clark Motor Group (JCMG) in Aberdeen, which is due for completion this month, March 2016.
The first contract which Robertson secured with the Motor Group was to construct the £5 million Nissan and MINI dealerships within the Balmoral Business Park in Altens, Aberdeen in 2014.
Following its successful completion in 2014, it went on to develop the £9m Aberdeen Audi showroom, one of the biggest in the UK. Construction began in January 2015 and took 42 weeks to deliver reaching successful completion in October 2015.
Keith Taylor, regional managing director of Robertson Eastern, said: “The team has become highly experienced in delivering high-specification car showrooms working to the highest, exacting standards imposed by the car manufacturers.
“They also project managed several client appointed specialists during the construction process including Corporate Workspace and Straightset for the furniture and workshop fit-outs.
“Being appointed to deliver a third facility for JCMG demonstrates that we have become a trusted supplier to the Group and we’re very pleased to be delivering their Audi showroom in Dundee.”
Audi design and brand standards mandate the very highest precision and quality for all finishes. The modern facility incorporates specialist features including a dramatic curved feature wall, unique mesh effect over-cladding and curved ceilings.
The main 10,000 sq ft showroom has space to display over 20 new models under a specially designed lighting system as well as accommodating staff offices and storage facilities. The showroom also boasts two customer lounge areas for customers to either work or relax while they wait for their vehicle in the workshop, plus a children’s play area to keep the young ones entertained. There is also a separate building on-site to house 12 used cars.
The premises includes an 18,000 sq ft workshop with space for servicing in excess of 30 cars. Each bay includes a hydraulic vehicle lift which is cast into the concrete floor allowing them to be fully recessed.
There is a convenient three lane automated drive-in service for customers visiting the workshop which is located adjacent to service reception ensuring the customer experience is seamless and efficient.
