Braintree, MA – Polar Design Build announced that it has finished the structural steel frame of the 40,000sf automobile dealership under construction for Sullivan Toyota in Kingston.
The project team includes owner’s representative Richard Vazza, architects The Curtis Architectural Group, civil engineers McKenzie Engineering Group, structural engineers Flood Consulting, and MEP engineers CBC Engineering.
In Phase 1, there were two existing buildings demolished onsite. The construction team carried out Geotech ground improvement and the installation of Geopiers before the foundation was poured. The dealership was constructed with structural steel and metal insulated panels on the exterior. The first floor is 34,000sf and will be made into a showroom. The second floor is 6,000sf and will be made into an office and storage area. In addition, there will be an elevator installed with access to each floor.
In Phase 2, Polar will replace the original lot and create 310 spaces for new and used vehicles as well as customer and personnel parking. The Sullivan Toyota dealership will then shift its operations from the old building to the new building. There will be associated site-work, and a final cleaning will occur. The new dealership is due to be completed in March 2018.
