This 1,000m² facility, located in Frankton’s shopping centre, consists of a showroom, office space and vehicle servicing centre, with state of the art workstations and hoists.
Keeping pace with the service requirements of their growing clientele in the South had become a challenge for Invercargill based Macaulay Motors. The population growth in Queenstown, in particular, has affected business demand over the past two decades. As a result, a new branch of the franchise was to be opened, offering parts, servicing and vehicle sales to the Queenstown public.
After an ideal site for the extension was found, Frame Architects drew up design plans, which became included in the open tender. Based on our submitted price, which factored in Frame Architect's design, Calder Stewart won the bid for its Central Otago construction team.
The 1,000m² facility, located along the 5-mile shopping centre on Grant Road, Frankton, is modest in size for what it boasts. The build consists of a compact 190m² showroom and a vehicle servicing centre at the back, equipped with state-of-the-art workstations and hoists, capable of servicing eight cars. Additional offices and utility spaces were also included within the final design.
The final facility sits on a 2,700m² site, offering space to present the client's new and used vehicle inventory to the public. Calder Stewart handled nearly all aspects of the construction process, from site works and showrooms to office fit-outs.
