Creating a state-of-the-art workshop fitout for Dominelli Group

How Levanta designed & built a turn-key workshop solution

In late 2016, Dominelli Group in Sydney developed new state-of-the-art showrooms and service centres for both their Ford and Renault dealerships. As one of the first dealerships in Australia that would meet new Corporate Identity requirements for each marque, Dominelli Group wanted an impressive new workshop fitout that would present their brand and business to great effect. They turned to Levanta for assistance.

We spoke to Adam Dominelli, CEO of Dominelli Group, to get his impressions of Levanta’s workshop fitout process, and to find out how Levanta created this impressive new cutting-edge facility.

Communication the key to a smooth experience

After Dominelli Group conceived the idea for a new fitout, they began the search for a supplier with the capability they needed. In an initial meeting with Levanta, they knew they had found what they were looking for.

From the start, Dominelli Group were impressed by Levanta’s open communication and proactive approach. “You ask a lot of questions during such a project and Levanta had the answers. Any time we wanted a meeting to discuss our project, Levanta were happy to oblige,” said Mr Dominelli.

Levanta’s design team went to work to create the ideal workshop fitout for Dominelli Group’s requirements. They delivered a complete design package including floor plans, sketches, and architectural layouts to ensure the client was kept completely up-to-speed.

“Levanta have a good reputation in the industry and from our experience it’s well deserved,” Adam said. “The whole team is always very obliging – nothing’s too much trouble.”

“When you invest a lot of money, you want to feel as though you’re appreciated. I certainly got that impression with Levanta.”

The advantage of a comprehensive workshop fitout supplier

“One of the things that drew us to Levanta was the fact that, like Dominelli Group, they are a family owned and run business,” Adam said. “Yet they have the capability to deliver the complete package we needed.”

A major consideration for the project was the need to meet brand new Corporate Identity requirements for Ford and Renault. Dominelli Group found that Levanta were well versed in working within such guidelines.

“Levanta aim to be a true long-term partner with our business, and that’s what we found,” Mr Dominelli said. “They go the extra mile.”

As a turn-key workshop fitout, the project encompassed everything from car hoists and knuckle lifts to wheel alignment and tyre fitting equipment, workshop benches, and even a floor washing machine.

“There’s not one item in our workshop that was supplied by anyone else,” Mr Dominelli said. “It’s very helpful to get everything from one supplier on a project of this scale.”

“Thanks to Levanta’s capability for delivering the entire workshop fitout, I’d say we had a much smoother experience than if we’d chosen to use multiple different suppliers.”
