Kia Motors’ flagship London showroom covers up with Encasement

Latest News Tue, Nov 17, 2020 2:47 PM


Kia Motors’ flagship West London dealership, GWR Kia, is using 34 ‘Forma’ aluminium column casings from Encasement to conceal structural steelwork in the three-storey building, which is the brand’s largest showroom in Europe.

Located in Brentford on the Great West Road, the dealership not only provides extensive sales, display and servicing areas for Kia’s wide model range, but also a full height customer reception foyer, an integral café lounge and a 17 metre x 4 metre LED display screen on the top floor, which is visible from the adjacent M4 motorway flyover.

Each of the Forma column casings were supplied and installed by us and are manufactured from 3mm thick aluminium with a pure white RAL 9010 PPC finish to integrate with the interior design scheme and adhere to Kia’s brand guidelines.

While two of our Forma casings are 550mm diameter and stand 3,600 mm high, a further 29, measuring 500mm diameter, are used on each floor to conceal structural steelwork and range in height from 3,600mm up to 4495mm depending on the location. The final three 500mm diameter casings are located inside the main entrance and span the full floor to ceiling height of 8,f100 mm.

To reach the extended height, the casings are stacked using 3,000mm standard lengths and seamlessly joined, while also being cut, trimmed and fitted around existing structural beams to provide a high quality precision finish to the interior.

Encasement’s MD, Martin Taylor, explained: “The facilities at GWR Kia are exceptional and the prime location adjacent to the elevated section of the M4 makes this location extremely visible for the brand especially, when it is lit up at night. As the column casings are so visible throughout the showroom and even through the glazed facades, it was essential for Kia that the standard of installation and finish, together with the product quality, was of the highest standard and we’re delighted that they chose Encasement.”
