Caddick Construction completes work this month on the £6.5 million flagship Mercedes-Benz showroom and workshop at Kingmoor Park in Carlisle.
Completed on behalf of dealer Sytner, the state-of-the-art facility will create over 20 new jobs in the area.
Heavily glazed for maximum impact, the showroom provides a stage for the high quality vehicles and includes customer amenities such as a coffee lounge and merchandise shop, as well as a drive-through facility, cosmetic repair, MOT studio and wet/dry valet with extensive car parking.
Replacing a previous facility in Rosehill Industrial Estate, the new prominent location within the city’s enterprise zone offers an opportunity for the Sytner team to provide its clients with a higher level of service and attention.
John Buchan, Group Project Manager at Sytner Group, said:
“We are delighted with our new state-of-the art facility in Carlisle that represents the first of the Mercedes Benz new Corporate Identity in the UK”
Barry Crooks, Head of Business at Mercedes-Benz of Carlisle, said:
“The new site is a world apart from our previous home which we had completely outgrown and is bigger and better in absolutely every respect. Caddick have helped us build a real show-stopping environment which is now much more befitting of the brand we represent. It includes an 18-bay workshop which will be better able to meet the demands of our customers when it comes to servicing and MOTs. Outside our approved used car display will rise from 40 to 90 cars to offer more choice than ever before and on-site parking has increased enormously which I know will delight our customers.”
Derek Billows, Contracts Manager at Caddick Construction, said:
“The showroom looks fantastic in such a notable location. We have worked closely with Sytner to ensure the highest quality environment, using our wealth of expertise in delivering automotive developments across the north of England.”
Caddick has recently delivered showrooms for The Car People, in Warrington, Jaguar Land Rover in Kendal and Vertu Motors’ Farnell Jaguar Land Rover in Leeds.
The automotive team is currently on site constructing the £41million Jaguar Landrover, Mini and BMW showrooms at the Trafford City Development, as well as JCT Porche in Newcastle.
