In order to meet the requirements of the General Motor’s Image Program, Gilchrist Chevrolet needed to renovate their existing facility. The upgrade provided a more eye-catching façade while the Chevrolet entry tower created a better-defined entrance into their showroom. Working closely with the GM Image program, Mountain upgraded the exterior of the building with Aluminum Composite Material (ACM) panels and increased the height of the building to help create a better scale. The interior work included creating a larger showroom with private sales offices, upgrading the sales, parts, and service department wait areas, upgrading the customer bathrooms and installing new tile throughout the customer touchpoint areas. To help increase the car lot display areas, we demolished the old Buick building then installed new asphalt and upgraded parking lot lights.
