Audi’s £30m site on target

Construction at the world’s largest Audi dealership is well under way, with project managers predicting that construction will be finished by April 2008.

The £30m seven-storey building is located on London’s Great West Road.

Two levels are located underground. The first will house a car park while the second has 28 workshop bays and one for MoTs, plus further parking spaces.

Keith Park, regional director for Birmingham-based project managers, Concept, says: “In all there will be space for 289 cars to be parked underground, while the external car park on the ground level has 22 more spaces.”

Concept is working with ISG Interior Exterior, the main contractors.

The first three levels above ground will be used as car showrooms holding up to 94 vehicles.

“Cars will be transported between the floors using two feature car lifts, one located in the centre of the building, the other at the rear,” explains Park. “Both will run from the workshops up to the third floor.”

The top two floors of the building will hold offices.

The Audi centre is one of three of regional hubs, the first of which opened in Braehead, Glasgow, in 2004. Next will be Birmingham Audi, scheduled for completion in early 2007.
