Volvo/Kia Showroom and Workshop, TMS Motors


The brief

Tapper Interiors were appointed as main contractor to carry out a complete internal and external refurbishment of the showroom and workshop areas.

What we did

We transformed an empty building in desperate need of a refurbishment into a modern functional car dealership with state of the art workshop facilities to match.

Works included

  • Demolition and strip out works
  • New steelwork to support facade cladding
  • External Facade upgrades including new cladding and rendering
  • New parking areas and footpaths
  • Alterations to existing curtain walling to form new entrances
  • Overclad of existing roofs
  • New partitions to reconfigure internal layouts
  • New WC and kitchen areas
  • Mechanical and Electrical Installation including Air conditioning
  • Suspended ceilings
  • Soft and hard floor coverings, including workshop floor painting
  • Overspray of existing curtain walling internally and externally
  • Decorations

How we made a difference

While carrying out the internal and external refurbishment project we worked closely with TMS, making several recommendations of ways to enhance the specification and overall finish of the project. We also recommended over cladding existing roof areas as a cost effective solution to overcome a multitude of leaks. Towards the end of the project we ensured that TMS maintained business continuity whilst relocating from their old premises to their new home. We also liaised with and programmed several of TMS specialist contractors including the workshop equipment installation which meant on handover date the whole showroom and workshop was ready for trading from day one.

“I want to take this opportunity to put in writing how impressed I have been with the work your company has carried out for us. It was a major development but your team from start to finish have been tremendous in guiding us through 6 months of build time. The conduct and professionalism of your team are to be commended and it was a pleasure to deal with a well run company that does exactly what they said they would do. The end result has left us with a fantastic retail facility.

I would have no hesitation in recommending your company to others.”
