The construction of the new Ipswich Audi dealership has been completed and handed over to the Marriott Motor Group.
The £8 million building, which opens its doors to the public on Monday 5 December, marks a major milestone for the family-run motor group; a business which runs a number of vehicle franchises throughout Suffolk and Norfolk, employing 500 people.
Paul Barnard, Managing Director commented: “This project is the largest property investment that the company has made and we wanted to make sure we got it right. That was our reason for commissioning two local businesses; building design consultancy, David Clarke & Associates and Barnes Construction, to carry out the work, as we already have a long standing relationship with both that goes back more than two generations of the Barnard family.”
The four-acre site is next door to Waitrose and John Lewis on Futura Park in Ipswich and the dealership houses a 16-car showroom and service centre, together with offices and space that can be rented out for business events.
