New service station sets the standard
The new BP2go Redcliffs includes a 300sqm retail Shop, 130sqm workshop, and a car-wash facility.

Bigger, better and brand new – BP2go Redcliffs’ stunning new service station is setting a new standard in customer convenience.
Replacing an older earthquake damaged service station, the new service station, which opened for business in May, provides a broader range of services and products and introduces new EV technology.
Super-fast EV charging stations, a barista café service with café seating, free WiFi, free mobile phone charging ports and scoop ice cream in a cone are just some of the new features that sit alongside the more usual service station offerings.
Out in the forecourt, 95 grade fuel has been added to the standard line-up of 91, 98 and diesel, with pumps increased from four to six.
The $3 million construction project was undertaken by Cassidy Construction and includes a 300sqm BP2Go Retail Shop, 130sqm workshop, a car and dog wash and a forecourt canopy.
With the main buildings now completed and fuel tanks in the ground, Napier based Future Product Group (FPG) is undertaking the shop fit-out, ready for the first customers to be served at the end of May.
Excited about the new development, managing director Robert Jiang says BP2Go is the only service station and workshop in the local Redcliffs community, providing a genuine one-stop-shop experience for his customers.
“The station really does look very beautiful with a very modern layout and up-to-date facilities,” Robert says.
“It will be much easier for my customers to use the fuel dispensers, which are all brand new and use modern technology. The old pumps were quite noisy and slow—the new ones are much faster and very quiet.”
Robert says the larger retail space enables a wider range of grocery products to be stocked, along with snack foods, car care products and some vehicle accessories.
“It’s like a one-stop-shop—customers can step into the shop while their cars are being serviced or charged, grab a coffee and some ready-to-go food like the famous BP pie, sandwich or a scoop ice cream, watch TV or use the free wifi .”
Purchasing the earthquake damaged petrol station in 2011, Robert balanced the $500,000 repair cost with building a brand new one.
“There were two factors to consider,” explains Robert.
“The first was the out of date layout of the retail shop. The second factor was that in 2016, an-other earthquake damaged one of the underground fuel tanks.”
While the tank suffered minor damage only, there was always the risk that it would not be strong enough to resist a further quake so in the end the decision was made to completely rebuild.
To accommodate the additional facilities and larger premises, Robert bought two neighbouring properties increasing the total area size from 2000sqm to 3000sqm.

“We’re trying to create a business where it’s easier for the customer to park the car, grab a coffee, pay their account, take away their food while waiting for the mechanic repair or car wash or just take a break with friends.”
