HagerSmith Design was procured to provide architecture and landscape architecture services for the Capital Chevrolet dealership. Through a schematic design process, inclusive of the owner, HagerSmith designed a masterplan for the new facility on a 20 acre site on US-1 in Wake Forest, NC. Based on future forecast, they believe the high visibility of their new home will increase sales considerably.
The 48,000 square foot building contains a state of the art showroom floor with supportive office spaces and training areas, as well as a 20,000 square foot service center area of the building contains a large storage area for parts, a service writing area for vehicular drop off, and a large Shop area containing 17 lifts for vehicular maintenance. Also on the site is a 6,000 sf body shop and car wash building.
Careful consideration was given to maintain the architectural standards established by Chevrolet Corporate Headquarters to reinforce Chevrolet’s branding elements. A prototype set of documents from Chevrolet were used as the basis of design.
