Background

The Zagame Group contracted Kennett Pty Ltd to complete a refurbishment and extension to an existing showroom on Glen Osmond Road. Kennett Pty Ltd was referred to the Zagame Group by a sub-contractor due to the strong relationship with the sub-contractor and the successful completion of previous projects of similar nature.

This is the first luxury car showroom that the Zagame Group has brought across from Melbourne, so it was a privilege for Kennett to be involved with such a prestigious project. The facility is to house McLaren and Lamborghinis, and a high level of quality finishes were incorporated in the build to showcase the luxury vehicles.

Project Detail

  $2m refurbishment and extension over two levels

  This included the refurbishment of underground workshops and washbay to allow for luxury vehicle servicing

  The refurbishment of two showrooms, offices, lunch room, reception area and café

  Refurbishment of external façade, car park and display terrace

  Structural steel and lightweight cladding extension

Construction Detail

The works included the refurbishment of the old Belcar showrooms and service workshops, and the construction of a steel and lightweight cladding extension. High quality finishes were installed, including tiles from Italy, two-pack wall panels, polished plaster, feature ceiling battens, etc.

Challenges

  The tight programme to complete the works was a challenge for all trades who all worked hard to achieve

  Ensuring the works were completed to a high quality of finish, whilst pushing to complete the works in the congested timeframe

  The build and design evolved whilst works were being carried out, to gain a final product that met the expectations for both McLaren and Lamborghini brands

Outcomes

  All trades performed extremely well to complete the works within the programme, with a high level of finish and minimal defects

  The finished product met all client expectations

  Good relationship established with a great client and architect
