SDA were appointed by the Client to advise upon the building services installations for the refurbishment of two existing car dealerships, in order to create new automotive workshops and teaching facilities for the College.
SDA initially carried out a general, non-intrusive, condition survey and prepared a feasibility report for the Client in 2013.
The areas included a 1050m2, two storey, car showroom and administration facility, with a single storey service block attached, and a separate 340m2, single storey, car showroom and administration with integral services bays.
The buildings are located on adjacent sites.
This resulted in SDA being appointed to prepare a performance specification for the refurbishment works. Whilst the majority of engineering services will be new, in some instances existing systems are to be altered, refurbished, enhanced and reused in order to minimise the Client’s expenditure.
