Marshall Motor Group, a top 10 UK motor dealer group founded in 1909 in Cambridge, is planning to redevelop its Ford Commercial Vehicles showroom in the next few years. In the meantime, it wished to upgrade its current facilities and needed a cost-effective interim solution that had the look, feel and properties of a permanent building without the associated costs.
Smart-Space provided Marshall with a 15m x 25m bespoke semi-permanent building.
The structure supplied features windows, lighting, office space, a high roof and bi-fold doors to enable easy vehicle access.
Heat loss concerns were alleviated with the Smart-Space solution as the 40mm insulated steel roof and 40mm steel wall cladding, retains substantially more heat compared to other temporary buildings with PVC fabric roofs.
Marshall chose Smart-Space because of the durability, flexibility and variety of its product options, and because it needed a bespoke solution delivered within a tight timescale. The entire project took just a week to complete from start to finish.
