In mid-2018, ICI began a major overhaul of the Napleton Automotive Group’s Nissan Dealership in St. Louis. After demolishing the existing one-story showroom wing, ICI will construct a new 16,000 SF showroom that will connect to the existing service building. ICI will also remodel several spaces within the existing building such as the service department, service writer’s areas, administration offices and waiting areas. The space will remain operational throughout construction; the new Nissan Dealership is anticipated to open in early 2019.
ICI broke ground in August 2018 to build Fields Automotive Group Inc.’s new Jaguar Land Rover Jacksonville dealership. The project will replace the existing dealership with the intent to demolish upon the projects completion.
This $3 million construction job, which will create a 34,293-square-foot dealership with another 2,700 square feet of unenclosed space on 6.72 acres, will feature the new “Arch” design. This marks ICI’s latest project with Fields; a partnership that began over 20 years ago resulting in over 25 successful projects.
Phase I of the project consists of tearing off the showroom of the existing Infiniti dealership and performing selective demolition within the remaining two-story building that houses office and the parts department. ICI will then build a new Volvo showroom and service drive where the former Infiniti showroom was located. In addition to the showroom and service drive expansions ICI will renovate the existing parking lot and other exterior improvements.
The new service department addition will become operational upon completion of Phase II. All Volvo cars will be serviced at the former Volvo Dealership for the interim. Additionally, Phase II includes building out the service building, a parts department and offices.
Major improvements to the school will include a new secure main student entrance, new cafeteria and student commons area, an expansion for a aquatic center, and a new wing to house a fine arts center, preschool and daycare. Also included in the scope of work is the transformation of several existing areas to allow for new locker rooms, new science labs and a new wrestling room. Exterior enhancements will include a new bus lane and a courtyard created by the addition that will allow for students, staff and administration to be outdoors during the school day.
The new 84,289 square foot school is being constructed on the same site as the existing school. The first floor houses 12 classrooms, 3 shared learning spaces, 3 pull out spaces, a cafeteria and adjacent kitchen, a gymnasium and multiple ancillary spaces. The second floor contains 9 classrooms, 3 shared learning spaces, 3 pull out spaces, a library, art and music rooms, a makerspace, special education areas as well as storage and a teacher lounge.
The school incorporates many eco-friendly elements including geo-thermal energy, an expansive rain garden and sunshades.
The scope of upgrades includes major renovations to the kitchen/eating area and upper LRC / curricular wing. A subsequent courtyard addition will provide a new LRC and student commons. The existing spaces on both the upper and lower floors within the building will be transformed to educational space.
