Motor dealerships turn to Technicrete

02 April 2015

Petrol stations and motor dealerships have specific requirements for paving on their premises to meet differing operational requirements such as new, pre-owned and commercial vehicle sales; vehicle maintenance bays and drive-through business.

Key requirements are durability, good appearance and cost competitiveness.

These factors led to Technicrete products being selected for the revamp of Lionel Motors in Rustenburg as well as for seven Westvaal Delta motor dealerships.

Lionel Motors required their entire site re-kerbed along with paving for heavy-duty truck display areas and under-roof outdoor pre-owned display sections.

Brink Jordaan, MD of RTB Civil Tech said: “We sourced Technicrete DZZ grey 60s and 80s for the 1463-m2 pre-owned and heavy-duty truck areas of the dealership.

The DZZ interlocking pavers gave the dealership a hard wearing yet attractive finish. The 2,086 precast kerbs we used included barrier kerbs and semi mountables in two sizes.”

“The area for the under-roof display of pre-owned vehicles was important as pre-owned vehicles can suffer oil and grease leakage, making Technicrete’s charcoal cobble perfect for this application. The leaks are absorbed into the black colouring, enabling the display area to retain its clean, professional appearance,” said Jordaan.

“We at RTB Civil Tech had excellent technical support from Technicrete and we like the longevity of their products,” concluded Jordaan.

Seven branches of the Westvaal Delta car dealership group recently had complete facility upgrades; their petrol forecourts, showrooms and yards were revamped with Technicrete paving.

Mike Prinsloo, MD of Westvaal Delta said: “The quality of the Technicrete paving is good and it is durable. We used 3,594.5 m2 of their Autumn BondBricks which, while known as a traditional and reliable option for commercial surfaces, specifically meets our needs as a vehicle sales and petrol service station operation.

“We also used 1,500 Technicrete grey 60s, 660 Earthform greys, and a mixture of mountable, semi mountable and garden kerbing on the seven dealerships,” said Prinsloo.

The Earthform range was utilised to simplify the maintenance of steep areas by providing easy-to-maintain walls that can be stacked up to eight layers high and incorporate spaces for plants.

“The dealerships now look smart and professional. Technicrete’s products are competitively priced, delivery is reliable and we will definitely use their paving again as we continue to refurbish branches throughout the region,” said Prinsloo.

Technicrete is part of the IS Group of companies, comprising Technicrete, Oconbrick and Rocla.
