FPM have again excelled at a refurbishment contract in our premises to a high standard of workmanship & project management. Work was carried out in line with the Academy staff and concluded in no disruption to any of the delegate training sessions. All was carried out to budget, to schedule and importantly zero incidents.
MyAcademy, the training division of Vauxhall Motors first opened its doors as a training facility in the early 1990s. Now run as an outsourced solution by Raytheon Professional Services, the Academy specialises in training the Technicians, Salespeople and Management staff from the network of Vauxhall Dealerships across the UK.
Dedicated purely to training, 18,000 delegates pass through the Academy every year. Made up of a ground floor showroom, two conference rooms and two training classrooms with attached workshops, it’s a busy environment.
With so much foot traffic, it’s important that the college is maintained to the high standard that the delegates would naturally expect. As preferred contractors for Vauxhall, we were commissioned as part of their planned maintenance programme to revamp the training rooms and adjoining workshops.
Consisting of a mix of electrical and general decorating work, we isolated and stripped out the existing lighting before replacing it with new energy efficient LED fittings; upgraded and fitted appropriate, fit for purpose flooring (non-slip epoxy in the workshop for example) and painted and decorated throughout. Once complete we also sourced and fitted the various TVs, projectors and equipment.
To ensure that the workshop environment is kept tidy we also designed and built a new store room. The block wall and steel open top store room was completed as part of the workshop refurbishment and was made available to the technical training team earlier this month.
