Hendy Group have used Kiwi Design for a number of years to help us continually improve our car dealership environments and bring them up to the latest specifications our franchise partners require and also make them a world class customer environment. We have developed a great working relationship with Kiwi across all levels of the business and they always deliver a high standard finish, usually exceeding specifications.  

From small office refurbishments to full blown new builds the Kiwi Design team always work very well on site with our teams meaning there is great communication, reduced disruption and a better experience for all our team and customers alike, and we all appreciate the end product that Kiwi Design provide us time after time. 

After so many years of working with Kiwi Design we believe they understand our needs, perhaps better than we do, which is important to us to help maintain our own high standards of quality in our operations.

full design service

Kiwi Design’s vast experience in car showrooms was a great asset in this project; Kiwi Designs project managers provided the full design for the new showroom, to match the Kia Corporate Branding.

Site investigations, including contamination surveys along with the necessary planning applications, were completed as part of the package.

complete fit out

Kiwi Design were responsible for all aspects of the build, including foundations, steelworks, cladding, glazing, electrics, lighting, plumbing, flooring. low energy LED lighting and inverter air conditioning units to save energy.

The exterior cladding was not available in the KIA brand RAL colour, so the Kiwi Team went the extra mile to respray the cladding to ensure an exact colour match.

maximising the use of space

The design prepared by Kia Design maximised the use of space within the showroom, housing 10 of the 11 car models currently available from Kia.

The showroom also included two offices, a service reception, comfortable customer waiting area with TV, music and coffee machine, small admin area, toilets and a small kitchen for staff use.
