Caddick Construction has recently completed a £2.5m extension and refurbishment of the Porsche Sales and Service Centre on the Silverlink Estate at Wallsend on behalf of JCT600 Ltd.
The Silver Link Park project signals JCT600’s long term investment with the German sports car maker. The company has represented Porsche for more than five decades across the region opening another Porsche centre near Stockton Teesside in 2017, again refurbished and redeveloped by Caddick.
The recent works included the refurbishment of the existing showroom with capacity to display 16 of the luxury cars, a plush handover lounge, plus capacity for 23 approved used cars.
The workshop was extended to accommodate two customer Direct Dialogue Service Bays and valeting facilities which have doubled in size. The works also included all external areas.
A 9-strong Caddick team worked on the 9-month project with the official opening taking place next month.
Caddick Construction Managing Director Andrew Murray said: “This was an interesting project on a very busy live site that has resulted in an exceptional showroom and a fitting home for such a luxury car brand. We are delighted to have delivered the project on time and managed to keep disruption for both staff and customers to a minimum during the work.”
