It’s widely accepted that seeing a product image in a catalogue or online can result in huge customer engagement and sales. Imagery is an art form now. However, to see a product in the flesh can have even greater outcomes, which is why the showroom is of such great importance. It’s an instrumental tool in promoting products and services. Having products displayed in a showroom can help a customer visualise how they will benefit from purchasing and help gently persuade them more favourably towards your products and/services.
We know that a well-designed showroom layout is one of the key strategies to your business’s success. We can tailor build your new showroom or renovate your existing showroom to drive additional sales, maximize use of square footage and foster positive attitudes within staff and customers, alike.
Automotive showroom construction comes in a variety of different designs, finishes and quality. Highlands Master Builders can assist you with your showroom, offices and even the garage workshop construction or renovations. Our experts can accommodate just about any varying feature and design need that you may have.
Depending on your market and business, we can build or renovate your showroom to provide the image your customers associate with your brand. These showrooms differ from small offices with open-air concrete display, to prestige fully enclosed showrooms with customer lounges and purpose-built ramps and platforms for display. In our experience, the showroom serves as the anchor for your vehicle lot and it’s imperative that the aesthetics of the building promote the appeal of the car buying experience.
Highlands Master Builders can build a column-free, open concept showroom with spans up to 100 feet. We can also incorporate custom design layouts, such as luxury lounge areas for customers, partitioning offices and areas for heavy machinery storage. We combine a metal building system with a wide array of exterior finishes like ACMs, IMPs, EIFS and other building products such as glass and masonry, ensuring your building will be equipped with a unique look to showcase your fleet of vehicles. We can design your automotive building with a flexible layout for office spaces and multi-bay structures for service centers as well as accommodate for roll-up garage doors.
With space requirements in mind, the design of your automotive building is completely customizable to your project ideas.
Retail showrooms come in a variety of sizes, from relatively small suites in flex/tech buildings, strip plazas and retail centres to stand-alone structures that offer several acres of floor space.
Retail construction and renovation is both a creative and commercial discipline, combining several areas of expertise to successfully design and construct a retail building that will optimally showcase products and support a business’s continued growth. At Highlands Master Builders, our expert design and build team knows how much the layout and construction of a retail showroom influences a customer’s behavior, the store’s flow, merchandise placement, ambiance and how much revenue is being generated per square foot.
Our fully-integrated team of multidisciplinary specialists are charged with optimizing and reducing the time to convert each new build from inception to completion, so you can begin getting a return on your investment. We can build a retail space that’s both modern and industrial with high tech architecture, open suspended grid ceilings, significant electrical wiring that support dozens of different types of lighting technologies, displayed in real-world commercial / industrial settings. We think out-of-the-box and can help you incorporate your brand in the showroom’s new design. For example, if you are a retailer with more than one location, we can integrate a blend of steel building construction and tilt-up construction so that it is an architectural factor consistent from location to location. This establishes a single “look” that customers can associate with your brand and product selection.
Depending on your location and what is being done, a permit might be required or it may not. If a permit is required for your project, we will obtain the permit, handle all inspections, make sure everything is built to code, and that the project and process satisfies all requirements to the letter of the law. If a permit is not required, we will still ensure top quality craftsmanship and work that exceeds code requirements and BC Homeowner Protection Office guidelines.
Important materials are specified in the contract. All materials are covered, however, as substitutions are sometimes unavoidable (lots of bricks run out, for example, colors of materials are sometimes no longer made), we make it clear that an equal substitution will be made but only upon your approval. For items such as lighting fixtures or doorknobs that you have not chosen when the contract is signed, a budget, called an allowance, is determined in the contract to cover exactly what will be spent on them.
A change order is a written statement signed by the customer authorizing the contractor to do additional work not included in the original contract. The change order should be signed before the additional work is started. A change order also may be written when a contractor comes across any unforeseen damage or problem, or when a permit or jurisdictional authority requires additional work. In any event, we will always do our best to prevent change orders and minimize any financial impact they may have.
We have done many renovations in the past, but Highlands crew was outstanding. It is rare to find a construction company that has so much knowledge and experience and has the leadership to see a project through from the beginning to the end. They were always onsite, early in the morning. They were pleasant, polite and always cleaned up at the end of the day. We were actually sad when they left, as they were like family friends staying at our house!
If you want a great crew, outstanding workmanship, transparent and easy to understand billing this is THE company! We would hire Andrew and the guys back for another project any time. Thank you again for going the extra mile – we are very grateful.
