J.C. Lewis Ford Dealership, Hinesville, GA

A Ford Dealership Features New Ford Prototype Aesthetics

The project consisted of the design and construction of an approximately 27,000 SF new Ford dealership located on an 8-acre site at 305 Oglethorpe Highway within Hinesville’s Downtown Overlay District. The building design was based on the 2016 Ford 750 Prototype, with a few minor modifications: the 6,700 SF Quick Lane Building is attached to the main building service drive, the car wash bay is an exterior bay attached to the service building, the building has 4 additional service bays, and a few minor interior plan changes. This project also included a partial demolition of an existing building and parking. The primary structural system at the showroom and brand wall consists of conventional structural steel, while the parts and service quick lane areas consist of a Pre-Engineered Metal Building (PEMB). This facility was constructed by Savannah-based Choate Construction and was completed in March 2019.

Hussey Gay Bell’s design services included architectural design, civil engineering, structural engineering, landscape architecture, geotechnical engineering, M/E/P engineering, A/V design, DOT permitting, bidding/negotiations and construction administration.
