The bespoke design consists of a car showroom area which can hold nine display vehicles, a servicing workshop, external sales forecourt, café and catering kitchen.

Director at Silverstone, Richard Farrey, commented: “We are very pleased to have been instructed on our third project management instruction for Pulman Group.

“We have recently completed a £500,000 refurbishment of Pulman’s flagship Volkswagen car showroom on Abbey Road in Durham. Having gained valuable experience in the motor retail industry we hope these projects will lead to further instructions within this thriving sector.”

Mike Pulman, Managing Director of Pulmans, added: “It’s great to see the structure of the new showroom starting to take shape and we are looking forward to launching the new ŠKODA retail concept.”

He continues: “The new showroom will be state-of-the art and offer our customers a fantastic experience.”
