This property-led car rental sourced land developed from our property portfolio, has the capacity to store 210 cars and comes equipped with an automatic car washing system.
Our property team led the programme for Thrifty as a location near Christchurch International Airport was needed to service their clientele. Our team helped secure them a suitable site sourced from our landholdings. We followed this with a Design Build solution to improve Thrifty’s business operations.
One of the exciting challenges of the construction process was obtaining airport authority permits for the use of a boom crane, which had to be kept to an agreed maximum working height due to airport runway changes.
The finished 800m2 facility has the capacity to store 210 cars and is equipped with an automatic car washing system. Environmental and safety considerations were significant factors in this project. Sump and drainage pumps were fitted, with specialised filters, to clear the area. The fuel system, built around a 10,000-litre ULP storage tank, was also equipped with specialised safety protection to bring it to code standards.
