Trucks ‘R’ Us
The new headquarters and maintenance depot for Trucks ‘R’ Us, East Anglia’s leading supplier of new and used commercial vehicles, has relocated to a disused gravel extraction site in Suffolk.
For the new HQ, we have designed a simple portal-framed building with two level offices set into the last bay at the entrance. Whilst the essential construction of the building will be simple and efficient, we have developed a natural timber screen and cladding system which, combined with an appropriate landscape strategy, which will mitigate the visual impact of the proposal within its’ rural setting. The scheme will be a sustainable commercial development with, for example, rainwater recycling from the roof for vehicle washdown and an air source heat pump for the primary heating / cooling system.
