Colourful Finish for Hi-Tech Automotive Service Centre

Flowcrete in the Middle East has been involved in a state-of-the-art automotive project at the Al Futtaim Motors Group's new Toyota Service Centre in Dubai Festival City.

Designed to expand the company's aftersales service following significant sales growth within the region, the new service centre boasts a wealth of facilities including semi-enclosed touchscreen service bays, motorised scooters that carry parts across the centre as well as a first-class customer lounge complete with iPad style table-top brochures.

Spanning over 14,500 square metres, the fully air-conditioned facility employs 105 technicians manning 82 service bays and represents the Al Futtaim Motors Group's largest automotive facility in the Middle East. Over 11,000 square metres of Flowcrete in the Middle East's Flowshield LXP HD have been installed across the centre's main service areas including all service bays as well as the in-house recycling and waste regeneration plant.

Flowshield LXP HD was selected on account of its excellent abrasion, impact and slip resistance as well as its colourful and seamless aesthetic. The product was used in conjunction with linemarking products to designate working zones, specialised bays and walkways.

The new centre represents an exciting landmark for the Middle East automotive industry, not only on account of its hi-tech interior but also the company's commitment to sustainable operations. The centre is home to a host of energy saving features that include atriums for natural day light and a solar-powered lighting system for the 100 capacity car park. The centre's car wash operation is fitted with technology that directs used water to the recycling plant of the facility which also includes a compartmented scrap yard for waste segregation. On top of this, each service bay is equipped with its own recycling solutions.

In addition, 3,000 square metres of Flowcrete's pigmented polyurethane coating system, Flowcoat LXP, has been installed in specialist areas of this innovative facility.
