Suttons Motors Group are one of the leading automotive retail groups in Australia, with a large focus on car servicing. Maintaining the operations of the car servicing workshop throughout construction was crucial to this projects success.
The project involved constructing a new suspended concrete slab over an existing car showroom. Extending the existing Level 1 slab, construction of a new lift and a new ‘pop up’ roof to improve natural lighting.
Northrop worked closely with the builder and architect. A temporary falsework framing system supported the framework for the slab and allowed workers to work underneath. The pop up roof was built directly over the main double height showroom floor prior to the existing roof sheet being removed.
The showroom was closed for 1 day which was substantially less than the client had anticipated. The showroom floor space has been increased dramatically and the new pop up roof provides excellent natural lighting to what was previously a dark-ish showroom.
