Sytner has appointed Midas Construction to build a brand new Guy Salmon Jaguar Land Rover dealership at Cribbs Causeway, near Bristol.

As reported by AM Online, the dealership is expected to open in Spring 2020, the 72,000sq-ft site will feature more than 400 vehicles, showrooms and parking areas together with workshops and servicing bays. It’s a £12.3 million contract, and will also feature an office space over two floors, and roof deck and ground level external vehicle parking areas.

Derek Quinn, executive director for Midas Construction told AM Online: “It is a source of immense pride for us as a locally-based business to be delivering major new projects across a variety of sectors, thereby contributing to the development of our region’s economic, cultural and built environment.

“We are delighted to be working with Sytner Group at Cribbs Causeway on what will be an impressive new Jaguar Land Rover showroom, and building on our relationship with them as they continue to expand their coverage across the UK.”

Planning approval was also gained for another Guy Salmon JLR development, this time in Portsmouth.

Replacing the existing Guy Salmon Land Rover dealership on Compass Rd, Portsmouth, the new dealership is expected to create more than 100 jobs. Work is set to commence on site after Christmas.

So far this year, the group’s used car supermarket has already made plans for an all-new retail site in Nottingham.
