Gates of Harlow FordStore™
Working with R G Carter, Munro provided the Mechanical and Electrical installation on this new 6000 square foot flagship FordStore™ for Gates of Harlow in Essex. This new build project consists of a state of the art showroom, an 11 vehicle workshop and MOT bay, offices for parts and service managers and sales team members, as well as a two storey, basement car park for valeting and customer preparation.
On top of air conditioning, radiator heating, heat recovery unit ventilation, BMS control system, data, hot and cold water services, CCTV and Fire alarms, Munro also installed a high quality lighting system to accentuate the cars’ aesthetics. This included architectural lighting in the showroom, on white powder coated trunking, external lighting columns and a smartlight lighting control system.
During the project, it soon became apparent that the BMS system would not be capable of meeting the customer needs. Munro reengineered the BMS and came up with a workable solution that could be implemented as part of our added value.
This £800,000 M&E installation came together to produce a visually stunning showroom which was completed within the tight 16 week programme. A key objective for the client was to complete the project in time for the new ‘67’ plate registration on September 1st 2017.
