Situation/Challenges

Renovate an active Nissan dealership with a national prototype design. The dealership needed to stay operational throughout the renovation process as the staff was not open to relocating to trailers during construction.

Approach

J.P. Salemi, Inc. developed a multi-phase plan that allowed the business to remain active while the renovation was completed. Phase 1 included a 2,000 sq ft expansion of the existing showroom. Phase 2 involved moving the entire dealership into the expansion area and building out the offices and customer interaction area. Phase 3 entailed moving the dealership into the new offices and tying the multiple areas together.

In addition to the internal renovation, a 290-space vehicle storage area was developed offsite so vehicle inventory could be stored close to the dealership.

Result

The phased plan was successfully completed on schedule. J.P. Salemi, Inc. was commended by the corporation as well as dealership owners on adherence to design. In addition, the dealership remained in business during the entire construction process and actually experienced an increase in sales during the project.
