We have over 25 years experience designing and building dealerships in the UK, Europe and the United States. SDA has worked with some of the largest and most demanding retail clients and in collaboration with core market and luxury manufacturers including Ford, Audi, Land Rover and Jaguar on over 500 automotive projects.

We know how to make buildings work: financially for the investors who agree to build them, as a workplace for staff who run them and as a compelling retail environment for customers, owners and visitors. We also know the importance of brand and its consistent application in the built environment and how to create a facility that conforms to agreed standards and helps in the delivery of service excellence.

Our involvement in the automotive sector continues to be a broad spread of refurbishments, redevelopments, new builds, multi-franchise and multi-site projects. We have also worked on the implementation and application of retail design standards across all projects.



We take a collaborative approach, balancing brand standards and business requirements. We always get to the heart of the brief, discussing the ambitions for the site with its management, maximising its retail impact and compliance to brand standards while minimising rework, project waste and the buildings’ environmental impact.
