Dealership Building For Kia Motors

A new dealership building for around 22% of the cost of a traditional building
"...some 18 months later, we are happy.. a water tight, heated building which yes, was always planned as temporary, but looks as good as permanent can be."

“... looks as good as permanent can be”

Kia Motors (UK) Ltd and Phoenix both wanted to have a Kia dealer in Glasgow.

A traditional build was c£300k minimum. Given that Phoenix may have to surrender the lease on the site and relocate within 3 years, writing off £300k over 3 years was not a viable option.

We researched the market for alternatives and finally agreed a deal with Smart Space.

It made so much sense:

  • The cost was around 22% of a traditional building.
  • It could be erected, approved and operational with the minimum of fuss.
  • It could be operational in a matter of weeks not months.
  • At the appropriate time, it can be dismantled, re-sited and re-used.

From the point of view of Kia and Phoenix there couldn't be a simpler solution.

We took it, and now some 18 months later, we are happy to still be selling Kia product from a water tight, heated building which yes, was always planned as temporary, but looks as good as permanent can be.

I would recommend Smart Space temporary buildings to just about anyone.
