Dolphin Motorhomes is a very successful local business with two branches on the south coast, one in Southampton, and this site in Christchurch. DUA Architecture were employed to oversee the renovation of two buildings, the existing showroom and workshop.
The original workshop was an old timber building, which was unsuited to the needs of modern motorhomes and their servicing. We designed a replacement steel frame facility which allowed for the full service of larger motorhomes.
Clad with steel insulated panels, the new workshop is highly thermally efficient, reducing energy use and improving employee comfort. Daylight panels in the roof reduce the need for artificial lighting and enhance productivity.
We also designed an extension to the existing showroom, adding additional space to allow for a new servicing reception and improved staff facilities. Our design provides the business with light, clean, contemporary and efficient premises which better serve the demands of their expanding business.
