Holloway and Davel Architects as Architects

The upgrade of BP Retreat Express shop, Cape Town is under way and building plans were submitted for approval. We covered the entire development process, from initial consultation and concept to continuous coordination and plan approval. Fuel station environments have become retail experiences capitalising on the opportunity to provide what people need in one-stop. With their mix of fuel, retail & motorist services, petrol stations definitely deserve special consideration as specialized destination brands. Construction to be completed in early 2018.


We follow a very methodical and unique approach to Fuel Stations Design, which includes concept design and initial feasibility reports, environment assessments as well as resource consents. We also handle Design Compliance Certificate documentation, engineering drawings & construction and provide comprehensive services such as:
