Featured project: Lookers BMW, Crewe
State-of-the-art garage equipment installation transforms BMW Crewe workshop
Part of a significant ongoing investment by Lookers into its dealership and servicing facilities, CCS Garage Equipment was appointed to design and install the group’s updated, state-of-the-art BMW Mini workshop in Crewe, Cheshire.
The huge workshop refurbishment was a key aspect of the site’s overall £4.5m redevelopment, which sees the Crewe dealership redesigned and transformed into a major regional BMW Mini retail and maintenance hub serving the brand’s customers throughout East Cheshire.

CCS’ garage equipment installation for Lookers’ BMW Crewe site is accommodated within the extended and extensively refurbished existing workshop building, with a scheme designed by our team to offer 10 servicing bays and much-needed additional capacity as the dealership grows in the coming years.
Having consulted with our client and its appointed architect and contractors from the outset of this exciting project and designed BMW Crewe’s workshop to suit the dealership’s operational needs and BMW Mini brand specification, garage equipment installation work commenced on site led by our dedicated project manager and experienced installation engineers.
