Since developing Hippo Motor Group’s purpose build show room and service centre in 2013, the motor group has experienced phenomenal growth.
Hippo’s rapidly expanding business now requires a further preparation centre which will be developed on the land adjacent to their show room.
The Prep Centre proposed for 2018 is located on Blackburn Council’s former tip site off Lower Philips Road. The Prep Centre is 30,345sqft over two storeys comprising 25,000sqft ground floor area with a Body Shop, Wheel Service, MOT Bay and Workshop. There is also a customer entrance, foyer, office and meeting room. The first floor is just over 5,000sqft of offices, canteen, changing area and storage mezzanine.
Externally there is a significant area to develop, with over 100,000sqft of road, car parking and service yard. We’re also developing a Service Centre building at the north of the building which provides wash down and valeting, inspection areas and photographing facility.
