Gariep Motors required a new Mercedes-Benz commercial vehicles dealership focused purely on vehicle servicing and part sales. The design had to comply with the latest Mercedes-Benz modern luxury specifications as well as Mercedes-Benz green requirements. Worldwide, this commercial vehicles facility was the first to be constructed according to the new Mercedes-Benz black column architecture with its contrasting white surfaces. Luxurious finishes in customer contact areas are balanced with a focus on durability in the vehicle servicing workshop and parts storage area. Soft landscaping confirms to green requirements through the selection of water-wise plants that flourish in the Kimberley climate (with its extreme temperatures and dry winter periods). Water from the wash bay is recycled via a three-stage process and reused as grey water.
