“... looks as good as permanent can be”
Kia Motors (UK) Ltd and Phoenix both wanted to have a Kia dealer in Glasgow.
A traditional build was c£300k minimum. Given that Phoenix may have to surrender the lease on the site and relocate within 3 years, writing off £300k over 3 years was not a viable option.
We researched the market for alternatives and finally agreed a deal with Smart Space.
It made so much sense:
- The cost was around 22% of a traditional building.
- It could be erected, approved and operational with the minimum of fuss.
- It could be operational in a matter of weeks not months.
- At the appropriate time, it can be dismantled, re-sited and re-used.
From the point of view of Kia and Phoenix there couldn't be a simpler solution.
We took it, and now some 18 months later, we are happy to still be selling Kia product from a water tight, heated building which yes, was always planned as temporary, but looks as good as permanent can be.
I would recommend Smart Space temporary buildings to just about anyone.
