The previous structure had been a 15,000 square foot dealership with a showroom that was about 1400 square feet. We performed a renovation and addition enlarging the structure to 28,000 square feet. This included a brand new Cadillac showroom which came in at over 7,000 square feet, service department, parts department, and offices.
Designed in 2008, the Acura dealership in Valley Stream features a 5,000 square foot showroom, mezzanine, and a fully operational service center. The project included a general renovation of the parts department, service center, and site plan as well as an overhaul of the existing showroom.
We enlarged the showroom to about 7,000 square feet, and performed a reconfiguration of the interior spaces resulting in a larger showroom and an open space layout, increasing the efficiency of the usable space for the Service and Parts departments and offices.
The existing structure was a 28,000 2-story building. As part of the extension, we enlarge the showroom to about 7,000 square feet, and created a covered service entryway totaling about 3,000 square feet. The covered driveway acts both as a greater, more accommodating area for customers, as well as a focal point for people passing the structure.
We performed a conversion of an existing warehouse into a 15,000 square foot service center. We had to overcome challenging urban site conditions to achieve sensible circulation for the new structure type.
