Ron Norris Buick/GMC Dealership
The Ron Norris Buick/GMC Dealership project located along Highway US 1 in downtown Titusville was a three-phase, design-build project constructed concurrently with the Ron Norris Honda Dealership project. The design and construction of the 15,000 square foot Ron Norris Buick/GMC Dealership was designed to the standards published by Gensler, the architectural agency which represents for General Motors. RUSH lead led the design firms through the detailed design reviews required by Gensler while ensuring that schedule and budget milestones remained on track. The existing 5.5 acre site was fully revitalized with new parking, storm water collection systems, wet/dry retention ponds, underground utilities, landscaping, and irrigation. Taking size constraints into account, RUSH was able to develop an elaborate phasing plan that allowed for the construction of new dealerships simultaneously while keeping the existing dealership open for business. The new Buick/GMC Dealership was equipped with a designated customer lounge, business center, full-service parts and service departments, and a showroom/sales office area in accordance with Gensler’s Facility Image Program. The Service Areas have aboveground vehicle lifts, air and lube system, vehicle exhaust extraction system, and dedicated technician computer work stations at each service bay.
