Forte Architects worked closely with Hale and Long Contractors on this design-build project in order to keep construction costs at a minimum. The Town Nissan Dealership was completed in 2014 at just less than 14,000 SF. The building structure is constructed from a pre-manufactured metal building but is hidden by the facility image façade of the Nissan Brand. Forte explored many materials to in order to vary from the more expensive standard materials to less expensive materials that met the same visual appearance in order to keep the project within the owner’s budget.
The program included a large glass-enclosed showroom, a cozy customer lounge and information center, 5 private offices, an employee break room, customer restrooms, 7 vehicle service bays, and service support areas.
