About this project

We are delighted to have completed this project for Car Link. Delighting the customer throughout, from initial designs to final construction and finish.

Car Link was established in 2010 and are the approved RAC BuySure dealer for used cars in Dorset. They initially contacted Spaceway to discuss their options for converting an industrial unit to a leading car showroom.

Originally a refrigerated storage facility, this good sized industrial unit needed to be converted to a welcoming and useable workspace. Allowing easy access for vehicles and customers.

Planning & Design

Spaceway produced an extensive set of plans and design concepts for how this building could be converted to become an exciting and welcoming space for Car Link’s many existing and new customers.

The front of the building was adapted and enhanced by the addition of a glass curtain wall, to flood natural light throughout the building and across two levels. Glass sliding doors were installed in front of the roller shutter door to allow easy access for vehicles into and out of the showroom.

Inside we designed and added a large mezzanine floor. This specially designed and reinforced floor needed to both by practical and inconspicuous. The steel structure for the mezzanine columns was fully clad for fire protection and installed aesthetically to blend seamlessly into the showroom surrounds and suspended ceilings.

Additionally, the mezzanine floor needed to integrate with the car lift, allowing vehicles to be safely transported between floors, as well as incorporating the existing office spaces. As well as adding a staircase to access the upper level.

The glass curtain wall really does flood natural light into both levels of the building, as you can see from the images and the video below.

It’s no good having just an empty industrial building you need a concept for space, a design, an infrastructure and someone to build it. Designing something like this from scratch with someone who’s willing to invest in your ideas, Spaceway is your perfect partner.


The project was designed to meet our specific requirements which included fitting in 20 more additional workstations using the existing space. The design works well and has met our expectations fully, we will continue to use Spaceway, they do a good job.


The project was challenging to say the least with the removal of 280 workstations and fitting of 400 new ones, along with collaboration areas and 400 bespoke lockers over two weekends, but Spaceway managed to complete this along with office refurbishment works on time and to an excellent standard.
