Caddick Construction announces completion of eco-friendly car dealership
Thursday, 20 October 2016
Yorkshire-based business, Caddick Construction, has announced the completion of a multi-million pound Evans Halshaw Vauxhall car dealership.
The construction team began work at the site on the corner of Gelderd Road and Leeds City Ring Road at the start of January, and completed the project on time last month.
The spacious 20,000 sq ft dealership houses a showroom, reception area, office space, workshop, valet and parts department. The project has also achieved a Very Good BREEAM Rating, as did the Group’s Stratstone BMW/ MINI building next door, through the incorporation of low energy and high efficiency lighting and high efficiency heat pumps to heat and cool the showroom. Photovoltaics on the roof contribute to 10% of the energy requirement, and solar controlled glazing panels in the showroom minimise solar gain.
Andrew Murray, Managing Director at Caddick Construction, comments: “We’re proud to add this Vauxhall facility to the list of state-of-the-art auto dealerships that we’ve delivered over the last few years. The project has been a fantastic opportunity to enhance our portfolio of automotive construction work, working once again with Pendragon, the UK’s leading automotive retailer, has been a pleasure.”
John Cooke, Dealer Principal at Evans Halshaw Vauxhall Leeds, said: “We’re really excited to open this new venture in Leeds, providing a state-of-the-art customer experience. The high quality design of the dealership mixed with cutting-edge Vauxhall models and our dedicated team of experts means we’re confident our dealership will go from strength-to-strength. I look forward to welcoming customers both old and new.”
