Southside was selected to design-build this new two-story state-of-the-art automotive retail facility located in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Winstead Wilkinson Architects designed the 35,000 square foot dealership with impressive features including an exterior skin of architectural metal wall panels and ground face masonry units. The butt glazed glass system provides a monolithic glass wall.
Included in the showroom and sales area is a 2nd floor mezzanine with an ADA accessible elevator to house a conference room, offices, and a parts area as well as future office space. The 1st floor contains retail areas, sales and service offices, two wash bays, nine service bays, two alignment bays, a customer lounge with coffee/vending area, children’s playroom, cashier area, storage and tool room, break room, restroom facilities, as well as service write-up and warranty offices featuring two high speed roll-up doors.
Incorporated into the interior of the showroom are several areas for displaying new vehicles and a designated platform for the Owner to exhibit his own antique Ford. New finishes include laminate and solid surface counter tops, a complete painting package, vinyl wall covering, acoustical wall panels and ceilings, ceramic tile, carpet, resilient flooring, and epoxy flooring. A complete mechanical, electrical, and plumbing system was also included in this project in conjunction with site lighting and a fire alarm system.
