ŠKODA West End Garage came up against logistical, staffing and capacity issues with their Bannockburn facility, it was quickly realised that this site had been outgrown and a new modern facility was required. Alltec Construction worked closely with ŠKODA West End Garage from the outset helping procure and establish the Forthside Way site. Once the site was secured, Alltec Construction were appointed as Principal Contractor on a Design & Build contract to construct all aspects of the proposed ŠKODA garage.
The works comprised; Site clearance of vegetation and debris, installation of; tubular steel driven piles, ring beam foundation with concrete slab, steel portal frame with purlins and staircases, roof and wall cladding, curtain walling including windows and doors, sectional roller shutter doors, internal fit-out, mechanical and electrical design and installation including biomass boiler system, state of the art garage workshop, hard and soft landscaping both on and off site, and all new utility service connections with all associated testing.
Alltec Construction handed over the new purpose-built retailer facility to Skoda West End Garage to whom officially unveiled with a grand opening. The new site located on Forthside Way is just half a mile from the City Centre and vastly improves transport links and footfall to the showroom. The immediate area surrounding the site has gone through a regeneration in recent years and has now become a destination point for retail and leisure thus providing great amenities to the new site. The premises incorporates a new eight car showroom and seven ramp MOT/ workshop garage with the latest ŠKODA plant and equipment including 4 wheel alignment, adaptive cruise control and lane guidance calibration facilities.
