Ford Transit Showroom Extension – Peterborough
Bowman Riley were commissioned to design a new extension to an existing Ford car showroom in Peterborough to create additional space to showcase their range of transit vans which were formerly just sat on the forecourt.
Appointed by Woodgreen Construction under a design and build contract, Bowman Riley’s role involved the preparation of the planning application submission, building regulation information construction drawings and site attendance.
The building comprised of a structural steel frame with wall and roof cladding including a structural deck and aluminium curtain walling with glazed vehicle access doors. The fit out comprised the installation of comfort cooling and Ford approved lighting with extensive ceramic floor tiling and interior decorations throughout. External works included the re-grading and re-laying the existing block paving and the installation of stainless steel bollards.
In order to minimise disruption to the fully operational site and to allow trading to continue whilst the project progressed, we worked with the contractor to carefully plan the works.
To ensure the project was delivered efficiently, the work was undertaken using the BIM software Revit. This facilitated the delivery of the scheme on time and to budget within the 11 week programme.
