HOLLISTER CONSTRUCTION SERVICES COMPLETES MAJOR RENOVATION PROJECT FOR SMYTHE VOLVO DEALERSHIP
PARSIPPANY, N.J.– June 17, 2014 – Hollister Construction Services (Hollister), a leading full-service construction manager specializing in corporate, educational, healthcare, industrial, retail, and residential construction, has completed the renovation of the former Barnes Chevrolet building on River Road in Summit, N.J., creating the new home of Smythe Volvo which celebrates its grand opening today.
The project entailed gutting the building down to its block wall shell and replacing the existing brick façade with a new two-story glass curtain wall system. The original building was built as an urban car dealership, with roof-top parking. This area received poly-tuff epoxy flooring and a canopy of solar panels to create an open-air third-floor showroom.
Removing a central stairwell now provides views from the second floor over a new glass railing to the newly tiled showroom below. A full 17-bay service area was completely renovated on the first floor, below the River Road street level. At 15,000 square feet, the new facility is approximately three times the size of the dealership’s former showroom. The architects for the Smythe Volvo project were Schier & Lesser Architecture Studio, LLC, and the engineers were Becht Engineering.
“Breathing new life into old challenging buildings is one of our strongest skill sets. The new building shines on this main corridor and we were proud to be a part of it,” stated Chris Johnson, CEO of Hollister Construction Services.
