This 1700 square-metre facility meets all the client’s requirements for a display showroom with storage, workshop and office facilities.

Central Forklift Group, which has one of the country’s largest fleets of hire vehicles, says the new building has improved office efficiencies while providing an architectural space to display its machines.

The building is located in a park-like setting that fronts a busy interconnecting road to the motorway. The award-winning design has resulted in a modern, eye catching industrial building that is cost effective and efficient.
