A fully integrated workshop for Rockingham Mazda
Levanta recently completed a major new workshop fitout for the Rockingham Mazda dealership, situated 40km south of Perth in WA. The new dealership features a 28 bay workshop, designed to meet not only the dealership’s current needs, but also to provide sufficient capacity for projected business growth.
Close working partnership yields results
Rockingham Mazda’s architect designed the workshop layout and bay sizes, before Levanta’s WA Manager Alex Sharpe got involved in the project from an early stage.
The Levanta team then contributed to the final design, allocating the correct width for each bay based on hoist specs and the placement of equipment for the most efficient, safe operation – and the best vehicle throughput.
The close working relationship gave him a deep understanding of their specific needs, from the site layout right through to fully integrating equipment with Mazda’s Corporate Image (CI).
Levanta went to work installing an impressive array of the latest workshop equipment, including both 2 post and 4 post hoists that were custom-coloured in an attractive gun metal grey colour to meet Mazda’s Corporate Identity requirements.
In fact, so striking were they that BendPak in the United States decided to change from their previous default royal blue hoist colour, and supply all future hoists in a similar gun metal grey.
Cutting edge wheel service equipment
One important requirement for Rockingham Mazda was ensuring their new fitout included a state-of-the-art wheel alignment capability. It was part of their strategy of attracting only the best employees for their dealership.
“Our aim was to be a leader in offering wheel alignment services, ” said Doug Kerr from Rockingham Mazda. “We want to attract staff who pride themselves on doing good work – and we knew that providing the best equipment would help with that goal.”
Levanta met this need by installing a BendPak 4 post wheel alignment hoist and HPA C-1000 iNext 8 CCD wheel alignment system. The fast and precise C-1000 means that more alignments can be done each day, with compromising on accuracy.
Quick service bays provide outstanding service
Being able to provide excellent customer service was a prime requirement of the project. With this in mind, Rockingham Mazda installed two dedicated Quick Service Bays in their new fitout.
The Quick Service Bays allow customers to have their car serviced while they wait, enjoy a coffee, and relax in the lounge. The workshop layout even allows customers to see their car being serviced – all part of a great customer experience.
Levanta also designed and installed a fully reticulated distribution system for accurate and efficient delivery of oil, water, and air. The Matrix oil monitoring system can be pre-set for each vehicle being serviced, allowing Rockingham Mazda to accurately record when lubricants are dispensed and correctly invoice them to customers.
