HULL Audi has opened a new ‘green’ showroom in Hessle, featuring one of the most advanced building management systems in the industry.
The new showroom has provided 15 new jobs, and marks the completion of JCT600’s investment in the redevelopment of its Hull Audi dealership.
The expanded facilities allow for a 12 car showroom, incorporating such features as its vehicle configuration equipment, a large customer lounge and a children’s play area downstairs.
Hull Audi now has display space for 70 used vehicles, a 16-bay workshop with MOT facilities and a new five-bay valeting facility.
The new showroom’s management control system allows the energy usage to be controlled and monitored, and includes a roof mounted weather station which adjusts the window blinds.
The roof is also almost entirely covered in solar photovoltaic panels, which allows the showroom to generate its own electricity, and to sell any surplus back to the national grid.
Steven Kirby, head of business at JCT600’s Hull Audi dealership (pictured above), said: ‘The popularity of the Audi brand meant that we had simply outgrown our former premises. This has been a huge and complex project which has created a fantastic, spacious and high tech showroom for Audi customers which will greatly improve their experience when they visit us.’
Mark Taylor, group property director at JCT600, said: ‘After almost three years from planning to completion, we are proud to have completely transformed a run down, vacant site into a truly eye-catching building. Complete with Audi’s latest innovative ‘Terminal Architecture’ design incorporating striking exterior perforated aluminium panels, Hull now boasts one of the most modern, high-tech Audi dealerships in the UK.’
The new showroom is located on Saxon Way, Priory Park, opposite to JCT600’s previous Audi dealership.
