Project Award: Jaguar Land Rover Dealership, Basingstoke
New client, MCS Group, has awarded Speedclad the contract for design, supply and installation of the cladding and Planar glazed facade on this new Jaguar Land Rover dealership in Hampshire.
Speedclad's contract, which is being managed from our Regional Office in Birmingham, is the beginning of a longer-term strategy into this specific sector and will be the company's first Pilkington Planar installation. The Pilkington Planar glazing system is an innovative product that allows architects to build entire structures out of glass, designing appealing workspaces that maximise daylight and provide a feeling of space. The system will maximise visibility of the vehicle showrooms with a near-invisible barrier to the outside environment. As an approved installer of the Pilkington Planar system, Speedclad will be using double-glazed units fitted to glass structural fins.
A special colour, Sunshine Grey, developed for the Jaguar Land Rover corporate branding, will finish the ACM which Speedclad will install to the showroom facade, and the majority of the project will utilise a TATA composite panel also in a special colour; Champagne Silver.
This £4.5 million dealership in Basingstoke will combine a twin franchise showroom with aftersales and service workshop and include rooftop parking.
