Raymond, N.H.-based Jewett Construction Company, Inc. has been selected to design build a new dealership for Reynolds’ Subaru based in Lyme, Conn.
The Reynold’s Subaru design-build dealership involves the construction of a new 22,250 SF facility requiring careful coordination between Subaru of New England and the Town of Lyme, Conn. for incorporation of both the manufacturer’s current image upgrades and the town’s stringent zoning requirements. The new facility will combine the iconic stone veneered Subaru tower into a historic carriage house design with vertical siding, architectural asphalt shingles, gabled roof lines, and New England barn-inspired accents.
Construction of the new, ground-up, waterfront facility also includes major site improvements, demolition of two existing buildings, an elevator system, acoustic ceilings and tile flooring to match manufacturer image upgrades. A full walk-out basement opens to an IPE-clad waterfront patio with blue-stone paver hardscape facing the waterfront.
The basement level will include corporate offices, a conference room, employee and automotive tech breakrooms, and file storage space. The first floor deck has been ruggedly designed to support the Reynolds’ Subaru vehicle inventory and new showroom/office functions.
The new 5,000 SF customer-centric showroom will include a customer lounge with fireplace and coffee bar, a kid’s zone, a quiet lounge, inviting sales management offices, and a retail parts counter.
A high-end 9,400 SF service department will include a radiant heated floor slab, full-coverage automotive-grade tile flooring, a service drive and customer write-up area, a parts storage department, and 12 service bays with fully recessed in-ground lifts. All work is expected to be completed by June, 2017.
