The building is situated between the company’s Jaguar and Lexus dealerships, making it an ideal location. “We now have a huge retail presence in the area. All the prestige and performance cars create a real draw for the public,” says Chris Amey, sales manager at Westover Sports Cars.
4D Design and Build worked as architects and builders on the project. Construction began in November 2005 with the first step involving the demolition of a large industrial building that had been standing empty for some time.
This caused some interference with the neighbouring dealer-ships due to all the dust created. “We were valeting the cars far more often than usual,” says Amey.
Left with the original steel frame, building began on the new cladding, shopfront and external works. “We have now got an environment where the sort of people looking to buy sports and prestige motor cars feel at home,” says Amey.
“And a beautifully done showroom environment does make it easier to sell!”
