Ennis Road Motors - Shannon, Ireland
Fall of 2005, Creative Surfaces built, shipped and installed custom commercial cabinetry for the automotive dealer – Ennis Road Motors in Shannon, Ireland. Throughout this project we maintained consistency with materials and colors to keep a unified look. Some areas we introduced a different countertop color to accent the product.
The reception desk half wall and back cabinets are made using Formica “Brushed Stainless” with Wilsonart “Deepstar Agate” plastic laminate countertops. The hood utilizes Wood Grain Maple Veneer stained to match Nevamar “Clear Maple” with Cambria quartz “Parkgate” transaction top and component steel legs for added support. Wilsonart “Dove Grey” was used for all toekicks throughout.
We built a 9′ tall accessory shop cabinet using “Brushed Stainless” on the exterior box door faces. The front of the cabinet has lockable sliding glass doors with glass panels on the backside of the cabinet. There are several four-sided displays. The 3′ tall displays have “Brushed Stainless” base and countertops. The sides are sliding glass doors. The 6″ tall displays have 6″ glass shelving on slat wall. All displays have locking casters.
Relax in the customer lounge while your vehicle is being serviced. Here Creative Surfaces built an entertainment stand, internet station, and kids zone. All the custom cabinetry in this area is built using Wood Grain Maple Veneer stained “Clear Maple” with “Brushed Stainless” apron boxes and Cambria countertops. The entertainment center has open shelving and a built in literature rack, AND accommodates a 42″ TV. The internet station has frosted plexi panels that divide the three stations. The kids zone also allows for a 32″ TV. The letters in the “Kids Zone” sign are all painted different colors – red, blue or yellow.
Let’s move to the sales desk with a horseshoe wall. Here, again to keep unified look we used the Wood Grain Maple Veneer on the half wall and “Brushed Stainless” countertops. The hood is made using 1/8″ Frosted Plexi panels and a “Brushed Stainless” transaction top.
A 10’x6′ graphics wall was built using “Brushed Stainless” counter and base with yellow Lexan wall face. Graphics applied to 1/2″ PVC and mounted to Lexan wall using 1 1/2″ mocket stand-offs. All other signage is backlit with flourscent lights; and have 1/2″ plexi faces with vinyl graphics. The interior vehicle ramp was built of plywood structure and covered in sculpted rock foam.
This is just one of several international projects Creative Surfaces has completed for customers.
