Creating a workshop that matches the reputation

After recently carrying out a full design and re-fit for Audi Stafford’s sister site in Stoke upon Trent, Dura were chosen to create a fresh and functional design for the existing workshop that brought a number of factors into consideration. With topics such as aesthetics, technician retention, corporate identity, and customer perception on a precise list of requirements, after sales manager Steve Hampton wanted to bring his dealership in to line with the other dealership and create a ‘centre of excellence’ that staff and customers would be proud of.


With that in mind Dura’s expert team of designers set about creating a solution for Audi Stafford that fitted in perfectly with the layout of the existing workshop. Working around the existing dimensions of the building as well as previously installed lifts and exhaust extraction points, Dura created a 32 metre long system that spanned the entire length of the service centre.


Incorporating a number of features such as organised tool storage, general bulk storage, IT hardware and integrated fluid delivery, the new solution provided a series of 8 identical technician bays to create an efficient and functional working environment. In addition to this Steve required 2 separate bays that were fitted out with a variety of bespoke pieces as well as a separate waste oil drainer storage area that could be used by each of the technicians within the centre.
