HWM Aston Martin - New Showroom Refurbishment - Walton on Thames, Surrey

The owners of HWM Aston Martin in Walton on Thames, Surrey, noting the resurgence of Aston Martin as a brand and its evolution into a world class volume luxury car maker, required a project management team to undertake the refurbishment of the building interior and exterior, and design and install the new showroom interior.

Gifford Grant was selected, largely on the basis of its ability to offer a single point of contact for the entire operation.

Initial work entailed considerable investigation and remedial works to the structure of the building, which had survived numerous owners and consequent changes of use over a large part of the 20th Century. Concurrent with this phase was incorporation of the new Aston Martin Retail Design Programme into the traditional shell at the same time as renewal of outdated drainage and other services.

Energy efficient heating and air conditioning was installed; some underfloor heating, with the controls inter-linked, supplements the main air conditioning system in winter months.

Specialist interior finishes include a book-matched Travertine marble floor covering, specialist lighting and frameless glass partitioning. Gifford Grant's designers also retained one of the main roof trusses from the old structure providing a dramatic “period” feature.

Eye catching exterior lighting was designed and installed together with a state of the art security and monitoring system.


Projects for HWM Aston Martin workshop and HWM Alfa Romeo showroom were awarded to Gifford Grant following this project's success. If you are considering new showrooms or workshop facilities, contact us now on 01252 816188.
