Currently located in a shopping center strip mall, the owner of Riverside Automotive Group knew a new location was key to growing their business. Redmond was selected to assist the dealership with a new building on a property purchased down the road from their current site. The new corner property, along a major highway, gives high visibility to the three different brands of Riverside Auto: Honda, Nissan, and Toyota. Redmond’s services include the design/build of a new 36,000 square-foot facility and related site work on the 5-acre parcel. A challenge on this project was the time of year construction was scheduled to begin. Redmond solved this by separating the project design into two phases. The first design documents completed were for an early start package which included site work, concrete, masonry, and structural steel while the second package was the remainder of the building. This strategy expedited the start of the project and allowed Redmond to start the job two months earlier than the standard schedule. The two extra months gave Redmond time to get the building shell up before winter arrived, limiting the costs and difficulties of construction under winter conditions. Completion is scheduled for June 2019.
