Bells Motor Group
We have always enjoyed our work designing showrooms for the motor industry and we were very proud to discover in the April edition of The Financial Times an article which praised our recently completed extension to Bells Motor Group in Northampton.
The facility, designed by Morton Wykes Kramer’s partner Jim Morton, was identified as significantly contributing to the Volvo dealership achieving this year’s converted Volvo Quality Award. The award is only presented to a select few dealerships which can demonstrate quality throughout all their operations.
The article describes how the new £1 million pound state of the art service centre has made Bells Motor Group into a ‘flagship dealership not just for the (Volvo) brand but for the industry’. The alterations designed by Jim and constructed by Warwick Burt include a new ten bay workshop which is fully equipped with the latest one man specialist MOT equipment.
The dealerships customers have the opportunity to view the state of the art workshop and Bell’s skilled technicians at work via a unique specially designed customer area which features a floor to ceiling viewing window from the service center reception into the workshop. In the words of director Clive Bell it provides ‘a window into the world under the bonnet’ and has proved very popular with customers.
By overhauling the showrooms workshop and increasing the connection between the service reception and the superb showroom we are very please to have assisted in the dealerships success. We are also very pleased that the dealership have approached us for assistance on their next potential venture – we’ll keep you posted!
