Bespoke fit-out for prestige Ferrari workshop
Since opening its doors to Ferrari owners back in 1964, Bob Houghton Ferrari has become one of the UK's oldest and most renowned Ferrari workshops. Dealing with everything from classic Ferrari 250 GTO's and 250 Lusso's through to modern day models such as the Ferrari 360 and Ferrari Enzo, Bob Houghton's has carried out work for some of the most recognised Ferrari owners from across the globe, even working on a number of bespoke projects for some of Ferrari's closest clients.
Because of this experience and the vast volume of prestige cars that pass through this Gloucestershire based workshop, Bob and his staff have always taken a great deal of pride in their workplace, gaining a reputation for providing a service unlike any other and delivering an experience that is as seamless as the cars they work on. Although this has always been the case and has been one of the major factors in growing the Bob Houghton brand, over recent years the workshop itself has become in need of a fresh which is why Dura were called in to help give it a modern re-fit.
When Dura first visited the centre for a site meeting in early 2013, Bob himself wanted to create a 'look and feel' in the workshop that perfectly portrayed the Ferrari brand. Keen to incorporate the stunning red Ferrari has become famous for, it was decided that the whole of the new workshop would incorporate a series of 5 identical technician bays that each have a selection of different tool storage base cabinets, general storage wall cabinets and integrated air, oil and water delivery reels to provide a well-equipped environment.
To provide the workshop with a unique finish that sets it apart, Dura then designed and incorporated a bespoke run of steel walling that spanned around the full length of the workshop. Finished once again in the rich Ferrari red, this run of walling incorporated a number of elements including each technician bay and an existing oil storage tank to expertly incorporate the whole of the centre and ensure the Ferrari theme is followed throughout.
