Moneymore, Co. Derry

Modern commercial car sales show room in Northern Ireland

JA Hegarty Motors, in Moneymore, Co. Derry, approached us as their current garage workshop and forecourt had become very tired, and the facilities needed modernised.

The brief was to design a modern, sleek, eye-catching new building, retaining the existing forecourt where all the cars are displayed. Two new garage workshops were also required. The biggest hurdle, however, is that the existing garage & forecourt must be in use, to prevent loss of business, whilst the new premises are built.

We played around with materials, providing the client with a few colour options. The existing garage remained until the new garage was fully operable; the new garage being sited behind the original garage also meant that the existing forecourt was made larger, giving more valuable space for car sales.
