K2 managed the successful, fast track completion of Europe’s largest Mercedes-Benz car dealership, a £70m flagship building, in just 18 months.
Immediately appointing an enabling works contractor enabled key risks in the ground to be addressed while the design was developed and the main contractor procured in parallel.
The three storey, 350,000 ft2 dealership, developed for Hong Kong based firm Lei Shing Hong, displays over 150 new and used vehicles indoors, with a further 300 cars outdoors and has a 32-bay servicing facility, body and paint repair centre, café, office space and canteen – with extensive parking, landscaping and a new road junction.
The award winning dealership was built on a 10.5-acre derelict brownfield site. As a fast track project, design was overlapped with construction which allowed the project to be delivered in just 18 months from site possession to opening.
