To comply with newly introduced international corporate standards, an upgrade to the façade of the Causeway Bay showroom and car park was required.
MAP was appointed in June 2015 and the upgrade was completed in October 2015, a period of just four months.
The work was approved through the Minor Works Ordinance and required eight submissions, all of which were handled by MAP.
Low iron high optical clarity glass was specified for the shop front and new windows were added to the first floor where previously there had been a solid wall. The supplementary windows allow for the display of an additional four cars. Back lit image panels were added to the ground floor car park exit which has transformed the space into an alternate showroom.
Black fritted glass was used for the spandrel panels. Thin porcelain tiles of 3mm were used for the stair façade and entrance to give a metal panel look but still comply with the MWO regulations.
New signage was provided by a specialist fabricator from China and installed by the main contractor.
The new entry experience is entirely upgraded, creating a feeling of openness and anticipation which heightens appeal for customers as they enter the showroom.
This successful refit was completed on time and on budget.
