11 Dec Jaguar Land Rover Hinsdale
Redmond has been selected as the Design/Build partner for the new Jaguar Land Rover dealership in Hinsdale, IL. The owner, J & L Hinsdale LLC, is expanding their brand from Land Rover to include Jaguar and purchased the property directly next to their current location to accommodate the expanding business and to update the facility to reflect the manufacturer’s standards. Working with local communities and being attentive to all stakeholders concerns is key on projects, and this project is no exception. A concern for the adjacent neighbors was the potential for additional noise with a larger dealership. Teaming closely with the owner, Redmond worked through the challenges of the local neighborhood meetings and designed into this project an attractive 8’ high stone wall and landscaping which will reduce noise and add an upgraded image that a fence would just not provide. The extensive neighborhood meetings did cause a three month project delay and the time needed to be made up. To accomplish this, Redmond split-up the bid package into two and timed the submission of the drawings for permit approval with the announcement of the local approvals. Once the Village of Hinsdale approves the project, construction of the dealership can begin within days. The dealership’s exterior will be comprised of aluminum composite panels with high-end finishes incorporated throughout, while the interior will include walnut wall panels and brushed aluminum accents. The structural frameless glazing will also offer a high-end finish and a view into the showroom. The new 38,000 square foot Jaguar Land Rover dealership will be open for business in late 2019.
