Daimler Chrysler
Head Office, Milton Keynes
This project is a £4.25m development which links the existing administration building with a logistics centre. This high profile development consists of three storeys of combined office and retail display area and also a new entrance and reception.

On the ground floor there is an extensive showroom space which is intended to showcase the wide range of the company’s products including articulated trucks. This part of the building has a feature treble-height curtain wall curved in a shallow S-shape.

The upper floors of the extension are set back from the curved façade such that meeting rooms and office space look down on the showroom.

Completed Sites
Livingston PFS Whitehouse Farm PFS Small Format PFS
Small Format Remote Manned PFS
Martindales worked alongside Sainsburys to design and deliver their first small format PFS sites at Oakley, Whitehouse Farm and Livingston.  The company goal is to have a petrol offer at as many Sainsbury's stores as possible.
Hydrogen Installation, Hendon
Martindales worked alongside Air Products to deliver the new Hydrogen filling station located at Sainsbury's supermarket Hendon.

It is being delivered as part of a project aimed at creating the UK's first hydrogen transport system.  The London Hydrogen Network Expansion (LHNE) project, backed by UK government.  This is one of only a few in London and the first to be installed in conjunction with a traditional supermarket anywhere in the UK.

With the drive to make the fuel industry more green and a commercial roll out of hydrogen fuelled cars expected this year, this represents a massive step forward in progress of developing more ECO friendly vehicles and fuels.

Martindales are proud to have been a part of this fresh and innovative installation.
