Auto Bavaria Midrand became the first black empowered Dealership in South Africa when it was purchased from BMW South Africa in 1998 by Andre Dreyer. Pamodzi Investment Holdings partnered with Andre Dreyer in 1999. In the twenty years of being one of the largest privately-owned Dealerships in South Africa, Auto Bavaria has gone from strength to strength; maintaining high levels of sales and service and consistently being one of the top Dealerships in the country.
The steel structure was divided into two phases with the canopies as the last phase. The spring height for the showroom is approximately 5m with reinforced concrete columns.
The challenges faced during the erection of the steel structure were mostly natural causes such as rain and wind that made working conditions difficult and thorough safety precautions were adhered to.
