Kent’s largest pre owned car sales site

E P Architects have worked with Big Motoring World over several years providing Architects services to enable expansion of this significant motor trade business in Kent. This started with the initial expansion of the site at West Malling following the acquisition of the adjacent site. This involved the extension of the existing building and with careful external design created the ‘house style’ design for the company.

The continuing expansion of the business led to a search for suitable sites with good access to motorways. After much searching and detailed negotiations with Tonbridge and Malling planning department a large site at the top of Blue Bell Hill became the preferred site. This involved work on a site located in a sensitive area.

The site now boasts a high tech sales building and a separate valeting building. These are designed as steel framed buildings with in the ‘house style’ silver Micro-Rib cladding and incorporating the latest detailing to achieve high levels of insulation. The remainder of the site is laid out as an open car display for in excess of 1200 cars. This area incorporates the latest electric charging points, anticipating the future move to electric cars.

E P Architects worked closely with this client to ensure efficient use of the site, reinforcing the sales strategy whilst maximising the open parking area.
