In March 2016, a decision was made to extend the Ford Parts Distribution Centre. An additional building providing new courses and training became available to adult learners, technicians, sales staff and management who work for Ford, as well as students taking the successful Ford Masters Apprenticeship programmes.
The two-level building includes workshop areas, classrooms, a 200-seat auditorium and a vehicle showroom. The interior and exterior of the building follow the design and style of the new-look Ford dealer showrooms.
Throughout the building, the latest materials and design layouts have been used to ensure excellent overall energy efficiency and environmental performance.
The Atlantic auditorium seat was chosen for this lecture theatre as it is ergonomically designed and provides a high levels of comfort. It is easy to install and maintain and is ideal for both refurbishments and new projects as the variety of seat centre choices enable the maximisation of seating capacity.
