This building is a purpose built car-dealership containing workshop, carwash and double height showroom space.
Hawthorn Geddes provided full services for this project, from initial geo-technical investigation, through civil, structural and architectural design and project managment.
It was necessary to replace site material to provide a good building platform, which was done by removing sub-standard material and replacing it with compacted fill.
The design was in accordance with the Toyota branding requirements, and incorporated systems such as water recycling and passive solar-heating.
Constructed by A-Line Construction over a period of 7 months, the building is constructed from cold-rolled steel framing with a combination of concrete pre-cast panel, ACM panel and glazed shop front wall cladding, with longrun profiled metal roof cladding.
