Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) is a company that brings together two much loved, highly prestigious British car brands – Jaguar and Land Rover.
After Tata Motors acquired Jaguar and Land Rover from Ford in 2008, it merged the two marques into a single company and its success has flourished. The company manufactures memorable vehicles and innovative technologies that continue to add to a long-lasting legacy of innovation and style.
Buckingham Coatings proud to work with JLR
Our team at Buckingham Coatings was very excited to be commissioned to work on this Jaguar Land Rover dealership at Westfield in London.
As a brand renowned for being Britain’s premium car company, JLR’s standards for high quality, engineering excellence and advanced design are paramount to the look and feel of luxury they are known for.
When the cladding was damaged at this flagship dealership, it was crucial that it was put right as quickly as possible. Buckingham Coatings was therefore brought in for a fast and effective cladding repair and respray job.
Working with our customers
Due to the strict health and safety guidelines at Westfield works had to be completed whilst the centre was closed, due to the late opening of the adjacent business extra care was required to ensure the safety of our operatives, other Westfield staff on site and the general public.
Working area was secured with chapter 8 barriers, this ensures that the working area cannot be accessed by anyone other than properly trained staff.
As works were completed at night there was a lack of natural light, this meant that we had to use specialist lighting to ensure that working area was fully visible. This was key as we were matching the colour of the existing cladding and this can be difficult without the appropriate lighting.
When the damaged cladding panels were repaired, our colour technician was sent to site. The colour being used was bespoke to JLR Westfield which required us to prepare the paint on the premises to ensure that we achieved the exact, colour-match finish required for the cladding respray coating.
A premium quality finish
Works were completed within the agreed timescale and, as can be seen from the photographs, to the high visual standard that JLR expect from such a high impact dealership.
We would like to thank Chris and his team for the excellent service during our cladding respray at our Jaguar Land Rover Store. From initial quote through to the completion of the works there has been excellent communication and consideration throughout. There was a few bumps in the road (none of which were Buckingham Coating’s doing) but this was processed quickly and with care. We will definitely deal with them again, and recommend to others!Lauren, Commercial Manager, 7/3/2019
