Trebor Developments LLP
The headquarters for Lex Autolease combined all of their operational functions in a single location in central Coventry, developing a brown field site beset with contamination challenges. The design of the centre combines a signature main building with the fit out designed specifically for the benefit of the end-user client. Lex wanted a distinctive building that would attract customers and the prominent location provided an ideal solution with a podium constructed to elevate the sales building to give visibility from the arterial road network around it. The brief for the £7m project required a dominant sales centre surrounded by strategically located operational centres reflecting the journey for vehicles taken into the centre, checked, upgraded and finally released for sale:
- Sales Centre and Headquarters – 13,000ft²
- Workshop – 11,000ft²
- Vac Bays – 2,800ft²
- Paint booths and alloys – 2,300ft²
- Smart bays & wash booths – 3,600ft²
- Photo booths – 700ft²
- Inspection bays – 2,000ft²
- Gatehouse – 1,900ft²
The family of building was set amongst extensive car parking and circulation which extended to over 32,000m².
Works were completed in May 2014.
