Fields Auto Group
JRB Group Architects
ICI completed all preconstruction and site work for the Chrysler Jeep Dodge Dealership in “The Glen” in Glenview, Illinois in 2004. The project was then put on hold for several years. After the hiatus, Fields Auto Group once again turned to ICI for the completion of the project. Construction of the building took place beginning in early summer 2013 and was turned over to the client in March 2014.
The facility was constructed on what was originally intended to be a 6.125 acre detention area for the adjacent retail complex. Therefore, ICI went to extreme measures to construct a building pad suitable for construction of the facility. ICI prepared a soils import/export cost analysis report and recommended a change in the planned elevation to provide a cost savings of $450,000.00. Site work included the installation of 137 caissons at a bearing elevation of -20 ft. Additionally, ICI has installed the facility’s stormwater detention system, comprised of 2,400 lineal feet of 8 foot diameter detention pipe.
The building is a stucco outer finish and features a massive glass curtain wall. The interior is constructed of high-end millwork and finishes under 20+ foot vaulted ceilings. The large showroom, waiting area, cafe, executive offices, service area and parts department are all included in this 42,000 SF auto dealership.
