McKenney-Salinas Honda

McKenney-Salinas Honda

Southside teamed up with McKenney Salinas Honda to convert the vacant 52,000 SF Toys-R-Us facility into their new headquarters. Project includes complete demolition and reconstruction of the front facade to meet Honda Generation 3 requirements. Interior spaces includes a three lane service drop-off, 10,000 SF new car showroom and sales area, and two interior new car delivery areas. The 30,000 SF service area will include 30 lifts/service bays, car photo booth, specialty detailing bays with guest viewing area, and quick service bays. By utilizing an existing vacant facility the Owner was able to reduce the overall construction cost by 25% and eliminate the need for extensive erosion control, storm drainage, new asphalt paving, and turning/exit lane work. The overall construction schedule was also reduced by 25% over traditional ground up construction.

Southside was chosen by McKenney Chevrolet to perform interior and exterior renovations to make the existing facility in Lowell, North Carolina compliant with GM branding requirements. Using plans designed by C. Jeff Stroud, A.I.A., Southside offered several value engineering options to lower the cost without comprising the quality of the renovations. After selective and structural demolition, Southside renovated the customer areas including the indoor showroom and offices, service write-up area, cashier office, parts department, and the outdoor showroom. The scope of work consisted of all new interior finishes and lighting and a new exterior skin construction of composite panels. Southside completed the project in phases and planned the schedule to limit disruptions, allowing the dealership to remain open during the renovations.
