GWR Vehicle Hire
Vehicle hire and service facilities
This vehicle hire administration and engineering facility was built by Dove Construction following competitive tender and on the recommendation of the commercial agent handling the contract.
The main building was constructed for the developer of the site, with additional work being done for the eventual occupiers, GWR Vehicle Hire. As part of the Northgate Network, one of the UK's largest suppliers of light commercial vehicles, GWR Vehicle Hire invested an additional £15,000 to adapt this general engineering facility to meet their specific requirements.
Dove Construction were instrumental in building the vehicle bay servicing area and the second storey offices incorporating a reception area, storage space and canteen. External hard standings and a prepared stone grounding for vehicle parking completed the bespoke fit out.
The building's conventional steel portal frame was locally engineered with a mixture of masonry, double-skinned cladding and roof.
