The service centre fitout incorporated 2 post hoists, 4 post hoists, and scissor lifts to maximise vehicle throughput and lifting efficiency in the workshop.

Levanta incorporated a fully reticulated lubrication delivery system, complete with oil and tank level monitoring. These services were concealed beneath the workshop floor and in cabinets to ensure a tidy and professional finish.

Dura work stations throughout provided a high-class finish that was fully compliant with Jaguar Land Rover’s requirements for Corporate Identity.

Importantly, the Levanta team were engaged to became involved in the project before a builder was even chosen. This meant that detailed documentation could be provided to builders during the tender stage, ensuring there were minimal variations required for the finished project.

Focussing on efficiencies for high vehicle throughput

A critical aim for the Levanta design team was ensuring high vehicle throughput from the finished workshop layout.

Encouraging high staff engagement and low turnover is a major focus for modern dealership workshops. To this end, Levanta focused on ensuring immaculate built-in aesthetics, creating a workshop environment that’s a pleasure for Mercedes-Benz’s technicians to work in.

Smooth working relationship provides great end result

“Working with Levanta was a pleasure. They provided us with two key solutions which enabled us to work together quite smoothly and efficiently,” said Nik Katris, Group Fixed Operations Manager for Mercedes-Benz Castle Hill. “We’ve ended up with a great end product, so thanks again Levanta,” he said.

It’s a sentiment echoed by Meon Nehrybecki, Group Dealer Principal for Mercedes-Benz Castle Hill. “We worked with Levanta Workshop Systems right from the initial design phase with the architects, to ensure that we had all elements covered. It’s not every day that you build a new dealership.”

“It’s good to gain Levanta’s expertise from a national perspective,” Mr Nehrybecki said. “They’ve worked with a lot of automotive workshops and installs. They did everything from turn key to where are today.”

Tony Leahey Motor Group

New pre-delivery workshop for Tony Leahey Motor Group

Levanta delivers high class fitout in Orange NSW

As one of the largest vehicle service providers in Central West NSW, Tony Leahey Motor Group in Orange prides itself on offering its valued customers premium quality vehicle servicing.

They wanted to build a new, state-of-the-art service facility to service and maintain vehicles from their marques including Ford, Jaguar Land Rover, Nissan, and Hyundai, to the highest standards.

Tony Leahey Motor Group needed a pre-delivery facility that was configured as a workshop, along with detailing bays that would enable their technicians to deliver cars to their accustomed high standards.

Aesthetics, efficiency, and safety would be the priorities for the project. Tony Leahey Motor Group appointed Levanta to work closely with their builder on the new workshop design and build project.

Designing a functional workshop within a unique site footprint

Located on an unusual wedge-shaped corner block, the workshop called for out-of-the-box thinking from Levanta’s workshop design team. The building’s high level windows let in plenty of natural light which the design team were keen to make use of.

When installing two post hoists, to “future proof” the design Levanta allowed plenty of room in the workshop for additional service bays to be added down the track.

The addition of Dura workshop furniture ensured a high-class finish that met the relevant OEM Corporate Identity standards. For maximum efficiency, hose reels were integrated directly into the workshop furniture.

Levanta installed a full workshop lubrication system, complete with tanks, pumps, oil drainers, and all oil pipework. A custom compressor provided the right amount of air delivery directly to each work bay.

The fitout was completed with three wash bays complete with pressure washers and boom arms.

Levanta creates new fitout for Leichhardt Volkswagen

An efficient new workshop in Sydney’s inner west

Leichhardt Volkswagen was created when the Autosports Group took over an older, existing operational workshop for a different marque.

To complement their brand new VW showroom, they asked Levanta to deliver a complete upgrade to the workshop.

Located in a prime position visible from Parramatta Road, the workshop would incorporate new efficiencies and a brand new, high quality look.

Full workshop fitout provides comprehensive capability

A key requirement of the fitout was meeting VW’s exacting Corporate Identity requirements; and to meet the Levanta workshop team supplied and installed high quality Dura workshop furniture.

To provide an accurate and complete service to the customer base, Levanta also installed a fully functional wheel alignment hoist, wheel aligner, HPA tyre changer and wheel balancer.

Because the Leichhardt site was an additional workshop to VW’s Five Dock location, Levanta was engaged to supply transmission jacks, floor jacks, oil drainers and more, to ensure they had everything they needed to operate effectively.

Levanta also replaced all oil guns and reels and installed a matrix oil management system, providing improved visibility of oil usage to help increase dealership profitability.

The finished result is a highly productive, aesthetically pleasing, and well laid out VW dealership workshop.

A brand new turnkey workshop fitout for Redlands Mazda

First class aesthetics and usability delivered by Levanta

Redlands Mazda’s brand new dealership workshop has recently opened in Capalaba, complete with a first-class fitout from Levanta.

Built on a greenfield site, the new 20 bay workshop is a considerable upgrade on the business’s previous 12 bay layout.

Redlands Mazda first had their new building designed by architect, before engaging Levanta to assess the space and work out the best workshop fitout.

First class aesthetics and usability delivered by Levanta

With the workshop visible to customers, the overall look and feel was extremely important to Redland Mazda. They didn’t want ugly exposed oil and air pipework to be visible to casual observers.

Levanta’s design meant this pipework was hidden behind benches or Colourbond steel out of sight, with no oil lines hanging from the ceiling.

Efficiency and productivity were the other key requirements of the new fitout. To minimise the amount of time technicians spend away from their work bays, the setup included “1 between 2” oil consoles for mechanics to reduce the need for running around to hand pump oil; along with “1 between 2” computers rather than the old system of a single computer for the entire workshop. Redland Mazda’s technicians can now stay at their work benches with everything they need at their fingertips.

The fitout included the installation of two Quick Smart Bays – a new innovation for Redlands Mazda.

One welcome suggestion from Levanta was the installation of Dura workshop furniture throughout the fitout. “Initially we weren’t considering installing workshop furniture – all our technicians used to have their own tool boxes,” said David Grice. “Now though, with the Dura furniture we have a uniform look throughout the entire workshop.”

 

A seamless workshop fitout process from beginning to end

Redlands Mazda’s FOP David Grice said, “We told Levanta what we looking for with hoists, car throughput and the like.”

“From there, Levanta’s team designed the workshop layout and vehicle flow,” he said.

Mr Grice said he was impressed with how smoothly the Levanta team completed the project. “There were two of us involved in managing the project, each with 33 years and more industry experience,” he said. “Between us we have pretty extensive industry knowledge – yet still there were little things Levanta did that we hadn’t thought of.”

Not only was Levanta’s estimate to complete the work the cheapest, their service and efficiency were exemplary, Mr Grice said.

“What really blew me away was the guys who came out and installed and oversaw the fitout,” he said. “You couldn’t get a better bunch of blokes – they were helpful and easy to deal with. Nothing was too much trouble.”

Levanta’s team completed the work to a very high standard, Mr Grice said. “The workshop is clean and neat; you could say it’s the ‘perfect fitout’ really.”

“There was no need for ‘call backs’ as so often happens with trades to get it done right,” he said. “We’re very happy with the result.”
