Our client needed a major update to their building to attract new customers and compete with surrounding car dealerships. They also needed an experienced commercial contractor who could stay on budget and complete the renovation quickly as they were working out of a temporary space.
Rather than destroy the building and build from scratch, we advised a partial building demolition. This translated to significant cost savings for our client, but also that the demolition had to be executed with extreme care. The dated stonework on the front of the building was removed slowly with jackhammers while crews cleared away interior walls, ceiling, and flooring. Demolition debris was removed largely by hand to avoid unnecessary from large machines. Once the partial building demolition was complete, rebuilding could commence.
The new front of the building would be completely different than before, so our team constructed a steel structure to support the modern exterior. Cranes were brought in throughout the project to hoist materials high into the air for steelworkers to weld. Simultaneously, while the steelworkers were reshaping the building, roofers were applying a new roof that would be far more efficient than the previous roof, another cost savings for our customer.

Once the outside of the building was nearly complete, work on the internal features started. A new tile flooring was placed with the knowledge that soon new cars would be parked on the surface. Every detail of the interior was aligned with Honda’s brand guidelines, keeping our client in compliance. The final touches include new signage and modern, efficient lighting installed throughout the interior. Our client was able to move back into their space earlier than anticipated and the were no surprise budget overages. Their “new” building will deliver an impressive customer experience as well as save on operating costs from the numerous efficiency gains.
