The external structures of the new state-of-the-art BMW and MINI retail centres, on Leeds Ring Road, are now in place following the installation of the roofs.
Caddick Construction has recently completed the shells of both buildings with external cladding now well underway as the project nears completion.
The new retail centres, which will see the relocation of both BMW and MINI from Sheepscar Interchange to the corner of Gelderd Road and Leeds Ring Road, is set to open this summer.
Neil Murray, project manager at Caddick Construction, said: “The construction of both retail centres is progressing well. The MINI roof was relatively simple to install due to the composite panel construction, but BMW roof was a more technical process.
“The built up insulation and single ply membrane was required to be completely dry to install but with Leeds experiencing better weather lately the team were able to move ahead quite quickly.”
Caddick’s attention is now focused on the external cladding, which includes curtain walling and windows, while the drainage work is almost complete, with the majority of kerbing now in place. The large car park area has also been tarmacked.
Inside the buildings, the mechanical and electrical works are well underway and decoration has also commenced.
The prestigious new BMW & MINI retail centres will also incorporate dedicated BMW i, BMW M and MINI JCW customer areas designed to provide an environment where customers can explore the ranges with ease.
Trevor Fussey, national franchise director, Stratstone BMW & MINI, said: “It’s gearing up to be an exciting time as we prepare to move into this excellent new facility which will enable us to ensure outstanding levels of customer service.
“We are very much looking forward to welcoming customers into the new home of BMW and MINI in Leeds.”
