Emergency Temporary Building for Pentagon Toyota

Temporary building specialist, Spaciotempo helped the Pentagon Toyota dealership in Rotherham back on its feet recently after its main car showroom was destroyed in the June floods.

Established in 1999, Pentagon Toyota employs more than 250 people and currently achieves sales in excess of £50 million per year from dealerships in Rotherham, Barnsley, Doncaster and Sheffield . The 30,000 sq ft Rotherham site houses around 100 new and used Toyota cars and vans.

With almost all its cars wrecked in the damage and faced with a massive clear up operation, the dealership was losing business rapidly and required a fast and cost effective solution.

With an extensive stock of buildings available for immediate rental, in just five days Spaciotempoâ supplied and installed a 300sqm emergency building complete with flooring and fully glazed windows to provide a temporary showroom to enable the dealership to continue trading whilst the damaged building underwent refurbishment.

Sheila Randall, Sales Manager at Toyota Rotherham says: “After the week of torrential rain when all we could do was watch our business suffer, the Spaciotempo solution allowed us start selling cars again in record time. “The speed and professionalism with which they responded to our enquiry were impressive and gave us the confidence to get on with the clear up while they erected the unit and as we were under threat of more rain, the solid construction of the unit also provided an extra comfort factor.

“The flooring system and glazed windows create a robust yet modern look and feel to the building, providing our customers with an impression of the quality on which Pentagon Toyota has built its reputation.”
