In May 2015, ICI broke ground on a new 45,000 square foot two-story Porsche Dealership in Highland Park for The Exchange Auto Group. The project is targeted to be complete and open for business by summer 2016.

Within the Porsche Exchange Dealership, ICI will construct a new showroom, customer lounge, sales area, vehicle delivery, service reception space, service department for 15 vehicles, a two-level parts department and employee areas such as a break room and locker room.

The distinctive building exterior includes a structurally-glazed Fin system and aluminum composite wall panels consistent with the Porsche brand. The site employs an underground stormwater detention system and elaborate site lighting as well as parking for 268 cars. The interior of the building contains a variety of materials; from porcelain tile to Clinker tile, carpeting and vinyl floor finishes. Decorative metal panel ceilings along with high-end suspended ceiling systems and 8’ tall wood doors are just a few of the unique elements within the space.

The building is heated and cooled with 7 packaged rooftop units, make-up air units, infrared heating in Service areas, various exhaust systems and an elaborate control system.
