With a desire to relocate and expand, AutoNation chose this location at the intersection of two major highways to display their vehicles. In a creative, yet practical way, they were able to incorporate some of the old home improvement store into their modern operation. In between the old structure and the new showroom is a large maintenance facility with wide aisles and high ceilings - perfect for negotiated SUVs into the several lifts. Additional inventory can be stored on top of this facility by using the precast and prestressed products listed below.
Accelerated Construction Schedule – Precast components were fabricated while portions of the old building were being demolished and the site work was being prepared. Complete precast erection took place in just a couple weeks.
Very large spandrels were used alongside the Double tees to act as a vehicle barrier and to blend well with the aesthetics of the adjacent block of the existing structure and the cast-in-place concrete of the new structure.
