Project:Archibald & Shorter Jaguar/Landrover, Auckland
The new Jaguar and Rover dealership in Auckland involved the redevelopment of an existing building into one that met the prescriptive global branding requirements of the motor-vehicle marques. The result is a building that bears no resemblance at all to the original, with construction undertaken around an operational dealership. The project was Giltrap’s largest site redevelopment undertaken without vacating the site.
This was Trevor’s first project manager role; he was sole charge, working around a live environment, while satisfying both a demanding local client and global corporates (Jaguar and Landrover). An added pressure was that the dealership had to be completed by the British Lions tour, as Land Rover were a sponsor of the team.
Dominion Constructors had built prestigious brand showrooms before, but they viewed this one as having the strictest corporate identity that they had experienced. The European specified products and finishes were sometimes provided with little detail. Trevor had to figure out practical methods for implementing the strict level of finishing details required to meet the corporate identity, and/or find alternative product and fabrications that were either; available, buildable, or consentable. Trevor adopted a solutions-driven approach, with many of the adopted alternatives being his own proposals.
