Ellsworth, ME Jewett Construction Company, Inc. has been selected by Stanley Subaru to undertake a 22,000 s/f design-build renovation of its auto dealership. The project includes renovations and three additions to the existing dealership and annex buildings.
Carefully coordinated project phasing will be undertaken to ensure the firm’s daily operations continue uninterrupted. A conventionally-framed addition to the annex building will first be constructed, creating a new auto reconditioning department and administrative offices—after which all operations will be relocated there while the second phase of construction is underway.
Phase two includes both a renovation of the dealership building’s existing interior in accordance with Subaru of America’s latest image upgrade requirements as well as two additions, a pre-engineered metal building by Butler Manufacturing to house a new service department, and a conventionally-framed addition destined for a new, expanded showroom—the two additions requiring the integration of steel-framed structures with wood framing, as well as conventional steel with pre-engineered metal building components. The entire project will be completed by January 2017.
