Abstract: Auto mechanics as it stands now has undergone numerous degrees of phases and changes over the years as man made one discovery after the other. The various stages of mans development in descriptive terms meant an agglomeration of certain types of goods and services within that particular era, which also can be interpreted into various systems and mechanisms of exchange within time and space. Auto mechanic activities within the whole country — (Kumasi Suame Magazine ) has developed to the stage whereby earth moving equipment which once used to be enjoyable and highly safe to use has now become a much dreaded experience due to leak of artisans in the country, low technical knowhow, and its negative socio-economic and health implications. The thesis aims at solving or reducing this existing menace by providing the public with an alternative unit — one stop heavy duty equipment auto mechanical shops, which is designed principally to satisfy the needs of both the industrial companies and the prospective spare part seller. This outfit by design solves the problems of circulation, ventilation, lighting, storage spaces etc. For this reason and more, this project is sited at Suame Magazine Kumasi. This means that prospective customers and sellers are really taken away from the congested zone to a less congested zone where commerce can go on with minimal special restrictions.
