Inchcape, Volkswagen, Exeter
Sands were appointed by Inchcape in 2013 to provide infrastructure design services for the relocation of their Exeter Volkswagen dealership.
Our brief included the design of the external works and drainage associated with the proposed showroom, workshop and valet buildings.
Various constraints and requirements were established during the design stage which included the design of a parking area over an existing high pressure gas main within a floodplain and a shallow surface water attenuation system within the car park construction.
This involved significant amounts of communication with the Client, statutory undertakers and numerous other professional disciplines.
The dealership was opened to the public in July 2015 in a prominent location on the edge of Matford Green Business Park.
