At the site, based at the Axis Business Park in the city’s Newbridge area, Stewart Milne Construction will be responsible for all internal and external works on the 30,000 square foot premises. The dealership will feature a 12-car show room split over two levels; a 14-bay workshop incorporating the latest facilities and technology; and an extensive 71-car used car display.
Commenting on the new dealership, John Clark, chairman and managing director of the John Clark Motor Group, said: “This is a very high-profile site, close to where three motorways converge, so we wanted to make sure that the new dealership makes a strong statement about Pentland Land Rover as the main dealer for the area.
“It is also a substantial site that can accommodate considerably expanded facilities that will enable Stuart Miller and his team at Pentland, to provide existing and new customers with a high level of service.”
Noel Staunton, regional director for Stewart Milne Construction said: “In the current climate, it’s encouraging to see companies expanding their business operations and we’re looking forward to working with John Clark Motor Group on the development of its new Pentland Land Rover dealership in Edinburgh. The project will be a great addition to our commercial portfolio and we will be liaising closely with the client to ensure it is delivered successfully.”
Having commenced this month, the project is due for completion in December 2011.
