Almost 300 guests joined us on 19 May to celebrate the opening of our new enlarged energy efficient dealership for Audi Lincoln which represents a £2m investment by JCT600.
Guests enjoyed an entertaining evening with visual DJ Afishal performing, a Twitter vending machine which generated prizes for any guest who tweeted us, plenty of cocktails and, of course, a great selection of the latest Audi models!
Located on Doddington Road, the opening of the new sustainable dealership follows an eight month redevelopment programme and is double the size of the original showroom – it houses the biggest selection of Audi vehicles in Lincolnshire with over 80 new and pre-owned Audi cars on display.
The dealership also features one of the most advanced building management control systems in the motor industry with energy usage able to be controlled and closely monitored. The roof is also almost entirely covered in solar photovoltaic (PV) panels enabling it to generate its own electricity and sell any surplus back to the national grid. Energy and water consumption is closely monitored and daily reports are provided to check on overuse or wastage.
The new showroom has enhanced customer areas with a dedicated first floor service lounge and children’s play area downstairs as well as two bespoke vehicle handover rooms. It also includes the latest multi media integration with interactive screens.
“The new state-of-the-art showroom is a really eye-catching addition to the town as well as featuring the latest innovations to make it as energy efficient as possible,” comments Mark Taylor, group property director of JCT600. “As well as looking stunning, the redeveloped dealership will also greatly improve the customer experience. For example, it incorporates the latest Audi technology such as high tech vehicle configuration equipment enabling customers to build a virtual car and view it in 3D on an 80” screen in a private room.”
Located just off the A46, Audi Lincoln
has operated for over 20 years and employs 100 staff. It offers a full range of new and Audi-approved pre-owned vehicles as well as service and maintenance facilities.
