We began discussions early in the design phase with the Owners and their design professionals to provide initial budgets for several iterations of plans and designs. A final decision was made to construct a new GMC/Buick dealership facility which was built just 10 feet away from the original showroom and shop areas. Throughout the construction process, daily interactions with customers were not interrupted and we maintained access to the site and all operating systems (water, septic, power, phone, cable, etc.).
The new facility houses a glass front modern showroom, office mezzanine, state-of-the-art maintenance and repair area with drive in bays for customers, a 200 car parking lot on an adjacent property, and another 200 car parking lot surrounding the new dealership.
Additional work at this location will include salvaging 5,000 square feet of the original facility. A 500 square foot connecting structure has been designed to tie together this portion of the original building to their new facility.
