Leeds-based APP Construction has secured a £6m contract to build a new car showroom for Stratstone Jaguar Land Rover in Cardiff for Pendragon plc.
Work is due to start on the 26-week fast track project at the end of April. The project team also includes SRA Architects, structural engineer Eastwood & Partners and project manager Synergy LLP.
The scheme involves the redevelopment of the former Citroen garage on a one-hectare site on Hadfield Road in the Welsh capital. It will see the existing workshop refurbished and the current showroom demolished to make way for a modern new build Jaguar Land Rover 18-car display area with customer handover bays for both brands, service drive-in and valeting facilities.
This will be the third Jaguar Land Rover dealership for APP Construction. Earlier this month a new £5m Swansway Jaguar Centre opened in Crewe, and the contractor is currently on site for Land Rover in Pickering, North Yorkshire building a new £3m showroom and service centre due to open in August.
APP Construction director John White said: "We're delighted to be continuing our association with the UK's biggest car maker Jaguar Land Rover and look forward to the speedy delivery of this latest project in Wales."
