Mercedes Car Showroom

Mercedes Car Showroom, Cardiff Gate Business Park

A new car dealership including start of the art servicing facilities constructed to the Mercedes Corporation specifications.

Extensive earthworks and ground profiling was undertaken to plateau the site for the building, car parking bays and access road.

The foundations for the building adopted an economical design solution utilizing a vibro stabilization technique to provide adequate bearing for a light reinforced pad and strip.

The super structure of the building consists of structural steelwork with exposed cellular beams to comply with the Mercedes corporate image and specifications.

The works included an extensive car sales display area with criblock retaining wall immediately adjacent the M4 corridor at Junction 30. Within our services, we provided co-ordination with the ongoing M4 widening works.
