Fellow Trade Garage Equipment member T.R Bullworthy have recently completed a development for Northgate Volkswagen’s dealership situated in Bury St Edmunds. As part of VW’s new requirements for all of their national dealers showrooms and workshops to be extended. Northgate contacted T.R. Bullworthy’s sales and planning team to quote for an expansion of their existing workshop area. As well as an initial quote for the refurbishment project, Northgate also requested a quotation to provide equipment for a completely new extension to the existing workshop consisting of 6 bays.
The new workshop extension, which has since been titled ‘Stage 1’, involved the installation of six in-ground Rotary lifts, Dura workshop cabinets complete with air, oil and water dispensing for each bay, a PC oil monitoring system, and a new Sacatec exhaust extraction system. Bullworthy engineers completed the installation of the ‘Stage 1’ extension at the end of April and Northgate has since moved in, allowing the refurbishment to start on the old workshop and showroom. Bullworthy will be back to Northgate to commence with the new equipment within the existing and refurbished workshop (titled ‘Stage 2’) due to complete in August. This refit will feature a new ATL (Automatic Test Lane) MOT bay as well as heavy duty Rotary 2 post lifts, Dura cabinets, all new air, oil and water services, and a new Sacatec exhaust extraction system.
